|Score:||Berkshire 46 - Kent 67|
The Kent Lions made the trip north on a dreary, snowy, cold January night for an evening tilt against the Bears on the Duryee Court. Would they arrive like Lions and leave like Lambs was the question. Well roar they did in pre-game warm ups which carried into the first half as they played like Lions shooting the lights out from every area of the court. The Berkshire five played hard as well but did not fare as well on the offensive end as it seemed that some mysterious force had covered the hoop. Score at half time was the Lions 40 to the Bears meager 19.
The second half saw the Lions cool to the January temperatures while the Bears began to score. While Kent did not score like they did in the first half they still played defense like Lions. The best news was that the Bears did out score the Kent five in the second stanza in a fast and furious contest. The Bears left it all on the floor with the only problem being Kent’s talent which was insurmountable. The hope was to tame them to Lambs but on this night the Lions roar was not to be contained. Final score 67 to 46.
Everyone played, and played hard. Ben Brigham, TJ Stewart, Max Way, Colin Foss, Trevor Barry, Chris Cooke and Will Fortenbaugh (6 points as well) lead the defensive effort while Troy Pierre-Louis’ 17 points, Levante Wiggins’ 7; Cyrus Rothwell- Ferraris’ 8; and Jay Ma’s 4 points all helped on the offensive end. Next stop a rematch with the Taft Rhinos on Wednesday in the friendly confines of the Duryee Court, with the hope of a much more spirited effort this week.
