Villa Saints Pick Up Second Win of the Season

Villa rolls past Clayton to reach title game of the consolation bracket at the MICDS Holiday Tournament.

A 2-6 start to the season is not what veteran Villa coach Jane Ellen Kuenzle had in mind for her team. But she'll take a 43-40 win over Clayton and be satisfied, for the moment.

Rachel Arnold dropped in both ends of a 1 and 1 free throw situation with 10.3 seconds left to seal the deal.

Villa meets Francis Howell, 1:30 p.m. today in the consolation championship game. Howell defeated Triad in the opposite bracket, 74-54.

Laci Sams, a senior for Clayton had 15 points; Nina Murov added 8.

Villa led Clayton at halftime 19-14. The Saints grabbed an early lead and were never headed.
