CLASS A BORDEN SECTIONAL: Host Braves, Lanesville advance at Borden Sectional

Borden will face New Wash, CAI gets Lanesville in Friday’s semifinals

BORDEN — Rock Creek started off strong but couldn’t finish, and Borden did what it does best in the opening rounds of the Class A Borden Sectional on Tuesday night.

Lanesville used a second-half run to put away the Lions 75-64 in game one, while the host Braves played like champions in a 64-38 win over South Central in the nightcap.

With the win, 10th-ranked Borden earns a Friday night date with New Washington in the 7:30 p.m. semifinal. Lanesville and Christian Academy will open things up at 6.

 

ROCK CREEK-LANESVILLE

Despite an aggressive and impressive first half, Rock Creek couldn’t hold off Lanesville in Tuesday night’s opener and fell 75-64.

The Lions all but dominated the paint and crushed the boards for the first 13 minutes of the game, and took advantage of an Eagles’ cold spell to grab a 15-point lead a little over three minutes into the second half.

After that, though, Rock Creek was just treading water. Lanesville (13-8) warmed up and finished the half with a 17-2 run to tie things at 35-35 for the break.

“It’s been that way all year,” said Rock Creek coach Chris Brown. “Very, very seldom have we been able to put four quarters together.”

The Lions did open the second half with a two-minute 8-2 run — during which sophomore Will Brown scored six of his team-best 18 points — then saw their final lead of the game at 45-41 before the Eagles closed out the quarter with a 12-5 run of their own.

“Our effort was there, but we just didn’t execute down the stretch,” said Miller.

Lanesville senior forward Justin Miller, who was fairly quiet in the beginning, finished the game with 21 points and 10 rebounds.

“It’s very disappointing, but we’re so young that most of the time we have three or four sophomores out there,” said Brown, who loses two seniors — Joe Logsdon and Isaiah Pearson, neither of whom scored on Tuesday night — off this season’s 8-15 team. “My hat’s off to our seniors. We played a really tough schedule this year.”
