The Kenedy Lions 10-10 (2-2 in district) defeated the Falls City Beavers 54-45.  The game was close from the beginning, with Kenedy holding an 11-9 lead after the 1st quarter.  After a strong quarter from Dedrick Wilson, Kenedy stretched out the lead at half to 26-20.  After some halftime adjustments, Falls City come out in the 3rd quarter firing, led by Brady Lyssy’s 3 three pointers.   The Beavers outscored the Lions 15-5 to take a 35-31 lead.

In the 4th quarter, the Lions took control of the game outscoring the Beavers 23-10.   The play of the game for the Lions came on defense from Israel Reyes. After a steal from the Lions the Beavers were going for the tying lay-up.  Israel Reyes was able to knock the ball away, and grab the steal. With the game in doubt, Isreal Reyes and hit a big three pointer to give Kenedy a 5 point lead with 1:45 left in the game.  The leading scorers for Kenedy was Dedrick Wilson with 18 pts, Lee Garza Jr 12 pts, Rudy Cruz III 9 pts, Israel Reyes and Jayden Chapa had 5 pts, and Najhel Felix-Gely had 4 pts.

I am very proud of my team, we kept our composer in a rauckous atmosphere and played very well down the stretch.  Jayden Chapa did a great job of leading this team. He took care of the ball and played with great poise. The Lions close out the first half of district with a game at Woodsboro to play Refugio Tuesday, Jan 15.  Then play Friday , Jan 18 against Woodsboro here in Kenedy.
