Keswick Suncoast: hed herey

ST. PETERSBURG — The Keswick Christian girls stayed with defending champion St. Thomas More of Ontario in the championship until Cassie Foster picked up her third foul early in the second quarter. The Knights responded with relentless pressure and an 11-2 run to blow open the game and take a 50-23 victory Wednesday.

"She got good fouls trying to get charges," Crusaders coach Karrmayne King said. "What really hurt us is their depth."

The Knights used 14 players and got scoring from eight of them in taking control of the game.

"They make it very easy to coach and it takes the burden off of the girls to do too much," Knights coach Blaize DiSabatino said. "This is a tournament we look forward to all season and it means a lot to come from another country and play ball."

The Knights were led by tourney MVP Danielle Boiago, who scored 16 and had five assists.

The Crusaders' Tori Hale finished with 11 points, five rebounds, four assists and five steals.

In the boys final, Boyd Anderson opened the game with 11 straight points against Clearwater Central Catholic and never looked back en route to a 60-26 victory.

"My players gave it their all and I'm proud of the way they played," CCC coach Rick Coia said. "They were so much bigger and more athletic, but when we get down to playing teams in our level passing and rebounding should be easier."

Colby Robinson led the Marrauders with eight points while Nick Newton and Max Eaton each added six points. Brett Lawton led CCC with six rebounds.

"Those guys (CCC) made us focus on beating their zone," Cobra coach Eugene Robinson said. "We had to execute and be patient.
