A foul shooting streak of nine straight points ended making a significant difference in the boys’ victory, 50-39 over the visiting Mattamuskeet Lakers yesterday.
The streak started in the second period when Mac Kalna went to the foul line due to a technical foul. He made all four shots.
Dalton Kalna, Evin Caswell and Liam Caswell made the next five.
Evin Caswell led all scorers with 16 points. Matteus Gilbert had a strong second half finishing with 14 points. The Dolphins (3-9) led 14-8 at the end of the first quarter and never trailed thereafter.
The Lady Dolphins cruised to their ninth victory (9-3). The game was never in doubt as the girls jumped to a 16-0 first-quarter lead and the entire team had lots of playing time. Sydney Austin was the game’s high scorer with 27 points. Bricia Moreno was also in double figures with 13 points.
The Mattamuskeet Lakers are not having a good basketball season as neither team has yet to win (0-6).
Josie Winstead left the game with a possible sprained ankle, joining Kaylee Gaskins on the injured list. Coach Adam Burleson was doubtful that Kaylee would play the two upcoming important games this weekend and wasn’t sure about Josie’s ability to play.
This Friday, the teams travel to Buxton to take on the Cape Hatteras Hurricanes; girls start at 4 p.m. and boys follow right after.
Saturday afternoon, the Dolphins host the Camden County Bruins, Lady Dolphins tip off at 1 p.m. and the boys’ game follows right after.
The games will be broadcast on WOVV, 90.1 FM on the island and online at wovv.org.
