Islanders continue to be thorn in Huskies’ side

DeLaSalle made it four straight years of knocking St. Anthony Village out of the section playoffs with a 90-73 victory in the Section 3AAA semifinals on March 5. The defending state champion Islanders went on to defeat Park Center in the section final to keep alive their hopes of a repeat.

DeLaSalle jumped on St. Anthony quickly and ran out to an 11-2 lead before the Huskies recovered and tied it at 16. The Islanders took over again and opened up a double-digit lead later in the first half. St. Anthony got back within four points before DeLaSalle finally took over for good.

The Islanders led by as many as 24 in the second half.
