The Brookwood midget AAA Bullets served up a basketball lesson to the Ile Perrot Cavaliers Sunday afternoon at Riverdale High School in Pierrefonds, defeating them 77-34.
"For the most part, everything went as planned today. We had a couple of lapses here and there on defense but for the most part we came out and played hard on defense. That's what I was really looking to accomplish today. Offensively, everyone got touches and opportunities. We moved the ball very well, very much as a team," said Brookwood's head coach Kenny Clyke.
Brookwood got to work early on the Cavaliers taking a huge lead in the first quarter. As the minutes dwindled down, spectators in attendance began to wonder if the Cavaliers would be able to get on the scoreboard at all. They finally scored three points while the Bullets netted 27. Wilson Kennedy with 10 points and Dylan Crunkshank with six dominated on the scoresheet.
Brookwood continued its domination in the second quarter scoring 14 points and limiting Ile Perrot to 10. Thierry Philippot got two three-pointers for Ile Perrot during the quarter. After 20 minutes of play, Brookwood led 41-13.
Dhandre Weekes was a spark in offence for Brookwood in the third quarter, scoring seven points including a three-point basket. Kennedy was also key in getting things under way offensively as he scored three times within 1:30 of play in the quarter. He went coast to coast on his first score at 20 seconds, received a long pass on his second basket 25 seconds later before netting another one less than a minute later to put the score at 49-13 for Brookwood.
At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Bullets led 66-29 and they would not look back. They scored 16 points while the Cavaliers scored only seven. The game ended at 77-34 for Brookwood.
"It wasn't a good game for us. The other team is of another caliber. They form one of the best teams in the region. For us, it's the first year we're playing AAA basketball. There are games during which we are of the proper caliber and there are some tougher ones in which even though we play a solid game, we lack the resources to compete," said Ile Perrot's head coach Éric Gaudreault.
