The bigger the challenge the better for West Aurora. Two days ago after knocking off No. 1 seed Oswego in the semifinals of the Class 4A Bolingbrook sectional, senior forward Spencer Thomas, in looking ahead to the sectional championship game, said "hopefully we get Benet." That's Benet as in the team that blew out West Aurora earlier this season at Batavia's Night of Hoops. The Blackhawks did indeed get the Redwings, and Thomas and his mates got their revenge Friday night with a 42-38 slugfest of a victory in front of a third straight packed house at Bolingbrook this week at a sectional that lived up to the hype of the second-best in the state.
