The path to the Charlotte Trojanettes’ first district title in 17 years is simple, all they need is a win on Tuesday (last night) after beating Great Hearts 47-29 on Friday, Feb. 7.

After being deadlocked 6-6 entering the second quarter, the Trojanettes went on a 17-2 run in the second quarter behind six points from Julissa Cantu and eight points from Jessalyn Sanchez to lead 23-8 at halftime.

Charlotte extended their lead to 36-14 behind buckets from Cantu, Sanchez, Mia Campos, Ariel Ramon and Mercedes Sanchez.

Jessalyn Sanchez led the way with 17 points on Friday night. Cantu had 11 points and three threepointers.

A road win against San Antonio Stacey would clinch the title for Charlotte (9-2 in 28-2A). A loss would make things tricky.

A loss means that Charlotte and Stacey (8-3) would both be tied for first place. If both Sabinal and La Pryor (8-3) win on Tuesday, that would force a rare four-way tie for first place.

All tie-breaking scenarios would require play-in games for seeding.
