Needham and Xaverian Advance to the Championship

Last night’s Varsity Fall League action started out hot with a one point victory by Wellesley over Westwood (69-68), clinched by hitting the game winning free throw with no time on the clock.  With the victory, Wellesley clinches the 5th place spot in the league.

Up next were the 2 semi-final matchups.  First, the #1 seed Needham took care of business with a 9 point victory over the #4 seed Walpole (49-40) to advance to the finals.  On the other end of the bracket, the higher seed also prevailed with the #2 seed Xaverian pulling away in the last few minutes to secure an 8 point win (51-43) over the #3 seed Norwood.  

The final night of the 2015 Westwood Varsity Fall League will take place this Tuesday November 17th at Walpole High School.  The night will start with 2 consolation matches.  First, Norwood will take on Westwood at 6pm.  Then Walpole takes on Wellesley at 7pm.  Finally, the fall league Championship will be up for grabs as Needham goes for their 2nd straight league championship (they were also the 2015 Westwood Varsity Spring League Champs) against a very strong Xaverian team that has won the previous 2 matchups between the 2 teams.
