Boylan has taken another step in tournament play with a 51-47 win over Wheaton St. Francis Wednesday night in a 3A Sectional Semifinal game.
The Titans led most of the first half. They led by eight points at halftime. But St. Francis put together a 10-0 run in the second half to take the lead, but the Titans once again found a way to win making key plays when they needed to down the stretch.
Ben Ambrose led a balanced Boylan attack with 14 points.
“This team really just works hard every single day,” said Ambrose. “So when we get to the game we really just grind it out every play, and we find ways to win.”
“Our guys kept coming back to those time outs not rattled, and it’s not an arrogance or cockiness. It’s we’ve been here before,” said Boylan coach Brett McAllister following the win.
