Orphans Head to Fifth Place Semis After Loss

What started as a low-scoring affair in Centralia ended with

the Orphans on the losing side of a 39-30 final score, dropping into the

fifth-place semifinals as the Jacksonville Crimsons advance to the semifinals

of the 70th Annual Centralia Holiday Tournament.

Both teams struggled offensively in the first half, and when

they went to the locker room, Centralia and Jacksonville were tied 10-10 and

both shot under 30%. The Crimsons pulled away in the third quarter and kept the

Orphans at bay with a 17-point fourth quarter effort, all but two of those

points coming from the free throw line.

Josh Peak led all scorers with 17 points and went 13-of-14

from the foul line. Dalton Keene put in a double-double performance with ten

points and thirteen rebounds.

Chase Alcorn was the only Centralia player in double

figures, as the junior had ten points.

With the loss, the Orphans return to action at 8:30 and will

face McCluer North in an elimination game. If victorious, Centralia will face

the winner of Effingham/Oak Lawn Richards for fifth place at 4:30.
