Kenny Boynton 

Game 2 – American Heritage (FL) vs. Bishop Verot (FL) 63 to 59

This game was another match up of Florida schools with the host school taking on highly talented American Heritage.

The game began with Kenny Boynton showing everyone why he is a big time scorer with his team’s first 11 points. He was making up quickly for a subpar game the day before, when he scored a season low 13 points and fouled out.

Bishop Verot used a packed in zone defense to try and slow down Florida signee Eloy Vargas early on in the game. The defense seemed to frustrate Eloy Vargas early on in the game.

Eloy Vargas is still trying to come back from an ankle injury from earlier in the season. You could tell that he was slowed a little by the ankle in this game, after such an impressive performance the night before.

The game was close in the first half with American Heritage taking a 35 to 34 lead into the half.

The scoring leaders at the half were Kenny Boynton for American Heritage with 21 points and Brennen Melvin for Bishop Verot with 14 points.

In the 2nd half the game continued to be a back and forth contest with American Heritage still holding a 1 point lead at the end of the 3rd quarter.

Kenny Boynton continued to put on a show on the offensive end scoring mostly from behind the arc. Eloy Vargas never seemed to be able to get into the flow of the game and was basically a non factor in the 2nd half.

American Heritage was able to slow down Brennen Melvin in the 2nd half holding him to 3 points on 1 of 6 from the field. Bishop Verot did however receive a big 2nd half from Ryan Schrotenboer who scored 8 points and pulled down 8 rebounds.

In the 4th quarter American Heritage were able to increase their lead by 3 and hold onto for a tough victory over a pesky Bishop Verot team. The final was American Heritage 63 and Bishop Verot 59.

The standout players in the game were Kenny Boynton from American Heritage who finished with a game high 35 points on 12-24 shooting and 7-16 from behind the arc. Raymond Taylor finished with 16 points and 7 assists. Eloy Vargas had 9 points and 6 rebounds. The standouts from Bishop Verot were Ryan Schrotenboer who totaled 14 points and 15 rebounds and Brennen Melvin who totaled 17 points and 5 rebounds.
