Wildcats split DH

Edison boys beat Bellaire

RICHMOND - The Edison boys' basketball team outscored Bellaire, 42-25, in the second and third quarters to break open a close game as the Wildcats downed the Big Reds, 59-40, Saturday night at Edison.

It was Edison's first win of the season.

"The win feels good," first-year Edison head coach Nate Moses said. "It is a great feeling. I'm happy for the seniors. I called the seniors out before the game. I called the seniors out before the season actually ... I told them this was their game to win."

Edison's Alec Jones netted a game-high 20 points to lead the way. Ryan Kamarich contributed 11 points, JD Howell 10 points and Erik Lee nine.

"We have three seniors, and all three seniors scored in double digits," Moses said. "Ryan did a good job of blocking some shots and rebounding. JD blocked some shots and did a good job rebounding."

Keny Hess scored a team-high 14 points to lead the way for the Big Reds, while Nick Patrone recorded 12 points.

Bellaire managed to hang in the game for the first eight minutes of play, but the final 24 minutes belonged to Edison.

"I think the key to the whole thing was our defense," Moses said. "We have been preaching to them about defense. Our pressure got a lot of turnovers.

"The kids are coming along. The kids grew up a little bit tonight. They played well. They were able to gain some confidence. It feels good."

The Bellaire girls defeated Edison 57-35 in the opening game of the varsity doubleheader.

"We didn't come out as quick as we would have liked to," first-year Edison head coach Jason Ensinger said. "We were kind of going through the motions, and you can't win that way.

"I also think their ability to shoot the 3-pointer discouraged us, and we were not able to bounce back."

The Big Reds' pressure defense forced the Wildcats into committing multiple turnovers early in the game. Bellaire was able to take advantage of Edison's miscues en route to building a double digit advantage.

"Our press was very effective," Bellaire head coach Marci Bonar said about what enabled her team to jump out to such a big lead early in the game. "We got a lot of good jumps. I was proud of our press tonight. That is how we were able to build the lead."

Cari Crozier contributed a game-high 15 points to lead the way for Bellaire, and Keirstyn Kidder recorded 13 points.

Edison senior Molly McCoy, who is one of the Wildcats' two returning starters from last year, collected a team-high eight points to lead the way.

"We knew they were missing their top three girls from last year," Bonar said about the Wildcats. "Their girls hustled. The girls played hard. Anytime you come to Edison you know it is going to be a tough game."

"We came out flat, and we dug ourselves a hole that we couldn't get out of," Ensinger said. "We had some open looks, but we couldn't get our shots to drop. In the third quarter, we missed a lot of open looks that if we had made them we could have cut into their lead."
