KEYMAR, Md.— Washington’s schedule had included only one other game where the entire squad was able to get playing time. And that easy win was way back in December against Broadfording Christian Academy.
On Monday, the Patriots trounced Silver Oak Academy (once known as Bowling Brook Academy), 72-50, with the entire roster getting into the action early and often. The comfortable win boosted Washington’s record to 13-6 overall with only two home games remaining on the regular season schedule — this Friday against Jefferson and then next Wednesday against the same Silver Oak Academy.
Washington, which moved to 10th place in a Charleston-based newspaper’s ratings poll of Class AAA teams, took an 11 point lead at the half as Coach Don Bullett went deep into his bench as early as the second quarter.
The Patriots steadily increased their lead throughout the second half. Tyrek Collier had 18 points and was credited with 11 rebounds in the romp. Reserves Jesse Hathaway and Bryant Currence each totaled 10 points and starter Kendell Smith added nine points. Reserve Marquel Hosby scored eight points for the Patriots as they won for the sixth straight time.
