Monarchs push St. Patrick's to the brink in title game

The Saint Mary Academy 8A Boys team took St. Patrick's to the brink Sunday evening, but fell to the Celtics, 35-34, to finish the season CSAA Runners-up. After an early lead, SMA fought from behind most of the game, but cut a five-point deficit with under 1:00 to play just one with seconds remaining.

Adam Boone and Jaxon Panariello led the scoring for the Monarchs with 12 and 11 points, respectively. Boone was five-for-seven from the field with a pair of three-pointers. Panariello was four-of-10 from the floor, hit his only free-throw and hit a pair of threes as well.

Elijah Creech scored four of his six points in the second-half comeback stretch. He also had four rebounds, three steals and two blocks. Nick Stahlman went for five points, four rebounds and a steal as well. 

St. Patrick hit its perimeter shots, including several three-pointers to edge out SMA.
