In a rematch of the 2020 FHSAA 2A State Championship, Orlando Christian Prep(OCP) & Impact Christian Academy(ICA) found each other squared off again to determine the best in the 2A classification.
Both teams came in with something to prove. For ICA, this would be their 3rd state finals appearance in 4 years with the first two contests relegating them as the runner-up. As for OCP, they looked to become undefeated Back To Back Champions & extend their winning streak to 47 which began on January 7, 2020.
The first quarter remained close as both teams looked to feel each other out & find their own rhythm. OCP closed the quarter up 12-11. The second quarter provided a little more overall tempo as OCP stepped up their defensive pressure. Progressively throughout the quarter, OCP asserted themselves on both ends of the court with them leading 28-21 at the end of the half.
OCP started the second half off right where they left off in the first. Their full court press & half court defense ultimately proved to be too much for ICA to effectively handle resulting in costly turnovers. OCP efficiently took advantage of the ICA struggles & steadily pulled away for the remainder of the contest.
The win gave OCP their first undefeated season in school history, 27-0, and their ninth state title.
The loss for ICA closes out season with record of 20-9.
