The # 3 seeded Luxemburg-Casco Spartans shot down the #1 seeded Denmark Vikings Saturday night 87-68 in a Division 2 regional final.
The Spartans came out on fire as they hit seven three-pointers to start out the game and take a 21-14 lead. Despite Denmark’s 6’10” junior Donovan Short being virtually unstoppable in the first half by scoring 24 points, Luxemburg-Casco pushed the lead to nine points at halftime with a 44-35 advantage.
Denmark did cut the lead to six points early in the second half, but a relentless defense led by Lucas Cannon, frustrated Short who eventually fouled out after scoring 43 points. Able to keep a double-digit lead for the rest of the game, the Spartans walked away with their fourth-ever regional championship in amazingly easy fashion.
The Spartans hit 11 three-pointers in the first half and ended up with 16 for the game. Senior Ryan Robillard led the way with five treys and 24 points. Peyton Mrotek added 20 points and Evan Dahlke came off the bench to score 12 by hitting four big three-pointers.
Luxemburg-Casco will now wait for the reseeding on Sunday to determine who they will play Thursday in a sectional semi-final. Matt Piesler and Paul Schmitt will have the call Thursday night starting at 6:30p.m. with the pregame show and game time set for 7:00p.m. on 96.7FM WBDK.
