Perry Central wins first sectional in 16 years; regional game time set | Sports & Recreation
For the first time since 1997, the Perry Central Commodores are sectional champs. Rallying from a seven-point halftime deficit Saturday night, Perry Central knocked off Mater Dei 56-54 at Huntingburg to advance in the IHSAA Class 2A tournament.
Perry Central held Mater Dei to 31.6 percent field-goal shooting in the second half to come away with the win.
It's just the third boys basketball sectional title in Perry Central’s 51-year history. Their last trip to regionals came when current coach Matt Carter was a player on the team.
Perry Central will meet Switzerland County (17-4) at Huntingburg Saturday at 11 a.m. Eastern time in the regional. The winner will play either Linton Stockton (20-3) or Clarksville (17-5) in Saturday night's championship.
