Facing a steep challenge, Allderdice girls basketball team wanted to go into Saturday’s City League championship game against Obama loose and confident despite the decided underdog role.
The Lady Dragons squad attempted to slow down the Eagles lethal attack at both ends of the court.
Allderdice only trailed by 22-19 at halftime, and they hoped to close the gap coming out in the third quarter.
But Obama, the defending City League champion, didn’t allow the Dragons to trim the deficit.
Obama Academy (20-4) defeated Allderdice (11-13) 64-33 at the Petersen Event Center.
