CLASS 3—-Centralia was able to secure a football and boys basketball title in the same school year with a 41-32 win over Maryville in the finals Friday afternoon. Defense proved to be the theme early on as Maryville took a 15-14 lead after two quarters, but Centralia’s defense won out. They held the Spoofhounds to 36.3 percent shooting on the game and never allowed more than ten points in any single quarter. Chad Thall had nine points and 12 rebounds and Grant Rosenfelder led the Panthers in scoring with 12. Centralia out-rebounded Maryville 41-32. They finished 29-2, while Maryville went 25-7……..CLASS 2—- Van-Far won its games with offense, while Marionville did it with defense. By looking at the 46-40 score, one might assume that Marionville was able to snag the state title. One would be incorrect. The Indians played the Comets game and came out on top, winning the state title. Mike Smith had 17 points and nine rebounds, while teammate Chad Reading had 13 points and nine boards. Nick Smart of Marionville led all scorers with 19. It was close all the way through, with no more than one point separating the two teams at the end of any period but the fourth. Van-Far was able to end the season with an amazing 27-game winning streak……CLASS 1—–There was no stopping Bell City. To be more specific, there was no stopping Dominitrix Johnson. He scored St. Elizabeth for 40 points as the Cubs came away with a 74-62 win in the Class 1 final. Johnson was 15-of-25 from the floor, hitting 3-of-6 three pointers. He also added nine rebounds and two assists. But it wasn’t just a one-man show, as Bell City shot 54.7 percent for the game. Bell City was 29-4, while St. Elizabeth finished 22-9.
