Beavers Fall To Rockets

December 10, 2019

 

Late in the first half, Brookfield senior Jonah Rogers moved to shoot, but found the way blocked by two DeRuyter defenders.

 

Rogers instead flipped a side pass to teammate Kodie Abrams, who hit a long bucket that cut the Beavers gap to 11 points, 39-28. But those were just two of nine points the BCS boys varsity team had in the second quarter as visiting DeRuyter scored 27 points for a 46-28 halftime lead.

 

The Rockets hung nearly 100 points on Brookfield to win 95-67 in the CCL matchup. The Beavers dropped to 1-2 with the loss.

DeRuyter actually got off to a great start with a lead before the game clocked ticked off any time. Brookfield was assessed a technical foul for taunting during the warmups and the Rockets opened with a free throw, followed by two baskets once time started.

 

Derrick Winfield’s 3-pointer put the Beavers on the board and then he followed with a nice offensive rebound. Not until the first of Kaden Ondrako’s four 3-pointers did Brookfield take the lead, 8-7, and regained it with his second in a row, 11-9.

 

Preston Crespo hit two free throws and Abrams, who scored 25 points in the game, started off with a dribble drive bucket to make it 15-11.

 

Winfield added to that with a layup, but DeRutyer connected on...
