Drifters bounce back

 

Although the Drifters varsity basketball team opened their regular 2008-2009 season with a one-point lost to Lancaster, they regrouped and returned home with a win over Ameila County. With the goal of avenging their one-point loss to Lancaster, the Drifters suffered the same fate that occurred in their last game. The same last second shot that came off the basketball rim last year, took the same journey to come back out this year, giving the Red Devils reason to celebrate. True to form, the Drifters regained their traditional winning swagger and defeated Amelia at the Drifterdome.
Head coach Steve Swope realizes that the loss could be an inspiration for his team to stay focused as the season progresses. “It was a heartbreaker to lose on the same shot at the buzzer two years in a row,” coach Swope said. “The good part about this year’s déjà vu is our ability to play well the next night and beat a quick Amelia team.”
Lancaster 62 – Colonial Beach 61
Last year the Drifters lost 57-56 after a buzzer beater shot by TT Carey came off the back of the basketball rim. Unfortunately, the shot fate happened again, only this time it was Dylan Farinet’s shot that came out of the basket.
Carey led the way for the Beach as the talented playmaker finished with a team hight 29 points. He was 9-16 from the field [56%]. In addition, Carey scored 9 out 10 foul shots and pulled down 11 rebounds. He dished out four assists, deflected 11 passes and produced five steals defensively. He also scored two 3-pointers and consistently penetrated the Red Devil defense as he drove towards the basket.
Senior shooting guard Kevin “K-Dog” Swope opened the season on fire, as he scored six 3-pointers. K-Dog scored eight of 15 shots [53%] from the field. He also deflected six passes and picked up five steals defensively.
As a team, the Drifters were rusty, shooting 36% from the field, while being out-rebounded by nine, 40-31.
Colonial Beach 82 – Amelia County 65
The host Beach bursts through the tunnel, ambushing Amelia 20-8 with a first quarter explosion. The Drifters shot 54% from the field, making 56 of 67 shots, including five 3-pointers. They also crashed the boards by out-rebounding their bigger opponents, 52-37—and forced them into 35 turnovers.
Carey continued this offensive early season explosion by another 29 point output. He came close to a triple double again, as he ripped down 10 rebounds, dished out six assists, deflected 12 passes and stole eight passes on defense. Carey scored one 3-pointers and torched Amelia’s pressure defense by consistently driving to the rim.
Junior, point-forward Dylan Farinet busted loose in this game with 18 points on eight of eleven [73%] shooting from the floor. He also hauled in 12 rebounds, issued six assists, deflected seven passes, blocked one shot, and finished the night with four steals.
K-Dog nailed a 3-pointer, totaling five points, gathered five rebounds, and handed out six assists.
Junior, power forward Paul Roberson produced one of his best games with eight points on three of four shooting, pulled down five rebounds, deflected nine passes, blocked a shot and had a solid defensive game all nigh in the post area against Amelia’s defense.
Junior, forward Travis Cundiff came in and provided a spark with nine points, making four of seven shots, including a 3-pointer.
Thomas Perry scored a 3-pointer, as he totaled five points for the game. He also contributed three rebounds and two steals. Perry’s teammate Jamel Dickerson added four points, five rebounds and two steals. Thomas Haywood and Alex Gorfida each scored a basket to complete the Drifter victory.
After their Monday win over archrival King George, the Drifters are 2-1 overall. The “Black & Gold” will travel to Amelia on Thursday, December 18. The Drifters will host Tidewater District rival West Point on Friday, December 19.
