Blue Ridge Advances in Regional Action

The Blue Ridge Knights defeated the Hilltoppers of Mt. Pulaski 33-30 in a Regional Quarterfinal game played in Farmer City.  The Knights trailed 22-19 at the half before out scoring the Hilltoppers 2-0 in the third period.  Blue Ridge scored immediately to start the third quarter got the ball back and held the ball until the end of the quarter trying to pull Mt. Pulaski out of their zone.  The game then went back and forth until late in the game Nick Becker hit a 3-point shot to give the Knights the lead for good at 31-30 and the Brady Masengale closed things out with two free throws to win 33-30.  The Knights will play Judah Christian Wednesday night at 6:00
