CB Drifters end season on top of 1A Conference 43

It’s been a season of up and downs for the Colonial Beach High School varsity Drifters, but in the end, they prevailed. On Saturday, the 1A Conference 43 regular season champions defeated Rappahannock, 58-39. Raider guard, Jamal Fisher did everything he could to put a cork in the Drifter scoring attack, led by Monte Gould (19 points, 8 rebounds), but the sustained effort by Colonial Beach eventually resulted in defeat for the visiting Raiders.

“The first half was kind of shaky,” Drifter boys varsity basketball head coach Jonathan Parker said. “I told them at half time about the importance of boxing out and forcing turnovers.”

Parker’s encouragement paid off, as the Drifters outscored the Raiders, 18-10 in the third quarter, and 17-7 in the final quarter. “We were playing the kind of basketball that we’re capable of,” Parker said. “If we can continue playing like that, we should win the Conference 43 tournament.”

The first quarter was a wake up call for the Raiders; the Drifters came out blasting two 3-pointers, two foul shots, and a field goal, courtesy of Keane Foster, and Monte Gould respectively. Midway in the quarter, the Raiders managed a short 8-4 run that cut the Drifter deficit to five points (14-9). The Drifters repeatedly crashed the boards, and literally owned the post zone throughout the quarter.

“We had to be aggressive, because they were short-handed, and I wanted to put pressure on them by forcing turnovers, which gave us the momentum,” Parker said.

In the second quarter, the Raiders finally came to play. Within the first minute and a half, the Raiders scored two baskets that cut the Drifters lead to 14-13. During the next five exchanges, the Raiders took a 19-18 lead, after Fisher nailed a long ranged jumper from just inside the perimeter.

However, the Drifters quickly responded with a Foster 3-pointer that lifted the Drifter fan faithful out of their seats. With an assist from Kamron Smith, Lamar Lucas launched another 3-pointer that extended the Drifter lead to 23-19. Undaunted, Fisher scored a halftime buzzer-beating 3-pointer to keep the Raiders within two points of the Drifter lead.

In the third quarter, the Raiders unleashed everything they could within their offensive arsenal, but the Drifters refused to give in. After an exchange of eight scores, Gould and Lucas collectively extended the Drifters’ lead to 41-32.

In the final quarter, the Drifters defense suffocated the Raiders offensive, as they were limited to two points. Gould completed the Drifters surge with eight points, as the Raiders offense stumbled and could never get back on track.
