The VHSL Class 3 State Championship featured two teams who have been very good the past few seasons, but haven’t been able to pull off a championship yet. Northside out of Roanoke came into the game at 27-1 while Phoebus came into the game at 25-2, and the game played itself out the way you’d expect.
The first quarter both teams were a little sloppy, but they settled in and got things going toward the end when Northside junior Jordan Wooden hit a three to beat the buzzer and Northside was up 12-8 at the end of one. In the second quarter, Phoebus ramped up their press and really bothered Northside. They forced 10 turnovers in the first half, getting 8 points off of them and they parlayed that into a 29-20 lead at halftime.
