A&M Takes 4th Straight Title

Central A&M girls closed in on their 4th straight Macon County Championship by bucking the Broncos on Friday, 71-47, then icing Maroa in the title game, 53-48.

Central A&M’s press kept hammering away until they wore the Cerro Gordo-Bement Broncos down. After running them to ground they fed on their carcass. They took the upper hand in the 1st, leading by six points, 20-14. The margin grew in the 2nd to 18 points with the help of a 20-8 run for a 40-22 lead.

The Raiders pulled in their horns a bit in the 3rd and the Broncos slid back into the saddle. The Raiders still went up by 24 points heading into the 4th, 56-32. Down the stretch, the best the Broncos could do was match the Raiders, 15-15, sending the Raiders to the Macon County title game.

Kaley Hennings led A&M with 17 points, scoring seven times from the floor, including a a trey and 2-of-3 at the line. Ryan Dooley was almost as ravenous, scoring six times from the floor and making 3-of-5 from the floor.

MIkah Maples was the third Raider in double figures, scoring 10 points, and two more players almost made double-digits. Taylor Jordan and Kayla Gibson scored nine points. Gibson had a trey hat trick and Jordan had one trey and was 2-of-2 at the stripe. Cerro Gordo-Bement also had three players in double figures, but not much else.
