Big fourth quarter propels Archers past Raiders

By STEVE MAJOR

ANTWERP – As coaches are fond of saying, “Throw the records out when it comes to a rivalry game.” And that was the case last Friday night when Wayne Trace gave Antwerp all it could handle on its home court for three plus quarters before the Archers prevailed in the final stanza to win 58-49.

Coming into the game at 8-5 and 3-1 in the GMC, the Archers looked to be the better team on paper over the Raiders (4-9, 1-3). But, it was Wayne Trace who led, 35-32 when the Raiders’ Gage Critten scored the first point of the fourth on free throw. From that point on though, it was all Archers as Antwerp busted the game open by scoring 26-fourth quarter points while the Raiders could only manage 14 more.
