Knights fall to Maple Grove in the section championship game tonight. After the Knights hit a 3 on the opening possession, the Crimson went on a 20-4 run to build a 13 point lead midway through the first half. The Knights found a little energy and put together a 12-3 run of their own to pull within 4 points. At halftime the Crimson held a 33-27 lead. Like the first half, the Knights scored the first bucket of the second half, but the Crimson quickly answered. With 12:30 remaining in the game, the Knights evened the score at 41. The two teams exchanged baskets before the Crimson went on another run to take a 59-50 lead. The Knights made one final push to close the gap to 4 points (62-58) with 2:35 left, but the Crimson finished the game with 7 unanswered points to win the game 69-58.
The Knights finish the season with a 25-4 record and say goodbye to four amazing seniors who have left their mark on STMA GBB. Thank you, Kae Christian, Haylee Coulson, Jadyn Hanson, and Cecelia Miller, for your hard work, leadership, and the many memories you’ve created. A shout out to our manager extraordinaire, Mia Camp, too! ????????????
