Here is the summary of the final flurry of action. Liz Perry made a steal at midcourt with 0:20 left. The ball came loose as two defenders converged on her. She continued after the ball after Mary McCarthy knocked it into open water, then Perry came up with another loose ball, made a pass to Mary McCarthy, who found Farren Rixter wide open at the point. She fired a shot with :00.24 left on the clock and hit the right corner of the net as the buzzer sounded and Fenwick wins the GIRLS STATE TOURNAMENT 10-9!!!!!!

Liz Perry made it happen. As she did throughout the entire game. Without even taking a look at the stats, her impact went well beyond the scorebook, because without her aggressive defense and hustle, the two teams were likely headed for overtime.

Both teams are in the water...

Fenwick Wins Boys State Tournament

In the aftermath of their victory, here are some quick postgame thoughts.

Kevin Kysiak was the player of the game for Fenwick. He scored four goals, including the first two of the game. He also added two assists and was all over the place for the Friars.

Steve Michelau was the player of the game for Stevenson. He had four goals and three assists for the Patriots.

That was also the best water polo game I have seen all year.
