The Teutopolis Wooden Shoes advanced to the championship game of the Greenville 2A Sectional with a win Tuesday night over the Roxana Shells, 58-42.  The game was heard on 979XFM and www.979xfm.com.

The Shoes methodically put away the Shells, leading 15-10 after one quarter, 25-18 at halftime and 44-32 after three quarters before outscoring Roxana 14-10 in the final stanza.

T-Town won despite shooting 37% from the field, making 19 of 51 including eight of 20 from three-point range.  The Shoes made 12 of 20 from the line, turned the ball over just nine times and grabbed 28 rebounds.

Roxana made 49% of its shots, 18 of 37, but made just three of nine foul shots, turned the ball over a whopping 24 times and pulled down 25 rebounds while making three of seven three-point shots.

The Wooden Shoes featured a balanced attack.  Derek Smith led the way with 14 points, Devin Falbe scored 12 points, and Jared Waldhoff and Kyle Pruemer each scored 10 points.  Also for T-Town: Reed Hardiek five, Cody Will three, and Brett Mette and Rourke Schultz two points each.
