Eielson Boys drop 64-62 heartbreaker in State Semi-finals

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Our lone interior team still competing in the main bracket was the Eielson Ravens, who advanced after their 60-36 win over Nome in round one.
The Ravens had a tough task this afternoon in the form of the #1 seeded Anchorage Christian Lions.
This one was a thriller that came down to the very last shot, but Anchorage Christian survived for a 64-62 victory.
ACS held a 10 point lead at halftime but the Ravens were able to rally and forced a tie in the final three minutes.
It was tied at 62 with 10 seconds left, but ACS took the lead for good with only 3.4 ticks left on the clock.
Demarcus Hall-Scriven led the Lions with 19 points while Christian Bolton finished with 17 for the Ravens.
Two more Eielson Players finished with double digits, Brock Renson had 15 and DeAndre Ford finished with 10.
ACS will now play either Grace or Valdez in the championship game, while Eielson will meet the losing team in a contest for third place.
The 3A State Championship game is set for Saturday at 3pm while the third place game will be at 8:30am tomorrow.
