Lancers shut down Pirates 79-25

Kennedy won not walking away but running away on Wednesday dominating every facet of the game. A large part of the domination was due, in part, to the play in the post by No. 40 team captain Cole Madison.

Madison’s performance was key to the Lancers victory. When a shot at the basket failed to drop in there was Madison to scoop it up. Very few offensive or defensive rebounds got by him.

When Madison was pulled early in the third period the damage had been done with the score 40-11 and Kennedy comfortably in control.

Another standout for Kennedy was No. 12 guard Anthony McCluskey. The Lancer guard seemed to hit almost every shot he took. When McCluskey didn’t have the rock it was Chandler Reed No. 32 or No. 10 James Jolly dropping bombs from the corners.

It was the long range shooting by Kennedy that baffled Highline. When the Pirates would close off the lanes Kennedy shooters would simply move to the corners and pound in three’s or long two point shots.

When asked about the game head coach Don Hoffman had this to say; “We had a lot of miss matches we took advantage of and our kids played great defense.”

On this night the Lancers were simply too much for Highline to handle.

Kennedy’s next game is Friday, Dec. 7 at Foster High School. Game time is 7:45.

Highline will host Tyee at 7:45 on Friday.
