Drifters knock off undefeated Lancaster

Drifters reach 7-0 in Tidewater District

   The hottest ticket in town just got hotter! The Drifters boys’ varsity basketball picked up their sixth Tidewater victory without a loss, while upending the infamous fifth ranked, undefeated Lancaster Red Devils last week. Also, the Drifters cranked up their potent offensive machine and dropped Mathews to the tune of 85-points before pilling up 71 points against a tough Red Devil defense.
CB 85 – Mathews 50
   The Drifters knew they would be in for a tough game on the long road trip to Mathews, and their start proved it. The Blue Devils jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead and several Drifters turnover could have easily led to more.
Once the Drifters stopped the Mathews surge, they proceeded to rally to a 25-9 lead. Matthews roared back to cut the lead to 28-24 just before halftime.
   In the third quarter, the Drifters regrouped and put the game away with a 27-7 run. Dylan Farinet turned in one his top performances as the talented point forward made 12 out of 19 shots [63% from the field], six out of 10 free throws to total a game high 30 points. In addition, he snatched 17 rebounds, dished six assists, deflected six passes, picked up six steals and blocked two shots.
TT Carey followed up with 29 points on 12 of 23 shooting [52%], four of five free throws, five rebounds, four assists, 11 deflections, one blocked shot and a number of steals.
   Other Drifter stats: Kevin “K-Dog” Swope: 8 points [including 2 three-pointers], five rebounds, 6 assists, 5 deflected, 2 steals. Jeryl Dickerson: 9 points [4-6], 4 assists, 1 blocked shot, 5 deflections, 4 rebounds. Joe Slater: three-pointer. Alex Gorfida: 4 points, 3 rebounds, 1 blocked shot, offensive charge on defense. Paul Roberson: six rebounds, solid defense.
CB 71 – Lancaster 59
   The setting was right, the crowd was primed and the Drifters came ready to play. Determined to give the Red Devils their first loss, the Drifters accomplished their mission with poise and teamwork.
After trailing 7-0 to open the game, the Beach went on a breath taking run to go up on the Red Devils by 14. Fueled by the high flying dunks of TT Carey and the speed of Dylan Farinet’s court moves, the Drifters gave the fans their money’s worth.
Although the Red Devils cut into the Drifter deficit by closing in by one point in the final quarter, they failed to take lead, as the Drifters closed the game out with a 12-point lead.
   The Drifters shot 48% from the floor, 100% from the free throw line, out-rebounded the Red Devils 43-34, blocked five shots, drew four
