MADRID - Unbeaten St. Regis Falls showed just why it is 15-0, 11-0 on the NAC East season at Madrid-Waddington on Friday evening in a 57-40.
The Saints showed the combination of teamwork and the ability to close games.
The Saints did just that gaining control of the Jackets (6-6, 5-3 NAC East) in the third quarter where they took a 34-26 lead and went 14-for-14 at the foul line in the fourth to seal the win.
St. Regis Falls is a very good team. Tonight they took us out of our game plan which was to keep them off the foul line. They attacked the basket well and played good defense. We played well at times early and hopefully, we get a chance to earn a third meeting during the playoffs. In that third quarter, we got rattled, said M-W coach Aaron Jones.
