Winning four of their last five games, Taft headed into its final regular season game on February 7th needing a win to possibly secure a playoff seed.
An early 12-12 tie against fellow Bronx A West division rival Walton and a 21-point fourth quarter by the Golden Eagles was wasted as four Walton players scored in double figures taking the game 63-60, pushing Taft out of the playoff picture.
Taft finishes its season 7-8 ,while 13-2 Walton hosts the opening round of the playoffs against Holcombe L. Rucker School of Community Research.
