BOYS HOOPS: Ike wins big: Knights dispatch of Eagles at Youngsville

Friday night was rivalry night at Youngsville High School with Eisenhower walking away with the 62-35 win.

Casey Vincent led Eisenhower with 22 points including five three-pointers.

“It’s a big rivalry and every time we play Youngsville, we have a lot of energy and we did tonight,” said Eisenhower coach Dave Allenson.

“I’m not disappointed in our effort,” said Youngsville coach Jim Kesterholt. “Rival games always bring out the best in both teams. We hung with them pretty well I thought in the first half. We got a little tired mentally and we collapsed. I’m proud of my boys, they played their hearts out and I can’t ask for more than that.”

“In the beginning I thought we did a nice job getting in the passing lanes and we had some nice steals,” Allenson said. “Then later in the second quarter we got really sloppy. We had too many turn overs and too many missed shots. We let them get back in the game and get some hope. Then they came out in the second half and got back in it.”

“We’ve still got 12 games and the confidence is going to start to rise,” said Kesterholt.

Brockway 62,

Sheffield 54

Sheffield dropped a heartbreaker to Brockway on the road 62-54 Friday night.

“The game was tied 40-40 with three and a half minutes to go,” said Sheffield coach Tony Richards. “Then we had a couple breakdowns on our weak side and they got a couple of baskets for momentum. It was pretty much a five-point game until they had their free throws and pulled ahead.”

Jake Johnson came up big for the Wolverines. After sitting out the first quarter with Sheffield down 14-6, Johnson came out and scored nine points in the second quarter.

“Hats off to Jake for stepping up like that,” Richards said. “I’m proud of my guys. It was a good team effort. We were shorthanded and they stepped up. They had a good effort.”
