Raiders Reign As Sectional Champs

Central A&M (26-5) fought their way through stiff challenges at the Toledo 1A Sectional, emerging with a win over St. Anthony in the semifinal, 49-31, and surviving a double-overtime championship game over Arcola, 62-57.

St. Anthony forced the Raiders to slow their roll in the sectional semifinal, but the Raiders were still up by double digits at the break, 26-16. The 3rd period was a lull before what St. Anthony wanted to be a 4th period storm to try a come back. The storm never happened, as A&M held serve down the stretch and pulled away for the 18-point win.

Ryan Dooley led A&M with 15 points and Mikah Maples followed with 11 points, a prelude to their role in the upcoming title game. Maples made all five of her free throws. A&M sank seven 3-pointers to St. Anthony’s zero. Dooley had a pair of treys, Kayla Gibson had a pair, and Kaley Hennings had a pair. Taylor Jordan buried one.

St. Anthony held A&M to just nine 2-pointers, but those seven triples were the difference. St. Anthony had just nine 2-pointers, as well and only one more free throw than the Raiders.
