Boys Basketball: Wade, Williams help Eagles shoot down Bedford

 

The Skyline boys’ basketball team hit the road on Friday night and headed down to Bedford for a game with the Kicking Mules. The Eagles jumped out to a nice lead and never looked back, bringing home a comfortable 66-42 win in an SEC Red Division game.

Skyline got off to a hot shooting start, taking an early 9-2 lead against Bedford. But the Kicking Mules fought back the last half of the first quarter to cut the deficit to 19-15.

The teams would go back and forth in the second quarter in a tight game. Skyline then was able end the second quarter on a run over the last 2 minutes applying some full-court pressure. Jack Williams made a couple three-point shots and a Ryan Wade steal for a layup helped Skyline build a 32-21 halftime lead.

Wade led the way in the third quarter as the senior knocked down four triples and Skyline used excellent half-court defense to build the lead to 16 points to end the third quarter.

Skyline continued to pull away with a solid defensive effort in the fourth quarter to finish the game in the win column.

Wade finished with 29 points on 10 of 19 shooting and made eight three-point shots to go along with 4 steals and 4 assists. Williams made his first varsity start and contributed 14 points and 4 rebounds making 4 of 5 three-point attempts.
