Wabash - Lewis Cass to play for Rochester sectional title tonight

It looked good through three quarters for Rochester in Saturday’s sectional semifinal. 


The Zebras held a 32-27 lead going into the final eight minutes.  That was when Lewis Cass turned up defensive pressure and dominated the final quarter by a 6-11 margin on the way to a win, 54-43.


The Kings (17-7) were led by shooting Tyson Good’s 17 points. Cass connected on 14-for-19 free throws in the final period.


Cass outscored Rochester 19-7 at the free throw line.


Rochester’s Paul Leasure was held without a field goal and didn’t score until two free throws in the fourth period.  Aidan Smith picked up the slack with a team-high 15 points.


Rochester ended the season with an 11-10 record.


Lewis Cass advanced to Monday’s sectional championship game at Rochester to play Wabash (17-6). In Friday’s other semifinal, the Apaches jumped on Winamac for a 14-3 first quarter lead and cruised to the win, 48-15.


Grant Ford topped Wabash with 11 points.


The winner of Monday’s Rochester 2A sectional championship will advance to the North Judson regional and play the 11th-ranked Bluejays (23-3) on their home floor.
