Blue Knights overcome 1st half scoring drought to earn the 80-50 victory over the Greyhounds.

The home town KVHS Blue Knights recovered from a terrible scoring drought in the first half to coast to a 80-50 victory over the visiting Saint John High Greyhounds.

KVHS jumped out quickly to start the game 11-4, but then went completely ice cold allowing the Hounds to go on a 26-4 run and to take a 30-15 lead. The Blue Knights finally righted the ship in the closing minutes of the half with a 12-4 run of their own to retake the lead 37-34 heading to the locker room. A lead they would not surrender.

Coming out of the locker room the host team showed a much greater level of intensity on defense which led to easy transition baskets. KVHS won the 3rd quarter 24-6, and the 4th quarter 19-10 to finish with the 30 point victory, 80-50.

Leaders for KVHS were:

  • Liam McKee with 25 points
  • Jack Way with 19 points
  • Drew Martin with 11 points

Leaders for SJHS were:

  • Felix Turner with 19 points
  • Stephen Gogan with 10 points
  • Nate Jensen with 8 points

KVHS improves to 5-0 in league play, 10-3 overall.
