CARL RUSSO PHOTOS: The moment was certainly not lost on the Andover girls basketball team.“Everybody wants to play at the (TD) Garden. The opportunity that we got to play here was unbelievable,” said junior Tatum Shaw. “I mean, it’s once in a lifetime,” chimed in freshman teammate Anna Foley. “It’s unreal.
”But make no mistake, when the Warriors pulled up to 100 Legends Way in Boston Tuesday evening, they knew that there was a job to be done.
They came with a purpose.
And after the final buzzer sounded, the Warriors were able to storm the TD Garden parquet in triumph after taking down South champion Bridgewater-Raynham, 52-44, in Tuesday’s Division 1 state semifinal. With the win, the North champion Warriors (19-6) advance to Saturday’s state championship, where they’ll play Central champion and undefeated Franklin (24-0) at a time and place that has yet to be announced.
It’ll be Andover’s first state title appearance since winning it all in 2012.
