Posted on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at 4:00 pm

The game was sluggish to start as the ball frequently transferred possession from team to team. Then, Colonial Beach’s Keane Foster (#3) started the game off with two points on the board. He then continued by scoring a 3-pointer just a few moments later and Lamar Lucas (#23) snagged a rebound shortly after, giving the Drifters a quick seven point lead. Washington and Lee fought back as Terrin Dickerson (#24) scored the first two points for his team by two foul shots. Eagles’ Davon Hamilton (#4) then made a quick layup and Milan Bullock (#10) scored three points with a combination of a basket and a free throw. With two minutes left, the Eagles’ own Treshaun Brown (#12) scored consecutive back to back shots. Colonial Beach was able to grab the last shot of the quarter, setting the score to 11 – 9 in the Eagles’ favor.

Again Keane Foster of the Drifters began the quarter with a basket, followed by Kamron Smith (#4) to gain the lead. The Eagles tied the game up with a shot shortly afterwards and managed to score one foul shot to put them ahead of the Drifters. However, the Drifter’s Montie Gould (#5) came out of nowhere for a shot that added three points to the board. The Eagles swooped in with DJ Weldon (#22) making two sequential shots to gain the lead yet again. With the help of Bullock and Brown, the Eagles were able to put a healthy amount of points on the scoreboard and the Drifters began to lose the close game as the buzzer rang with a score of 32 – 25.
