WYE MILLS — The Bay­side H.O.Y.A.S. earned the Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege Sum­mer League cham­pi­onship with a 55-48 vic­tory over Fed­er­als­burg last Mon­day.

The H.O.Y.A.S., based in Kent County and coached by John Queen and Melvin Free­man, were led by point guard Nytre Green who scored a team-high 20 points and added 11 as­sists in the vic­tory. He also scored 17 points in a semi­fi­nal vic­tory Hur­lock ear­lier in the night.

YaQuan Dar­ling led the way for Fed­er­als­burg with 20 points. He be­gan the game by scor­ing 11 of Fed­er­als­burg’s first 13 points. A three­p­ointer, fol­lowed by a three point play by Dar­ling gave Fed­er­als­burg a 13-11 lead early in the first half.

Bay­side’s Ricky Bowser (8 points) tied the score at 13-13 when he con­verted on an of­fen­sive re­bound. Later, Green’s driv­ing layup tied the score at 17-17, but Fed­er­als­burg’s Mar­cus John­son (11 points) nailed a three-pointer to go up 20-17.

Af­ter a time­out, the H.O.Y.A.S. went to work, go­ing on a quick 8-0 run to go up 25-20. JayShaun Free­man (9 points) hit a run­ner, then swished a three-pointer to give the H.O.Y.A.S. the lead. A sweet pass by Green to TaQuan Cor­ley put the H.O.Y.A.S. up four, and then Green added a free throw to go up five.

Fed­er­als­burg came back be­fore the half to tie the score at 25-25 on a layup by Dar­ling.

Green dom­i­nated the sec­ond half for the H.O.Y.A.S., scor­ing 15 of his 20 points. He opened the half with a layup, and then hit two free throws. Fed­er­als­burg’s John­son kept pace with a layup and two free throws of his own to tie the score at 29-29.

Dar­ling, though, gave Fed­er­als­burg a 34-31 lead when he buried a three-pointer.

The H.O.Y.A.S. an­swered quickly with a 13-4 run for a 4438 lead. Green’s layup started the run Cade Don­nelly then hit a three-pointer to take the lead. Free­man then grabbed an of­fen­sive re­bound and scored. Bowser added two free throws.

Don­nelly con­verted a layup af­ter snatch­ing an of­fen­sive re-

bound Then Green capped the run with a driv­ing left-handed layup.

Fed­er­als­burg pulled within two when Diante Dick­er­son drove the lane and scored to cut the lead to 44-42. It would be the clos­est Fed­er­als­burg would get with Green tak­ing over the game, scor­ing seven of the H.O.Y.A.S. nine points and pro­vid­ing suf­fo­cat­ing defense.

Green’s layup in­creased the lead to four. Then when Fed­er­als­burg was gain­ing mo­men­tum, he drib­bled up court, saw the defense ex­pected him to drive and nailed a three-pointer for a 53-43 lead. He added the fi­nal bas­ket, a layup to seal the cham­pi­onship for the H.O.Y.A.S.
