After trailing at the end of the first two quarters of play, Riverside charged forward in the second half to earn themselves a spot in the D2 state championship game.
The Chargers picked up a 66-59 victory over Mullen on Friday night to advance. The team trailed by one at the end of the first and second quarters of play, but took control of the game in the third.
Coming into the game our goal was to win each quarter, which obviously we didn't do in the first half," Coach Joe Imus said. "Our new goal became to just win the game."
"They started keying in on (Tredyn) Prososki, and rightfully so, he's probably one of the best scorers in the state, all classes, as just a sophomore," the coach said. "But we have lots of other players who can step up for us and they did."
Prososki led the team with 22 points, followed by Joseph Bloom with 19, Michael Bernt and Trey Carraher 7 each, Riley Swerczek 6 and Ty Martinsen 5.
The #2 Chargers will face #1 Falls City Sacred Heart in the D2 championship at 8:30 p.m. Saturday in Pinnacle Bank Arena.
