Early 3-point shooting and tough defense in the second half lifted Archbold to a 48-24 Division III regional championship victory over Marion Local at Savage Arena.
The Blue Streaks led 9-3 by the midway point of the first quarter after Rigo Ramos made two 3-pointers and Bryce Williams added one too.
Williams made another first-half 3-pointer and Kaiden Bedsole splashed one from beyond the arc as Archbold finished the first half 5-of-12 from deep to lead 20-10 at halftime.
A defensive stand in the third quarter allowed the Blue Streaks to extend its lead in the third quarter to 30-13.
Offensively Williams and Bedsole led the way with four points each in the quarter for Archbold. Defensively four steals and two blocks, both from Williams, helped limit the Flyers to only three Marion Local points.
Mitchell led the way for Archbold with 20 points.
