Northeast basketball falls short at Shootout

Kaleb Fitzgerald dominated his guard matchup with 18 points, and highly touted 6-7 freshman forward Scott Barnes controlled the frontcourt with a game-high 22 points as West Palm Beach-Cardinal Newman beat Northeast 66-54 on Friday night at the Hoop Exchange Southern Shootout at Westminster Academy in Fort Lauderdale.

It was vintage Fitzgerald who used a stutter dribble to free two defenders in the paint and banked in a shot to beat the first quarter buzzer and put Newman up 20-10.

Northeast 6-5 forward Bryce Sanchious, who led a comeback in the third quarter and finished with a team-high 19 points, said: “We could have done better in the first half, but we came out very soft. We didn’t do a good job packing the paint. We came back better in the second half; we came out fighting. I have to be more vocal, encourage teammates when they’re down to do more fighting.”

Newman held a 34-19 halftime lead before Sanchious sparked a 13-4 run at the end of the third quarter to help the Hurricanes get back in the game. Sanchious finished a steal of Barnes with a breakaway dunk and then followed with another steal and layup to cut the lead to 48-38 with 1:06 left in the third quarter.

The Fitzgerald-Barnes tandem, however, erased any hope for a comeback with timely plays down the stretch. Fitzgerald’s steal with 3:41 left led to a Barnes’ dunk, and Fitzgerald added a pair of free throws and consecutive defensive rebounds to help Newman build an 11-point lead with 1:53 left.

Brandon Swaby had 11 points, and Tyler Jarvis added eight points for the Hurricanes.

NE: Sanchious 19, Smith 6, Swaby 11, Jarvis 8, Chery 8, Gallette 2. CN: Hayes 6, Fitzgerald 18, Barnes 22, Onuama 4, Steele 6, Golson 3, Iscoe 7. Half: CN 34-19.

Football

The North has been on the right side of the score four of the past five meetings with the South in the annual BCAA All-Star Football Classic.

During the 20th gathering at Nova High in Davie on Thursday night, it appeared it would be business as usual ... but not so fast.

McArthur quarterback Ethnic Sands ran around left end five yards for the winning touchdown with 54 seconds remaining to lift the South to a 14-12 victory.

It was the ninth time in all-star game history that the game was decided by five of fewer points.

“I give the North front all the credit in the world,” South coach Kevin Huntley (Nova) said. “We had to make some serious halftime adjustments, and we managed to get some things done. They gave us the look that we wanted, and we took advantage of it.”

Sands, who was named the Otis Gray Most Valuable Player, set up the winning score when he connected with Destra Benoit of South Broward to put the ball at the North 22.

Four plays later Sands scored.

“I just took it,” Sands said. “The mindset was to keep driving down field, running the ball, running the ball, and I took advantage of it.”

The North still had a chance to win it, but Pompano Beach kicker Joao DeMoura missed a 38-yard field goal attempt as time expired.

The North jumped out to a quick 9-0 lead when Logan Good of Pompano Beach High found Da’Quan Bailey-Brown on a slant pattern racing 67 yards untouched for the touchdown with 10:47 into the first quarter. Prior, the North recorded a safety only 10 seconds into the game.

The South did strike back on a 90-yard kickoff return by Benoit cutting the deficit to 9-7. DeMoura converted a 36-yard field goal early in the second quarter for a 12-7 lead at the half.
