Kennedy clips Tecumseh Vista to win AA title

Both the Kennedy Clippers (3-6) and Tecumseh Vista Vortex (4-5) played up in the Tier 1 division this season and faced bigger schools like Sandwich, St. Anne and Holy Names. They didn't rack up a lot of wins but they did with more points for than against. Both teams were tuned up and faced each other for the AA final Sunday at the St. Clair College Sportsplex. For Tecumseh, this was the first sr. boys basketball final in program history. "I'm super proud of them for making it here and playing as hard as they did to the last buzzer." said Vista head coach Melanie Cardinal.

The game was a tight affair with the game heading into the half with Kennedy leading 27-23. The Clippers didn't break away from the Votex until late in the game when Jesse Mofat hit a 3-pointer with three minutes to go giving them a 52-44 lead.

Trailing by 11 with under a minute left Filip Malovic energized the crowd with a long distance jumper but the Clippers would go on to win 63-53. They'll host the SWOSSA championship at the Clipperdome Friday against Great Lakes. Tip off is scheduled for 5:30.

Check out Mofat's three, Malovic's long shot and post game interviews in the video below.
