The rematch didn’t go as long but the result was the same as the Blue Jays took the lead for good late in the third period and then drilled 15-of-17 free throws in the fourth period to eliminate the Cardinals 57-45 in the Division IV District semifinals Tuesday night on the Union Bank Court inside the Elida Fieldhouse.
The Blue Jays (18-5) advance to take on St. Henry 7 p.m. Friday in the District finals.
The Jays got a 3-ball from junior Ryan Koester (14 markers on 4 treys) with 13 ticks left in the third canto to take a 36-35 edge into the finale.
“Ryan has really shot well over the last 5-6 games, shooting over 60 percent from beyond the arc. He is a very capable scorer and has finally started to peak over the last part of the season,” St. John’s coach Aaron Elwer said.
