The old saying is third times a charm, but for Rosecrans the saying didn’t ring true as they held off a late surge from Malvern to advance to their third straight District final. The Bishops got 23 points from Aaron Parry who was tough inside for the Bishops in the win.

Rosecrans defense also was up to the task holding the Hornets to just 4 of 20 in the first half which put Malvern in a double digit hole at the half. A late techinical foul assesed to Shawn Ball put the Bishops up for good so the Bishops could battle the Hawks for the right to go to the Regional Tournament. Zak Kirkbride had 16 points in the win as well for the Bishops.
