Holy Name 53, Wachusett 23

Saturday, Mar. 9, 2013, at Worcester

The Naps (22-2) showed why they were the top seed in Division 1, cruising past the third-seeded Mountaineers (18-5) in the championship game to avenge last year's loss to Wachusett in the title game. Holy Name held the Mountaineers to just six points in the first half. The Naps will play Chicopee in a state semifinal at 7:45 p.m. Monday at the DCU Center. Gigi Guenther, the only player in the game to reach double digits in points with 13, led a balanced offensive attack for Holy Name. Brianna Frias (9 points), Ama Biney (8) and Melissa Saad (7) combined to out-score Wachusett by a point, 24-23. Mikayla Singas paced the Mountaineers with 7 points.
