The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans rolled to a 75-50 win over the #2 seeded Panthers in a WIAA Division 2 Regional Semi-final game on Friday night. The Spartans trailed early 9-4 but went on a 19-0 run to take a commanding 23-9 lead halfway through the first half.
Plymouth was frustrated by a 1-3-1 zone trapping defense by Luxemburg-Casco and turned the ball numerous times. The Spartans contained the Panthers' 6’-9” Jeb Nytes who managed only five points all night.
Spartan Ryan Robillard became the second-leading scorer in the history of the boy’s program by hitting a free throw in the first half. Finishing the half strongly, L-C built a 40-22 lead and never were seriously challenged in the second half.
Robillard led the Spartans with a game-high 24 points and five three-pointers. Logan Doell added 17 and Peyton Mrotek finished with ten points, including a resounding dunk in the second half.
Luxemburg-Casco will now travel to Denmark to take on the #1 seeded Vikings in a rematch of NEC rivals on Saturday night. Matt Piesler and Paul Schmitt will have the call starting at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show and game time set for 7:00 p.m. on 96.7FM WBDK.
