2A-10 boys basketball: Tampa Prep cruises into final

Class 2A, district 10

Tampa Prep eases into championship

CLEARWATER — Tampa Prep controlled things almost from the start against Bishop McLaughlin in the Class 2A-10 semifinals Friday night.

Bishop McLaughlin (1-25) led briefly 2-0, then it was all Terrapins, who won 74-19. Senior David Fletcher, who finished with 12 points, led the assault with eight consecutive points off turnovers.

After mounting an 18-2 lead, the Terrapins (21-4) quickly emptied their bench midway through the first quarter.

Senior Tyler Raquet added 10 points off the bench and had 16 for the game along with four rebounds. The Terrapins continued to bring heavy pressure and built a 47-6 lead at the half; the second half was played with a running clock.

"That was a great way to start district play," Terrapins coach Joe Fenlon said.

Tampa Prep faces Calvary Christian, a 43-40 winner over Indian Rocks, in tonight's final.

Calvary Christian (11-15) had previously met IRC twice this season, losing both games. But they were missing starting point guard Jim Appelt in both games.

Friday's game was nip and tuck in the fourth quarter. Then Alex Govan put up a quick seven points and Calvary's defense stepped it up. IRC (13-11) went cold in the quarter, and its last shot was errant at the buzzer.

Christian Colangelo scored 14 points and Alex Govan added 15 for the Warriors.
