Behind a first-quarter scoring outburst that saw them put 34 points on the board, the St. Paul Flyers defeated Danbury, 84-35, to win the Division IV Sectional Semifinal last week at Norwalk High School.
In the first quarter, St. Paul shot 15-of-18, including 4-of-6 from the three-point line to build a 34-10 lead that was pushed to 49-20 at the half.
The Flyers, who had 12 players score, were led by Brian Griffin, who had a game-high 22 points.
With the win, St. Paul, which tied for second in the Firelands Conference this year, improves to 18-6 while the Lakers finish the year at 1-22.
Danbury, which returns seven letter winners to next year’s team, got a game-high nine points from senior Chance Mackall.
