The Caravel Buccaneers came into the hostile William Penn Colonials gym Wednesday night, but they were not intimidated. The Buccaneers were able to keep pace with the No. 5 Colonials leading them at halftime 27-23, and after three quarters they found themselves only down by two with a 43-41 lead by the colonials.
However the fourth quarter was all William Penn. Jaylin Horsey who led all scorers in the game with 29 points scored 11 of them in the fourth quarter. When asked about fourth quarter Horsey said “We knew we needed energy. So we came out with energy. We had a couple big 3’s with tourovers that turnovers that led to points we never went back from there.
Jah-Ri Cole who scored 16 points in the game scored 7 of them in the fourth quarter. The Colonials scored 25 points in the fourth quarter to defeat the Buccaneers by a 68-50 victory. The Colonials stepped up their defense in the last quarter to keep Caravel to single digits only allowing 9 points.
After the game we asked William Penn Colonials about that fourth quarter effort his team gave and he replied “The message to the team was continue to fight and continue to battle. I told them at halftime that teams take on the persona of their coach and I know how I played so I am trying to get that to resonate with them. That last 6-7 minutes of that fourth quarter they showed up and played the way Colonial basketball is played.
Caravel was led by Zane Bohn who scored a team high 13 points while Trevor Webster added 9 points
