Kellenberg Forwards Ignite Win At Hofstra

Reporter Mike Sullivan has the story on Kellenberg's victory ...

James Scahill recorded 24 points and Kevin Milella added 16 points to lead Kellenberg past Bayside 66-46, at the an event supporting several charities in the name of Tom Crotty who passed away in the tragic September 11th terrorist attacks.

Kellenberg claimed a 29-26 advantage after the first 16 minutes of play (first half). But due to the outstanding play of Scahill and Milella, and some smart floor play by Kevin Cunningham, Kellenberg was able to blow this game wide open.

On several trips down the floor, Cunningham smartly disected the Bayside defense with bounce passes. Scahill and Milella were the receiptients of many of these passes which led to driving layups.

Cunningham finished with seven points but he was as big a part of the victory as were his big teammates. Kellenberg is now 9-5 on the season.

Bayside was led by Carlos Solano, who dropped in 13 points, including two three points. Keith Thornton added eight points while Dwayne Brown also had eight.

In the first game of the morning, St. John's Prep slipped past Carey High School, 42-40. Carey had an opportunity to tie the game in the closing seconds but were unable to convert the tying basket.

Carey lead 21-19 after the first half of play. The advantage never grew by more than a few points during the second half of play.
