3A Quarterfinals: STA Wins After 2nd Half Slump

By Ryan Phelps
Target Center - Minneapolis, MN

St. Thomas Academy and Winona looked like a great matchup to start.  The two exchanged blows like heavyweight fighters through the first half to a 19-19 tie.  But then at the break, something happened.
 
St. Thomas Academy came out hot, Winona never really came back out.  The Cadets ran away with a 52-24 win in the Class 3A Quarterfinals Wednesday at Target Center.
 
The Winhawks' shooting was a key factor in their demise.  They cooled from 35.3% in the first to 16.7% in the second half and STA went the other way.  They improved from 27.6% in the first to 54.5% in the second, led by 15 points from Nate Birr.
 
The Cadets move on to Thursday's semifinals where they will face Rocori; a team they know well.  STA knocked Rocori out of last year's quarterfinals with a 57-51 overtime win.  Tipoff is at noon.
