Central boys smother A-B before 2,500

(Continued)

Evan Sheehan and Andrew Ouellette did their thing off the bench, injecting 13 points to the cause.

Now 23-1, the Raiders stand three wins from a state title. The task won't come easily. The Prep, which wore down a Ryan Woumn-less Lynn English squad, 79-78, last night, pushed the Raiders to the brink on Central's home floor just two weeks ago, ultimately falling in a classic, 65-61.

"Our goal is not to get to the Garden, our goal is to keep it rolling," said Nault. "We have a tough, tough matchup and (the Prep's Pat Connaughton) is an absolute handful. We'll have to make adjustments as to how we play him. What we did last time was not effective. Friday night, we have our hands full."
