Three Rivers Academy vs King Henry School

King Henry School were able to remain undefeated after their 87-100 away win against Three Rivers Academy on Wednesday afternoon.

The first quarter would be dominated by King Henry’s inside presence as their opening 30 points came from inside the paint and from the free throw line. The visitors would take an eight point lead into the second period, but Three Rivers responded well with a 30-21 quarter behind some great outside shooting, taking a single point lead into the half.

However, the KHS duo of Mohamed Fofanah and Josh Udeje would respond with six three-pointers of their own in the second half as the visiting team’s depth would prove to be too much for Three Rivers, with KHS eventually running out 13-point winners, 87-100.

Three Rivers Coach Caylin Raftopoulos said, “There are a lot of positives to take away from today’s performance, as the team gave a valiant effort against a very well coached King Henry team. Our next step will be to put a full 40 minute game together; we cannot afford to let up against top of the table teams because they will make you pay.”

Three Rivers were led by 22 points from Marc Sylvest, while Liam Langridge-Barker added 22, and Jack Fettes had 16. Meanwhile, King Henry were paced by Bradley Tabansi’s 28 points, as Josh Udeje had 23 and David Oputa chipped in 17.

King Henry will look to continue their unbeaten start to the season when they host Holy Trinity in Week 5 of the ABL Southern Conference, while Three Rivers are on the road against Sir Robert Woodard Academy.
