Pure Drifter court dominance -Drifters spank Eagles and Indians to win Holiday classic

The Drifters varsity boys’ basketball team rekindled an old neighborhood rivalry over the holidays against an old nemesis, Washington & Lee, in the Northumberland Holiday Tournament. After a three-year layoff of playing their Northern Neck arch rivals, picked up where they left off by beating the Eagles handily in front of a packed house in Northumberland. The last time the Eagles and Drifters played each other was in 2006, with the Beach winning the contest.
The win or as former W&L coach Mark Comer one said “Backyard Brawl” propelled the Drifters into the Christmas tournament championship against host school Northumberland. On the subsequent night, the Drifters defeated the Indians and brought home the holiday hardware.
The Drifters played one more game over the holidays against Chancellor, where they narrowly lost by three points.
Next season when the Drifters enter the Northern Neck, the rivalry will take on the form of District competition, and the batter for area basketball supremacy will between the Eagles and Drifters will get even hotter. Drifter head coach Steve Swope said, “We take pleasure in beating W&L in anything and anytime--even if we were playing tidily winks, We have a natural rivalry built in that dates back 60 plus years.”

At the start of the game, the character of the contest took on a life of its own as both teams resembled two heavyweight boxers battling for ring dominance. TT Carey and Dylan Farinet shifted the Drifters offense into fourth gear, by scoring 18 points of the team’s 20 first quarter points to give their team a 20-11 lead after one quarter of play.
After an exchange of baskets in the second quarter, the Beach led 38-19 going into halftime.
W&L’s DJ Brooks scored 14 points in the third quarter to rally his team to a three-point lead heading into the final quarter.
The Drifters dynamic duo of Farinet and Carey recaptured the lead, scoring 22 of their team’s 25 points going down the stretch into the fourth quarter. Carey and Farinet each scored three-pointers with less than three minutes left to seal the Eagles fate. Carey and Farinet scored 69 of the Drifters 77 points.
Kevin Swope scored his second three-pointer from the left corner as the buzzer ended the game.
Drifter stats: TT Carey – 38 points [career high], 3 three-pointers, 14 rebounds, 4 assists, 6 deflected passes, 2 steals; Dylan Farinet – 31 points [career high], 3 three-pointers, 8-9 free throws, 19 rebounds, issued 4 assists, 9 deflections, 7 steals; Kevin Swope – 8 points, 2 assists, 4 steals.

Scoring crucial three-pointers, free throws and playing solid half-court defense was again the mode of operation for the Drifters winning combination of Carey and Farinet.
Carey was named the tournaments MVP after capping off another 30-point plus night. He scored 35 against the Indians defense, by making 14-18 [77%] shots from the floor. Carey also pulled down 11 rebounds, dished out three assists, deflected 11 passes, blocked four shots and ripped away four steals to earn his MVP performance.
