The Bolingbrook boy’s basketball team is on its way to playing for its second trophy in an already impressive season. The Raiders defeated West Aurora on Tuesday night 85-66. The top-ranked team in the area already captured the Regional title against Lemont last week.

It was again a close game at first with Bolingbrook only leading 28-27 at halftime, but responded with a huge 33-point third quarter to take control of the game. The Raiders will play the winner of Wednesday night’s game between Joliet West and Joliet Central on Friday for the Sectional Final at Lincoln-Way East at 7 p.m.
