The Lodge School played today like a team under siege.
And they were.
Playing at Husbands, St James, Queen’s College ran rings around the St. John school in a lopsided 71-10 victory as action in the National Sports Council’s Massy United Insurance-sponsored Secondary Schools Basketball Tournament continued.
Playing in division one, Queen’s College opened up a strong lead very early in the first quarter at 16-2 with half those points scored by Devon Deane who eventually ended with a game-high 16 points.
In the second quarter The Lodge School were unable to score a single point while Queen’s College scored 27 points to go into the penultimate quarter 43-2. Daron Kirton scored all nine of his points in the quarter to lead the school’s offensive.
The Lodge School did manage to add six points to their scoresheet but Queen’s College continued their dominance and Joshua Austin joined in the demolition act to score six of his 14 points to give Queen’s College a 59-8 advantage going into the final quarter.
The final quarter was more of the same as Queen’s College dominated while The Lodge School waited for the referee to blow his whistle and put them out of their misery. Alec Green was the main spark for The Lodge School with seven points.
