After a while Tuesday night in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference girls’ basketball championship game at Bender Arena, the public address announcer would have to pause after he said a certain first name to make sure he tacked on the right last name.
In the end, with their teams facing each other for the third straight year in the championship, only one Lindsay/Lindsey could leave with a title. This time it was Allen, who scored 28 points and went 16 for 16 at the foul line in willing her team to a 67-66 win over the defending champions.
It was Allen, the league’s player of the year, who with a coast-to-coast layup off a steal with 4 minutes 23 seconds left gave St. John’s a lead it would not lose. It was Allen who hit two free throws with 31.5 seconds to play, fouling out Spann, to tie her season high of 28 points, after Good Counsel had pulled to 63-62.
