Simley and St. Croix Lutheran played a rematch game in the section semi-finals on Saturday. Simley took the first game and knew this would be a tough game. The Spartans were up as much as 10 points in the first half, but let the lead slip away going into half-time. In the second half St. Croix stepped up their defense and it turned into a battle back and forth. Many times Simley responded with a big shot after St. Croix had scored. A couple big baskets by Tiwaah Danso and 2 freethrows by Ravyn Miles sealed the victory.
Simley held St. Croix’s leading scorer to 3 points. While Simley was lead by Tiwaah Danso, Sydney Runsewe and Ravyn Miles with 19, 15 and 14 points respectively.
Simley is now in the section finals on Thur, Mar 8th at 7:00pm. They will be playing Holy Angels at Bloomington Jefferson HS.
