Marengo ends Aurora Central Catholic's surprise run
Mar 11, 2015 8:33 AM -
It's not often Aurora Central Catholic plays a team that likes the 3-point shot as much as it does, but the Chargers found their match Tuesday night in the Class 3A Rochelle sectional semifinals. Aurora Central fired away like always, draining 11 from beyond the arc led by sophomore Brett Czerak's 5. Marengo did them one better draining 12, sparked by the state's record holder Zach Knobloch whose 30-point night included six 3s and 8-of-9 free throws. Two of Knobloch's 3s came on back-to-back possesions late in the fourth quarter after the Chargers had trimmed a 10-point deficit to 1. That was as close as they got, Marengo winning 76-67 to end Aurora Central Catholic's surprise postseason run.
