Raiders Roll To Super-Sectional Title

Jordan Explodes For 23

(Continued)

SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

Goreville only had three baskets in the 2nd, but got to the line, making 4-of-7 and trailed by 15 at the break, 33-18.

A&M had scored from the floor 14 times and Goreville just six.

The 3rd period gave Gorevill some hope, as they almost matched the Raiders, 15-14. Their leading scorer, Darnell, scored two twos and a trey. The other Darnell had a 3-point play and Snell had a deuce and two free throws.

Jordan had another trey and a deuce in the 3rd, Dooley scored twice, while Hennings, Maples, and Damery had solo twos. A&M led by 16 heading into crunch time, 48-32.

Goreville would have to summon an heroic comeback. It didn't happen. A&M smelled blood and ran off a furious 19-9 run.

Jordan sank her fifth 3-pointer of the game. Hennings got to the line, making 3-of-6 shots, Dooley had a deuce and a trey and 3-point specialist Kayla Gibson connected on a pair of bombs from downtown.

Ashlyn darnell only made 1-of-2 free throws in the 4th. The other Darnell had two buckets and two free throws, while Snell had just one bucket.

It was another bitter pill for Goreville to swallow. They have now lost in the super-sectional to a team from Central Illinois each of the last four years. 

Goreville lost to CHBC (Cowden-herrick/Beecher City) in 2013 and 2012. They lost to Hume Shiloh (which eliminated CHBC) in 2011. In 2010, Goreville lost to Cobden in the sectional, before Cobden lost to CHBC in the super-sectional. Now, A&M has eliminated Goreville in the super-sectional to deny them a trip to state, again.

Central A&M plays Friday at the state tournament at 12:15 against Carrollton. The loser plays Saturday at 12:15 and the winner plays for the state title at 2 p.m.
