Final Score: Sand Point Eagles (53) Vs. King Cove T-Jacks (40)
Sand Point snags another methodical win against rivals King Cove to finish off this set and their regular season. Maintaining the narrowest of leads in just one point throughout the first quarter, they came into their own at the start of the second to gain and hold their lead all the way to the finish.
Final Score: Sand Point Eagles (67) Vs. King Cove T-Jacks (33)
PARTIAL GAME: Due to conflicting scheduling, we could only catch the second half of this boys game. We do apologize for this inconvenience.
Sand Point has home-turf advantage and is out for blood in this game against the King Cove T-Jacks. Managing to slowly accumulate a lead throughout the entire game, they manage to hit an insurmountable lead in the 4th quarter and protect it with their restrictive defense.
The King Cove Rookies seem nearly unstoppable, running against their long time rivals here in Sand Point. With a commanding near-shutout in the oppressive first-quarter, the Rookies took control early and never looked back. Despite giving their all, the Sand Point Lady Eagles could not surmount the pure talent and dedication of this King Cove team.
Final Score: Sand Point Lady Eagles (31) Vs. King Cove Rookies (84)
