Munson, East St. Louis Slam Centralia
MASCOUTAH -- Tony Young was known as the Minister of Defense in his days at SIU. It's no surprise Young's East St. Louis Flyers used a stifling defense when it mattered to eliminate Centralia 64-46 at the Mascoutah 3A Sectional Wednesday night.
The Orphans were within five early in the fourth, but the Flyers scored 23 of the game's final 33 points to earn a shot at Cahokia in Friday night's sectional championship game.
East St. Louis improves to 22-7. Centralia finished 21-9.
