U13 Revo­lu­tion wins third straight

The Beacon Herald - - SPORTS -

The McKin­non Cen­tre Revo­lu­tion im­proved to 3-1 after a trio of vic­to­ries last week.

After a sea­son-open­ing loss, coaches Joe Lewis and Ja­son Burt re­mained pos­i­tive and made some ad­just­ments and em­pha­sized a pa­tient and dis­ci­plined of­fence in prac­tice.

Strat­ford de­feated the Wood­stock At­tack 45-26. After start­ing slow with a 6-0 deficit, the vis­it­ing Revo­lu­tion roared back and led by the end of the first quar­ter. The team im­proved its half-court of­fence by mak­ing proper picks and stay­ing within its sys­tems. Ja­cob Tul­ing grabbed eight boards, while Jack Small and Zach Burt snatched four each. Char­lie Kuepfer led all scor­ers with 15. Daniel Rusen Steele and Emer­son Lewis net­ted six points each, with Kieran But­ler drop­ping five. Noah Roth had three steals and three re­bounds. An­drew Leitch popped four points and added a steal and re­bound. Strat­ford then beat Bar­rie 44-37, break­ing the game open in the third quar­ter. Kuepfer was dom­i­nant with a dou­ble-dou­ble of 15 points and 11 re­bounds. Mitchell Bell had eight points on 4-for-5 shoot­ing and nabbed two re­bounds in the win­ning ef­fort. Sawyer In­gram grabbed four re­bounds and dropped two points in a strong ef­fort. An­drew Leitch hit two of three bas­kets for five points and grabbed six re­bounds. Rusen-Steele used his speed to score four points and add a steal and a block. Lewis played strongly in the guard po­si­tion set­ting up the of­fence on his way to four points, a re­bound and two steals.

Strat­ford stretched its streak to three when it took on Toronto Troyka, a team the Revo­lu­tion lost to two years ago in the On­tario cham­pi­onships. Strat­ford came out strong and pulled away in the sec­ond quar­ter of a 42-29 vic­tory. Tul­ing led the Revs with 11 points and seven re­bounds. In­gram had four points on 2-for-3 shoot­ing along with four re­bounds. Small was strong on the boards, bring­ing down three, and Bell brought down four. Lewis played strongly again at the point guard po­si­tion on his way to three points and two steals. Burt had two re­bounds, a steal and forced a jump ball play­ing strong at both ends of the court. Roth popped in two points, blocked a shot and forced two turnovers and topped it off with an around-the-back pass that led to two of But­ler’s six points on 50 per cent shoot­ing. But­ler also added a steal.

Strat­ford will put its streak on the line against Brant­ford.
