To Holy Angels to see the Stars take on St. Agnes in a cross-division game in the Tri-Metro. St. Agnes coach Chris Hopkins sporting the restaurant quality bow tie for games this month. Take that Ken Rosenthal even if you are my height. Extra big all beef hot dog is a major plus but it was on a regular bun which lowers the grade.

Strong start for St. Agnes with a Darius Lopez triple and hoop. Gary Smith also with 2 hoops before he sits with 2 fouls. 9-3 Aggies at 13:33. Its 15-10 St. Agnes just after the midpoint of the 1st half. Holy Angels forward Sam Boehne picks it up to spark an 18-2 run. 2 offensive boards for 2 free throws, a jump hook from the right block and coast to coast for 2 more as he scores the 1st 6 of the run. He adds another bucket and a triple in the run as Holy Angels takes a 28-17 lead with 2:40 left. But St. Agnes rallies with the last 8 points of the half thanks to 5 from Gary Smith before his 3rd foul. 28-25 Holy Angels at the break.
Sam Boehne drives and scores on the 1st possession of the 2nd half and that puts him over 1000 career points for Holy Angels. Boehne and Smith trade 2 more hoops as Holy Angels stays on top 44-37 with 9:30 to play. Brandon Plasch with a putback and a free throw and St. Agnes has the lead down to 44-41 with 7 left. Then Darius Lopez has to sit with his 4th foul. Boehne with 2 free throws and a kick out of the post for a clutch 3. Ryan Mazurek hits a big 3 with 4:50 left right after Lopez returned. The lead is back to 52-43 and St. Agnes doesn't threaten again. Holy Angels wins 58-47.
St. Agnes falls to 5-5 overall, 0-2 in the Tri-Metro, with the loss. Gary Smith with 13 of his 24 in the 2nd half as he tried to carry the Aggies offense. But he was on the bench down the stretch. 6 other Aggies in the scorebook but the highest was Darius Lopez with 7. Too many bad possessions late. They'll host Fridley and Heritage Academy (not to be confused with Heritage Christian) in back to back games Friday and Saturday.
Holy Angels improves to 2-8 with the win. They are 1-0 in the Tri-Metro. Sam Boehne with 13 of his 23 in the 1st half before passing 1000 career points in the 2nd half. No answer for him on the right block. 8 other Stars on the scoresheet but none reach double figures. Abraham Sanchez and Max Gerstner with 2 3s each for 8 points. Stars shoot only 13-30 at the charity stripe including 4-14 in the 2nd half. But St. Agnes couldn't take advantage of the misses down the stretch. The Stars are at St. Anthony on Friday before hosting the rivalry game with Richfield on Saturday. Then its a brutal stretch of the schedule with Columbia Heights, at De La Salle and at Brooklyn Center to follow that.
