River fends off Monroe Central
Monroe Central wasn’t supposed to make a game of it Tuesday, Feb. 27 when it visited the state-ranked River Pilots for the Division IV sectional opener.
The Pilots were 21-1. They had already beaten the Seminoles twice during the regular season.
There was no reason why River shouldn’t coast into the sectional final.
But that’s why they play the game.
The Seminoles defied everyone’s expectations and kept the game close into the third quarter.
