Hoops – Independence at Ravenwood

Connor English 

Connor English drove for a layup and knocked down the game-winner for the Ravenwood boys basketball team in traffic on Tuesday.

The Raptors claimed a 56-55 District 11-AAA victory against visiting Page behind English’s bucket in the final seconds.

English finished with 10 points for Ravenwood, which was led in scoring by Rex Gainer’s 24. The Raptors improved to 4-9 overall and 2-4 in District 11-AAA.

Page fell to 9-5, 0-5. The Patriots have held second half leads in every district game this season, but haven’t been able to break through.

Mason Allen drilled a 3-pointer with 15 seconds to play to push the Patriots in front 55-54. Allen closed with 20 points and Thomas Seaman added a dozen. Page led by seven early and held a 27-21 halftime lead before the Raptors gained the lead in a see-saw finish.

Ravenwood will host Brentwood Friday in the first installment of the Battle of the Woods, while Page hosts Spring Hill.
