Chagrin Falls held off visiting Ravenna in a Division II sectional semifinal on Tuesday, 74-59.
With the win, the Tigers advanced to Friday’s sectional championship game at Streetsboro.
“Our offense tonight was very good in the first half,” Chagrin Falls coach Dave Bargar said. “I thought we moved the ball extremely well and found the open man in the first half. We became a little complacent in the second half, which allowed Ravenna to gain a little momentum but we did a better job in the fourth quarter getting back to being more aggressive.”
Tate Yonker led the charge with 25 points. Cam Owen and Jack McMullen both scored 10 points and McMullen also pulled down eight rebounds. Josh Norton contributed to the win with eight points, eight rebounds and six assists.
“Tate was huge tonight,” Bargar said. “We are constantly talking to him about taking his shot and staying aggressive and tonight he did that.”
The Tigers lost at Streetsboro back on Jan. 21, 43-43.
Bargar hopes to see his team play inspired as it tries to avenge that loss with a berth in the district tournament on the line.
“Tournament basketball is all about playing with urgency for four quarters and doing just enough to advance,” he said.
Chagrin Falls improved to 17-6 on the year.
