Scott Caps Career with Key Victory

Ryan Scott finished his Crusader’s basketball career helping his team pull off a huge 78-64 victory over the Harbour View Vikings.

This was a total team effort for the Crusaders who led wire-to-wire, winning each quarter. Colin Loughery led the way with 22 points and 17 rebounds with Ryan Scott adding 16 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals. Dallen McDougall, once again, drew the assignment of guarding the other team’s best player. This time Dallen held the Vikings conference player of the year candidate, Jack Fury-Miller, to just one made field goal in the second half. Also stepping up big for KVHS was sophomore point guard, Ryan Pollard with 15 points while Brady Soucy came off the bench to drain five 3-pointers, finishing with 16 points.

Despite the Crusaders best efforts, Jack Fury-Miller showed why he is one of the best players in the conference, scoring 22 points, many of which came with defenders hanging all over him. Gerry Bidgood added nine points, including a clutch jumper at the end of the game to preserve the tie-break advantage for Harbour View over KVHS (HVHS won the first game 94-79).

With the victory, KVHS remains at three losses (7-3) while Harbour now has four (5-4).

Following the exam break, Ryan Scott will head back to British Columbia, where he attended school last year, to continue his pursuit of playing professional baseball someday. Ryan finishes his Crusader’s career in the top 10 in scoring (15.05 ppg), assists (2.59 apg) and total rebounds (303). This is despite missing his junior year playing baseball and the first part of his senior year training with Team Canada.

The Crusaders are back in action on Saturday, January 26 when they host Woodstock, then finish up league play by hosting Simonds and Rothesay the final week of the season.
