Strong defense leads varsity boys to easy victory against Woodland Christian

Students, players and parents drove to the Yolo County Fairgrounds to see the boys’ varsity basketball team take on the Woodland Christian Cardinals on Dec. 7.

The boys won in an extremely one-sided victory, 75-35.

Sophomore Rick Barros III led the team with 29 points, followed by sophomore B.J. Askew with 24.

Barros said the Cavs would have to execute on all ends in order to come out victorious.

“We need to be sensational,” Barros said.

And they were. The Cavs held the lead for the entire game.

It took the Cardinals three minutes just to score, but by then the Cavs were up, 9-0.

The Cavs continued to dominate the Cardinals, not letting them score again until the final minute of the quarter. The Cavs finished the first quarter with a 27-9 lead.

The Cavs came into the second quarter determined to demoralize the Cardinals. Steal after steal resulted in easy fast break points for SCDS.

The Cavs were able to extend their lead, finishing the half, 50-21.

Coming out of the half, the Cavs looked to maintain their defensive dominance.

The boys allowed the Cardinals to score only two points in the third quarter.

The quarter ended with the Cavs maintaining an even larger lead, 71-23.

The Cavs ended their dominating victory with their lowest scoring quarter of the night, scoring only four points to the Cardinals’ 12.

Head coach David Ancrum said the boys were successful defensively.

“We played really good defense and were able to get out and run,” Ancrum said.

Askew said the boys played well due to their good team play.

“We talked a lot of defense and exploded off rebounds,” Askew said.

The boys’ next game will be at Vista del Lago against Rodriguez on Thursday, Dec. 10, at 8:30 p.m.
