Drifters run the Tidewater

Beach is perfect with 10-0 District record

   For the last two consecutive years, the Drifters have rocked the high school basketball nation. Most recently, the “Black & Gold” made it official by winning their second regular season Tidewater-A District championship, as they ran the table with 10 consecutive wins. The Drifters will enter this week’s post season play needing two wins in the Tidewater tournament to clinch the number one seed in the Region-A tournament.
   The Drifters attained these goals by winning their last Tidewater District game at home over King & Queen in a blowout. After clinching the title, the Beach prepared for the second season [post season play] by defeating Essex by 15 on their home court, and subsequently crushing double-A power Chancellor by 20 in their backyard.
   In light of his team’s recent success, Drifter varsity boys’ head coach Steve Swope said, “We need to remain focused and concentrate on just the next task at hand, and not look too far ahead.”
CB 94 – K&Q 43
   Before the Tigers could take a deep breath, the Drifters had ran up a 26-7 lead in the first quarter. The Beach shot 67% from the field as a team, handed out 18 team assists and produced an amazing 39 turnovers on defense.
   Senior guard TT Carey led the way with 27 points on 11 of 14 shooting [79%] from the floor, 12 rebounds, four assists, 16 defensive deflections, two blocked shots and three steals. Carey is also the Fredericksburg area’s leading scorer.
   Junior point guard Dylan Farinet added 22 points on 10 of 12 shooting [83%] from the floor, nine rebounds, six assists, 10 deflections and five steals.
   Other Drifter stats include: Thomas Peery – 13 points, 4 three-pointers, 2 assists, 2 steals; Kevin Swope – 10 points, 2 three-pointers, four assists, three rebounds; Jeryl Dickerson – 9 points [4 of 5 shots from the field, 80%], 8 rebounds, 2 steals; Paul Roberson – 6 points [3-4 from the field, 75%], 2 rebounds, 2 steals; Jamel Dickerson – 4 points, 2 rebounds.

CB 69 – Essex 54
   The Trojans prepared the Drifters with a tough non-District, physical game that would prepare them for the upcoming post season. Not only did the Drifters slow down the Trojan’s top shooter, John Dille, but also the held the Division I prospect to 14 points, which was eight points below his average. In addition, thanks to their 1-3-1 defense, the Drifters didn’t allow him a field goal in the second half.
   In the initial stages, the 20-14 first quarter start helped the “Black & Gold” control the tempo of game.
