Aplington-Parkersburg falls to Treynor in 2A State Semifinals

Posted: Updated:

Treynor withstood a furious comeback attempt from Aplington-Parkersburg to advance back to the Class 2A championship, winning Wednesday night’s semifinal at Wells Fargo Arena, 75-66. The 2015 champs poured in 50 points in the second and third quarters, using the final frame to hold on for the third title game berth in program history.

Aplington-Parkersburg (24-2) led 15-10 after the first quarter, but was scorched by the Cardinals’ hot outside shooting. Junior Carter Cuvelier led the rally with 26 second-half points, getting the Falcons as close as three points in the final three minutes. Cuvelier finished with a game-high 30 points.

Treynor had three scorers in double-digits on a night when it hit a dozen 3-pointers, including six in the second quarter alone. Dillon Faubel led the charge with 21 points, and Jack Stogdill added 20 of his own. Luke Clausen paced the Cardinals (26-0) on the glass and ended with 14 points and eight rebounds.

Treynor had appeared in five semifinals before going all the way to the top in 2015 with coach Scott Rucker. His squad is back and balanced again, and will meet the winner of Cascade vs. Sheldon in Wednesday night’s last matchup. The 2A title game is set for a 3:45 p.m. tipoff on Friday.

Aplington-Parkersburg will appear in the consolation game for the third time in program history on Thursday at 12:15 p.m.
