Neuqua Valley and Benet Academy are no strangers to being in the sectional of girls basketball. The two teams faced off in the sectional semifinals just two years ago, with the Wildcats getting the better of the Redwings on that night. The 2016 version of this matchup wouldn’t have the same outcome. After a slow start by both teams, Benet Academy raced out to a 13-point lead in the third. The resilient Wildcats would make a push, dropping the lead down to just two in the fourth. The Redwings never wavered, making their free throws down the stretch and avoiding the Neuqua Valley upset-bid to move onto the sectional final on their home court Thursday night.
