"It was a hopeless feeling when they were shooting those un-guardable shots," said Silver Creek head coach Brandon Hoffman. "We knew eventually they would start to miss them. We talked about keep making them shoot those shots but lets get the rebounds."

The Dragons are 24-3 and can make even more history with one more victory. The team is relishing its first trip to the the title game.

"It's everything. Before the game I had people I have never even heard of calling me and telling me good luck," said Kaufman. "Just to do it for my family, and all these people in the stands, generations and generations haven't been able to do it and I am glad we could do it."
