Adams Central was good from long range all night long and the scoreboard was proof. 

The Patriots repeated as Central Conference champs with a 53-38 win over Aurora Saturday night.

Aurora trailed 21-13 at the half before getting that down to 26-21.

 From there, though, Adams Central used a 9-0 run to end the third and lead 39-24 on its way to victory.
