Langley, coming off a one-point win over Woodbridge and an overtime defeat of T.C. Williams on a last second shot in the state tourney, couldn’t keep the magic going in the final. The Saxons fell, 52-50 in overtime to Cosby Thursday evening in Richmond.
A Jordyn Callaghan steal and dish to Carly Britt tied the score at 44 at the end of regulation. Then the Saxons took a 50-46 lead on a three-pointer by Britt and an and-one drive by Lauren Maloney.
But it wasn’t to be. Cosby forced turnovers and eventually tied the game, winning it on a Nia Covington dish to Marissa Gallagher down low.
Covington, a junior, led Cosby (24-4) with 25 points. Senior Rana Azad had 17 points and six rebounds for the Saxons (21-8), while Britt added 11 and Callaghan nine.
“We played extremely hard–did what we did all season to get to this point,” Langley coach Amanda Baker said. “It was a two-point difference in this one, but to get to this point–I’m incredibly proud.”
