(KNSI) Apollo took down Sauk Rapids 72-53 in a battle that was much closer than the final score.

In a back-and-forth first half, Sauk Rapids led at the half 35-31.

Kobe Lee led the Strom with 20 of their 35 first half points and Chang Hoth led Apollo with 17.

In the second half, Sauk Rapids struggled with foul trouble, missed shots and turnovers.

Sauk Rapids' 3-point-attack vanished and Kobe Lee did not connect from downtown in the second half.

Apollo had as much as a 14 point lead and did a great job of slowing down the pace of play to move to the Section 8-3A final.

Chang Hoth was selected as the All Star Trophy and Awards Player of the Game with 22 points.

Apollo will now face Alexandria on Thursday, March 12th at 7:00 p.m.

Alexandria and Apollo split their two meeting during the regular season but where they play has yet to be decided.
