VIDEO: Highlights and Reactions to Concord's winJoe Cooper led the Raiders of Concord to a 40-34 quarterfinal win over St. Mark's Sunday night.
Both teams played great defense throughout the game but Concord's early shooting was the difference. William Chapman hit a long range 3 pointer to end the half and give Concord a 24-15 lead. He ended the game with 12 points.
The Spartans responded in the third as they went on an 11-1 run behind Nicholas Papa, who ended the game with 12 points and Calvin Scott who added 8 of his own.
But Cooper's game high 19 points would prove to be too much for the Spartans, as he made 8 of his 19 in the final quarter.
Daquan Smallwood of Concord added 4 for his team.
Concord will move on to face Sallies on Thursday at 8pm.
