Liberty holds off Tehachapi for 58-51 win, girls basketball section title

FRESNO — It was never going to be easy for either Liberty or Tehachapi to win its first Central Section girls basketball title Friday night. So when the Patriots opened the second half on an 11-4 run, holding the Warriors scoreless for minutes at a time, and went up by a 14-point margin, it seemed almost too good to be true.

Indeed, Tehachapi had one last run left. Koree Rodden drained a stepback 3-pointer to close the third quarter, Riley Walden provided nine quick points early in the fourth and Kennedy Perkins added a 3 of her own to cut the lead to 52-49 with just under three minutes left.
