Mercy HS wins! Congrats!

Mercy HS wins! Congrats!

The video you see above captures the final seconds of the Connecticut Class LL girls basketball state title game, a contest between Middletown (Ct.) Mercy High and state power Milford (Ct.) Laurelton Hall High. With just 3.8 seconds remaining, Mercy trailed by two, 53-51, but had the ball under its own basket.

Mercy’s Sheena Landry quarterbacked a near point-perfect three-quarter-court pass to teammate Cassandra Santoro. Just behind the three-point line, Santoro was immediately mobbed by Lauralton Hall defenders, but she found just enough space to slip a pass out to teammate Maria Weselyj.

Weselyj had just enough time to pull in the pass and launch a deep three, then watch it sail through the net for a near-miraculous 54-53 victory, sending the Mercy sideline and fans into a delirious celebration on the Mohegan Sun court in Uncasville.
