The final scoreboard read 44-26 in favor of the Knights Friday, as they downed Arcola for their third straight regional crown, but early on, the game was much closer than the final score showed.

It took till 4:09 to go in the second for the Knights to hit their first triple of the night, courtesy of Clayton Honn, but the bomb gave Arthur an 11-10 advantage.

Yes, only 11-10 midway through two quarters, no typo.

The first score of the game came from a single free throw from Riders sophomore Austin Shaffer with just over five to go in the first, and the score was tied at six after a quarter.Login or Subscribe to read the rest of this story.
