Basketball - Boys Varsity
vs. Williston Northampton
|Date:||February 15, 2013|
|Score:||90 - 74|
Williston showed up for a rare Friday evening game on the Duryee Court. This was the team that beat us the first game of the season, which seems like a century ago. It was also the second game of the week against a previous opponent who had gotten the better of us in the first go-around. The Bears were ready to avenge that earlier loss and executed the best half of the season by putting on a scoring clinic that resulted in a scorching 56 points in sixteen minutes, included nine three-pointers.
The Bears came back to earth, however, in the second half, scoring a mere 34 points to end the game with a season high 90, and I repeat, 90-point game. The only sour point of the evening was that, while the team was running and gunning the whole game, the team's defense was, well, not so hot, as Williston managed to score 74 points. So, if you like high-octane offense, this was your kind of game.
Kyle Kobis had 23 points with 5 three-pointers, and Chris Gaynor added a 20-point, four three-point effort. Christopher Cooke contributed a 19-point, three three-point display, and Cody Turner had ten points with only one three. The team totaled 14 three-pointers for the game, which was fun for everyone in attendance to watch. Within the next 24 hours, we host another rematch, the second this week, this time against the Avon Winged Beavers
