  • Finishing touch helps Carmel tops Richmond Feb 17, 2012 12:13 AM
    Thursday night’s Class 3A Carmel regional championship between the host Corsairs and visiting Richmond-Burton Rockets could be classified one of two ways, depending on which glasses one chose to look through: Defensive masterpiece, or perhaps, “an offensive struggle” as Carmel coach Kelly Perz said through a smile. Fortunately for Perz, her Corsairs survived 31-29, claiming the program’s first regional championship since 2004.

  • Burlington C. moves into 1st place tie Jan 27, 2012 11:43 PM
    A calmness borne of confidence settled over the Burlington Central boys basketball players prior to their first-place showdown at Richmond-Burton Friday. “The bus was silent for the whole hour,” Central senior Clint Creal said of the trek north. “People were listing to music, doing whatever they do to get pumped. And we were kind of relaxed in the locker room before the game. We knew what we needed to do.” Central’s Rockets believed the defensive skills they sharpened throughout a 10-day layoff between games would help them carve a share of the division lead for themselves. Their confidence was justified. Burlington Central held R-B to 8 points or less in each quarter and 21.6-percent shooting overall (11 of 51) in a 47-26 victory.

  • Richmond denies Burlington share of title Feb 25, 2011 12:27 AM
    Burlington Central’s hopes for a conference title went up in smoke in Richmond Thursday night. Brandon Kinsella scored 25 points as Richmond-Burton downed Central, 61-56, preventing the Burlington Rockets from claiming a share of the Big Northern East crown. The title would have been their first since 2007-08. Instead, Hampshire wins the BN-East outright. Trailing by 9 early in the fourth quarter, Central rallied to get within a point. Ryan Ritchie’s 3-pointer made it 57-56 with 50 seconds to play. After Kinsella made 2 free throws, Burlington had 3 chances to tie, but couldn’t connect. Kinsella then hit 2 more free throws to ice it. “I can’t fault our effort,” said Central coach Brett Porto. “Our execution on the defensive end was poor at times. But the kids battled and fought back. That’s all you can ask for.” Ritchie finished with 15 points to lead Burlington. Ray Hunnicutt added 12, Sam Klein 10, and Thomas Fitzgerald 8 for Central (15-10, 7-2). Klein also grabbed 8 rebounds. Richmond held Klein and Hunnicutt in check early, but Ritchie scored 10 points in the second quarter to keep Central close. Burlington trailed 30-29 at halftime. But Richmond scored the first 10 points of the second half, and Burlington spent the rest of the game digging out of the hole. Central missed 4 field goals and 2 free throws and committed 6 turnovers during that span. Richmond (13-12, 6-4) was just 1 of 7 from the free-throw line through 3 quarters, but made its last 8 in a row down the stretch. While Kinsella made the court his personal field of dreams, no one else reached double figures for Richmond. Matt Rygiel had 8 points and 8 rebounds, giving the R-B Rockets an inside presence. Central got some big contributions off the bench as Jared Moxness had 6 points and Michael Parker had 3 rebounds, 3 steals and a block. Men’s basketball Trinity Christian 97, Judson 80: The Eagles (15-16) saw their season come to an end in the CCAC tournament semifinals in Palos Heights. Jim Kuban had 15 points to lead Judson.
