Against long time rival Havana and in a packed house with an absolutely raucous fan base and awesome atmosphere, the Raiders battled some early foul trouble to overcome a late deficit with a 30-28 victory over the Ducks to advance to the Regional Championship! Tied 9-9 at halftime. Malachi Carroll had two big threes coming out of the half to give the Raiders a 20-16 lead entering the fourth. In the fourth the Ducks fought and clawed their way back to a 26-25 lead when Zayne Arthalony dropped in a HUGE 3 pointer with 39.7 seconds left to give the Raiders a 28-26 lead! JJ Proehl then came up with a huge steal and two clutch free throws with 26 seconds left to give the Raiders the cushion they needed to survive and advance! Ryan Terrill and Malachi Carroll both had big games, banking 12 points and 11 points for the Raiders! With their 17th win of the season, the second seeded Raiders look to defend their home turf against top seeded Delavan with the help of another amazing crowd, so come out and support your Raiders tonight at the Middle School at 6:00 PM! #MCRaiderNation
