Breese Mater Dei Comes From Behind to Beat Centralia, 45-42

The Breese Mater Dei Knights came from behind to beat the Centralia Orphans 45 to 42 Saturday night.  The game went down to the final second, when Jerod Simmons-Young missed a three pointer that would have tied the contest.  The Knights were down ten points in the opening minutes of the third period before going on a rally that eventually put them in the lead for good at 37-34 with just under four minutes of the game remaining.  Simmons-Young led the Orphans with ten points.  

The loss gave the Orphans a split for the weekend, as they beat Marion 69-61.   Simmons-Young had a career high 25 points in that game.  The Orphans are now 17-7.   The win improved the Knights to 15-11.
