Cardinal size confounds Vikings
Boone Central/Newman Grove dominated the paint, scoring all but of its field goals besides one from inside the arc and pulled away from Lakeview after halftime for a 53-46 Cardinals victory.
With the victory, BC/NG advances to the Class C-1 Sub-District 8 Final on Thursday against Scotus - a 63-46 winner over Twin River in the opening game.
Lakeview and BC/NG had met before - a 55-51 home win for the Cardinals. Similar to that contest in which senior point guard Carter Henry scored a game-high 27, he put together a game-high 24 on Tuesday.
Zach Reicks, a 6-8 center, only had nine but was a constant matchup problem that cleared out driving lanes for his teammates.
Lakeview was led by Cadge Janssen with nine points. The Vikings end the season with an 8-15 record after the loss and say goodbye to seniors Janssen, Cameron Drozd, Jaden Johnson, Alex Pacheco and Cody Schaad.
