What a Game: Plano edges DeSoto in double-overtime playoff thriller
Matt Welch email@example.com
On Friday, the Plano Senior and DeSoto girls basketball teams clashed in a second-round playoff game with the qualifications of a regional final and the drama of a state championship.
The two state-ranked heavyweights traded haymakers via clutch heroics, heart-racing momentum swings and resilient playmaking that required two overtimes to settle.
And although it was DeSoto that sunk the final shot in Friday’s contest, the Lady Wildcats had already put the game out of reach after a pair of free throws from senior Sophie Fleites gave Plano enough breathing room to claim a 62-61 victory in the Class 6A area playoffs, held at Richardson High School.
