Paul VI rallies past DeMatha, will face Gonzaga in WCAC boys’ final

Brandon Slater leads the charge down the stretch in PVI's second win over DeMatha within a week.
Brandon Slater leads the charge down the stretch in PVI's second win over DeMatha within a week.

Paul VI point guard Aaron Thompson blended three moves into one, then banked a layup off the backboard. One possession later, he slipped a pass to teammate Jeremy Roach for a basket.

The four quick points helped erase a 12-point, second-half deficit against DeMatha in a Washington Catholic Athletic Conference semifinal Sunday at American University's Bender Arena as the No. 4 Panthers rallied for a 59-55 victory.

Paul VI will face No. 5 Gonzaga at 8 p.m. Monday back in Tenleytown for the league title game.

In three meetings with No. 6 DeMatha this season, Paul VI played with the same blueprint: control the Stags' momentum in the first half and pummel them with layups at a breakneck speed in the second half — the kind of action that turns defense to offense and back again.
