HAMBURG, Pa. - Math, Civics, and Sciences Charter made short work of Millersburg on Friday in a PIAA Class A quarterfinal at Hamburg High.
The Mighty Elephants steamrolled the District 3 Indians, 92-60. Keith Griffin led the charge with 30 points.
Griffin scored the game's first nine points during a first-quarter spurt that ended with MC&S ahead, 19-0, four minutes into the game.
"We just started off aggressively," he said. "Easy layups, back doors, and everybody was knocking down shots. We didn't know it would be an easy game coming in, but once [the score] got up there, we have young people on the team and we just wanted to get them in."
Samir Doughty and Nasir Groomes finished with 18 points apiece. Nick Jones added 11. Christian Keiter led the Indians with 17 points.
MC&S will meet Constitution in the semifinals Tuesday at a time and location to be determined.
The Mighty Elephants lost to the Generals twice during the regular season, followed by a 66-59 loss in the Public League quarterfinals.
"We could have had them the last time we played them, but they sent a press at us that we weren't ready for," Griffin said. "We have something for that now. We added a press-breaker, so we'll see how that goes."
