Trojans end Eagles' season
Falcons advance
Adrian 40-29 = 69
RRC 47-39 = 86

After suffering a concussion in Monday's regular-season finale, there was considerable doubt as to whether or not Red Rock Central senior Jeff DeCock would play in the playoffs Saturday.

As it turns out, DeCock was cleared to play and wound up shattering a Red Rock Central single-game scoring record in the process, leading the Falcons to an 86-69 win over Adrian in the Section 3A playoffs Saturday at Worthington.

DeCock went 13-of-17 from the field and 16-of-16 from the line to finish with 42 points, breaking the RRC single-game scoring record of 39 held by Mark Engen.

The Falcons had a hard time putting the 11th-seeded Dragons away. RRC held a seven-point halftime lead in a high-scoring first half. While DeCock had 24 points at halftime, Adrian had drained seven three-pointers to keep things close.

But in the second half, the Falcons began to impose their will on defense. Adrian hit only one more three-pointer in the game and RRC's offense converted on the fast break and against Adrian's 3-2 zone.

Henry Rogotzke nearly finished with a quadruple-double for the Falcons with 18 points, 14 rebounds, 8 assists and 6 blocked shots.

As a team, RRC went 27-of-32 from the free throw line in the game, including 8-of-10 to seal the game in the final two minutes.

WWG 30-27 = 57
RTR 40-41 = 81

Westbrook-Walnut Grove put up a fight but Russell-Tyler-Ruthton had too many weapons Saturday, defeating the Chargers 81-57 in the Section 3A playoffs at Worthington.

The Chargers started the game hot from the field and were able to hang around by hitting four early three-pointers. But RTR eventually wore the Chargers down with a succession of three-pointers of its own late in the first half and early in the second.

The Chargers were able to trim the RTR lead to 41-37 early in the second half before a three-pointer, a conventional three-point play and a driving layup pushed the lead back for the Knights.

RTR had four players in double figures in the win.

Taylor Lindaman paced the Chargers with 12 points. Alex Knutson added 11 and Shane Buchman finished with 10.

Windom 30-30 = 60
Worthington 27-44 = 71

A second-half surge from beyond the arc helped lift Worthington to the lead and ended the Windom Eagles' season with a 71-60 defeat in the Section 3AA playoffs at Worthington.

The Eagles used an 11-0 run in the first half to take an early 13-10 lead. Meanwhile, the Eagle defense was able to slow the Trojans down from the inside and the outside. Windom held a three-point 30-27 lead at halftime.

The Eagles quickly pushed the lead to seven points to start the second half, but Worthington went on a 13-3 run, sparked by a trio of three-pointers. The hot outside shooting continued throughout the second half for the Trojans, who outscored Windom 44-30 over the final 18 minutes of play.

Windom briefly regained the lead when Jacob Johnsno drained a trio of three-pointers in rapid succession halfway through the second half. But Worthington went on an 8-0 run to regain the lead and pulled away late with a three-pointer and an alley-oop dunk.

Collin Lovell led the Eagles with 22 points. Andy Pfeffer added 12. Johnson and Nathan Remmers each added nine in the loss.
