2A-10 district basketball: Calvary fights off IRC; Tampa Prep coasts past Bishop

LARGO — In the Class 2A District 10 semifinals Friday, one game was closely contested, similar to the season series, while the other was a mismatch.

Calvary Christian jumped out to an 18-6 first-quarter lead, but after allowing Indian Rocks Christian to pull within eight at the end of the third quarter, had to go on a 15-8 fourth quarter run to preserve a 58-43 win.

Calvary Christian had two starters in double digits, led by Kyle Wiedinger's 21, the majority coming in the first and fourth quarters. He was assisted by Derrick Barnes' 13 points, which included a 3-pointer.

IRC got most of its scoring out of starter Sean Culkin, with 22 of the team's 43. He received a little help from Ryan Ferguson and fellow starter Spencer Adkinson, who had seven and five points, respectively.

In the second game, Tampa Prep started slow, with only an 18-9 advantage after the first quarter. However, the Terrapins quickly picked things up, going on a 52-9 run the rest of the way en route to a 70-18 victory over Bishop McLaughlin.

Tampa Prep was paced by starting guard Josh Heath's 15 points, including a 3-pointer. He got plenty of help from fellow starting guard Devontae Morgan, who had 11.

The team received contributions from its bench players beginning in the second half, with freshman guard Marshall Holmes contributing eight points. Sophomore Andy Fullerton proved deadly from 3-point range, with all six of his points coming from beyond the arc.

"It was a good way to start the district tournament," Tampa Prep coach Joe Fenlon said. "We had an opportunity to get all 13 guys to contribute to a win."

Bishop got five points each out of Jordan Betancourt and Dane Barhonovich, while Zack Lockhart chipped in four.
