Lapuh shoots South past Lakeside

(Continued)

SAYBROOK TOWNSHIP — was their aggressiveness and getting after it a little bit more. I was happy with the way we closed it out.”

Lakeside point guard Tristan Bradley, who had previously been reported by a Lakeside spokesperson to be out for the season with an eye injury, returned to action on Friday wearing protection over his eyes. But Jones did not play in the first half, and Marcell Ballenger, a senior who was honored on Friday, played only briefly prior to the intermission.

The Dragons went just 19-of-60 (31.7 percent) from the floor.

“I just think that we weren’t patient enough to run an offense,” Hood said. “I think we just got away from it. If it doesn’t work right away, they just want to go one-on-one, and that’s what I yelled at them at halftime about. I just thought we were very impatient offensively. Defensively we weren’t talkative enough. If a guy gets out of hand, you’ve got to find a way to (adjust).”

Nick Schuenaman put in all 10 of his points before the break for the Rebels, and teammate Jeff Nevulis picked up where he left off, tallying all 9 of his points in the second half. Nevulis added 9 boards and 2 blocked shots. Hartfield dished out assists while Dylan Caruso had 4 for South.

“I told them our main focus was coming in tonight, winning tonight, because that’s what mattered,” Infalvi said. “If that didn’t happen, nothing else mattered. I just told them in there I was proud of the way we played. This is a good team we played tonight, and to come in and win in here and finish the game out, I was real proud of them.”
