ACF boys beat Demons, earn 3A state nod

A.C. Flora made amends for Thursday’s loss to Lugoff-Elgin in the final round of the Region 4-3A boys basketball campaign. The Falcons (7-19) topped the Demons 65-48 Friday in a play-in game at Fairfield Central.

Flora’s reward is a berth in the Class 3A state playoffs that begin on Tuesday.

Kvahn Pennix and Marquise Simuel did the major damage for ACF with 23 and 16 points, respectively. Michael Peliquise had 12 points for L-E, which closed the book on an 11-13 campaign.
