Class C State Qualifier:
CG Finney 92 Lyons 88
It was an offensive explosion at Newark High School Monday night.
The Falcons led by four at halftime before pushing their lead to the max at eleven late in the third quarter.
The Lions roared back with a 9-0 run to pull within one early in the fourth quarter.
Instead of slowing the pace down, Finney kept their foot on the gas and kept shooting.
Despite Lyons having the momentum with fives minutes to play, the Falcons never gave up the lead.
The combo of Markus Robinson and Keegan Ocorr put the game out of reach down the stretch.
Justice Smith scored a game-high 41 points for Lyons.
Ocorr scored a team-high 36 points for Finney and Robinson added 29.
Robinson, Ocorr and Caleb Anger combined for 89 of the Falcons’ 92 points
Finney will play Cal-Mum Wednesday at the Blue Cross Arena in the Far West Regional Qualifier.
