  • It wasn't until the St. Mary's boys basketball team was finally caught up that it was able to put Rogue River in its rearview mirror for good in Friday's Southern Cascade Hybrid matchup.
    Chasing its first lead since early in the second quarter, the Chieftains grabbed a brief one-point advantage with about two minutes remaining before the Crusaders answered by closing the game on a 10-2 run to score a 51-44 victory at St. Mary's High School.
    "After they hit a couple of shots and hit some free throws, we went kinda dry," said Rogue River coach Ron Haynes on the offense following his squad's short-lived lead.
    With around two minutes left, Danny Perston hit a shot to give the Chieftains a 42-41 lead but Kade Benton made a shot on St. Mary's ensuing possession and Sam Hough's bucket made it back-to-back scores for the Crusaders.
    St. Mary's then extended its lead with free throws down the stretch once Rogue River was forced to foul.
    Benton and Connor Vinyard scored 14 points apiece for the Crusaders (13-4, 4-1 SCH), and Hough added 12.
    Rogue River's Connor Strickland had nine points and 11 rebounds and took on the tough assignment of guarding Vinyard in the post.
    Perston finished with 12 points and six rebounds, Jordan Ehrhardt added 10 points and Chris Campbell logged seven points, six boards and five assists for the Chieftains (12-7, 1-4).
