The Central Red Devils picked up their 12th win of the season with a 56-45 victory over the John Bapst Crusaders Tuesday night at the Cross Insurance Center.

Central was led by Caleb Shaw, who had a game-high 19 points, with 12 coming in the second half of play.  Micah Ward also had 11 for the Red Devils in the contest as Alex Mooney had the top mark for the Crusaders with 19 points, including three from beyond the arc.

The Red Devils outscored the John Bapst side 15-2 in the third quarter, after leading the contest by six at the break.  The Crusaders would mount a comeback in the fourth, but timely baskets by Shaw ended the run and secured the victory for Central.

With the win, Central moves to 12-3 on the season and will head next to Caribou on Saturday.  John Bapst falls to 4-12 and will face the Ellsworth Eagles on the road next.
