After the Lady Tigers fell to the Lady Warriors on Thursday night, the Irving College 7-8 grade boys team got revenge and beat Centertown in similar fashion, winning 46-15.
Corban Felton, a quick guard who can drive to the basket, led Irving College in scoring with a gamehigh 16. Kiptyn Medley was the top scorer for Centertown with 6.
Centertown started strong with Medley driving for a basket, but that quickly turned as Irving College’s defense strengthened. Felton and Anden Green both stole the ball and made a layup each back-to-back.
Brayden Snider was especially strong as a post, putting up plenty of points under the goal in the first quarter. Green also made a 3-pointer helping put the Tigers further ahead. By the end of the first quarter, Irving College was in control 19-3.
The lead stayed consistent through the second quarter with Centertown unable to put up the points to catch up. Warriors Cohen Moore and Ryan Romzek put up a couple points each, but with consistent Tiger scorers Felton and Green, Irving College was going to be tough to beat.
Green nailed another 3-pointer at the halftime buzzer putting Irving College up 28-7 at the break.
Felton continued to be a leading scorer in the third quarter with some jump shots and free throws. Centertown managed to put up a few more points in the third, but Irving College had already established a great lead and the Warriors didn’t have the firepower needed to make up the deficit.
Irving College had the scoring advantage over Centertown with the Tigers showing they are going to be contenders come tournament time.
