Raiders Roll To Super-Sectional Title

Jordan Explodes For 23

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Central A&M girls basketball is headed back to State after dismissing Goreville in the Salem 1A Super-Sectional on Monday, 67-41.

Central A & M advanced to the state tournament with a 27-5 record. Leading the Raiders was Taylor Jordan with 23 points, Ryan Dooley with 15 and 5 rebounds and Mikah Maples with 12 points. Abigail Hilton led both teams with 13 rebounds.

The Goreville Blackcats were led by Ashlyn Darnell with 14 points, Gracie Snell had 10 points and 7 rebounds.

It was a blitz from the opening tip, thanks to junior Taylor Jordan. Jordan was a super sophomore last year. Despite not having any seniors, Jordan, who made 62 triples (36%) this season, didn't have to carry the load for the 27-5 Raiders. She had sophomore help.

Ryan Dooley led the team in scoring with 509 points, followed by Jordan with 396 and Mikah Maples and junior Kaley Hennings with 294 and 295 points, respectively.  

Jordan had a few games where she exploded offensively, but the cat-quick sophmore point guard, Dooley, was a juggernaut and sophomore Mika Maples was tough as nails inside.

Jordan led the team in scoring in just ten games, but eight of them were after Christmas. Two were during the conference tourney and two during regionals. Her highest scoring game was 24 points. She averaged 18.9 points when she led in scoring, 12.4 for the season.

Dooley led A&M in scoring in 16 games. She averaged almost 16 points per game.

On Monday, Jordan exploded for 23 points, 10 in the 1st period. She nailed two 3s and a deuce and made both her free throws, outscoring Goreville by herself in the first 8:00.

Maples scored twice and Dooley and Morgan Damery once. Goreville was reeling and had just three scores, two treys and a two, trailing 18-8.

A&M deepened the cut in the 2nd quarter with a 15-10 run. Jordan buried her 3rd triple of the half and made another two. Maples led A&M with three buckets in the 2nd. Dooley and Kaley Hennings each scored once.
