The rematch storyline is too good to ignore, but last year’s game won’t have much effect on this year’s contest. If anything, it should only make the game that much closer, as both teams have experienced the thrill of walking down the tunnel before. I certainly expect nothing less than a contest that goes down to the wire.
Pasquerilla West’s triple option is extremely well-executed, and as every Notre Dame fan knows all too well, that can make for an offensive explosion. On the other side, Kayla Bishop is a dynamo for the Duck attack. If the Purple Weasels can contain her, they’ll be well on their way to exacting revenge for last year. As I see it, though, she’s just too evasive for that to happen. Different season, same result.
FINAL���SCORE:���Howard 27, Pasquerilla West 21

This game has all the makings of an epic showdown. First of all, you have the rematch aspect. No matter who you talk to from either dorm, the players all agree that there is some bad blood between these two teams that dates back to last year. Second, these were clearly the best two teams in women’s interhall all season. Howard breezed through the playoffs, while Pasquerilla West has demonstrated a penchant for late-game defensive stands against upstart teams like Lewis and McGlinn.
The one thing that sticks in my mind from last year is the way that the Pasquerilla West players reacted with such devastation after they lost in the Stadium last year. I just can’t imagine that Bigi and the rest of the Weasels’ senior leaders will let it happen again. Pasquerilla West wins in a classic.
FINAL���SCORE:���Pasquerilla West 21, Howard 20
