Both teams came out with great energy from the start. Sartell had great looks and took great shots the entire first half, they just weren’t falling. Rocori was able to convert and hit on a high percentage of their shots, which resulted in a 30-18 halftime lead. In the second half, the Sabres were able to change up and execute some different defensive looks to make Rocori uncomfortable enough to have some turnovers. Sartell kept executing well on the offensive end, and kept taking high quality shots. Those shots eventually started to fall, and that double digit deficit, vanished with only minutes left in the game. Sartell got the lead with a little over a minute left in the game, Rocori was able to get an offensive put back to tie the game again. Sartell had the ball with about 1 minute left and a tie game. Sartell was able to wind the clock all the way down and attack the basket and finish a strong layup to take the lead. Rocori called a timeout with .5 seconds left in the game. Sartell played great prevent defense and got a turnover to close out the nice comeback victory. The Sabres take on the Tigers of St. Cloud Tech High School on Tuesday night at home.
