EDINBORO, Pa. – An 11-0 run over the third and fourth quarters put Iroquois in front for good and sent the Braves to a 54-41 win over Eisenhower in their District 10 Class 2A semifinal.

See the highlights:

The game was back-and-forth throughout, with neither team leading by more than six until Iroquois grabbed an 8-point advantage as part of the run.
Iroquois’ defense made the difference in the second half with transition buckets, including multiple dunks, off steals, and Kellen Burroughs, the 6’6” sophomore, coming up with some big blocks.

“We were playing slow in the first half,” Iroquois’ Roman Caporale said in the Cole Orthodontic Associates player interview. “Once we started picking up our intensity, and we knew they were throwing soft passes to each other, we just got to be more aggressive.”


“Being in help defense and just being able to see the man driving helped a lot with the blocks,” Burroughs added.

Eisenhower held a 2-point advantage, 13-11, at the end of the first quarter, and the Knights led 20-19 at the half. Despite double the trips to the free throw line in the first half, Eisenhower wasn’t able to take advantage of the opportunity, going 1-8 from the line in the half, and just 4-15 for the game.

Iroquois was able to convert from the line in the second half, going 8-11 in the second half.


Burroughs led all scorers with 18 points. Caporale scored nine of his 13 points in the fourth quarter, and Orlando Brown was also in double figures with 11 points.

Austin Hanson led the Knights with 15 points. Gavin Lindemuth added 11 points and Kyler Black finished with 10 points.
