Broughton blasts Kinston in Glaxo, 65-45.

2010 GlaxoSmithKline Holiday Invitational
Live Blog: Caps blast Kinston at the Glaxo

By Chris Edwards (Reporter from High School OT)

FINAL: Broughton 65, Kinston 45

Early in the final quarter, Kinston went on a quick 3-1 run to pull to within 15 points and that seemed to swing the momentum toward the Vikings, however Jalen Holley hit a three-pointer to moved the lead back to 18 at 48-30 with six and a half minutes to play.

After a Kinston bucket made it 48-32, the Cap's Andrew Ocampo hit a fast break lay-up and on the play, Kinston was called for an intentional foul. That really put the dagger into Vikings comeback efforts as Broughton's lead grew back to 20 points with four and a half to play.

Kinston kept fighting and to their credit refused to quit, but Broughton increased the lead to as many as 27 points with three minutes left.

The Caps will move on to the final day of the Glaxo when they will meet Knightdale at 11AM tomorrow (Thursday, Dec. 30).

END 3Q: Broughton 44, Kinston 27

Broughton was outscored 4-3 over the first thee plus minutes of the third quarter, but they built such a big halftime lead and Kinston still struggled on offense that the poor shooting by the Caps really did not matter. The only field goal for Broughton during that stretch was a Conor Strickland three pointer with 6:40 to play in the quarter. For the Vikings, their only field goal during that time was by Rashad Fields with 5:02 left in the period.

Kinston did put together a late charge to cut the lead to under 20 points with 13.5 seconds left.

For the third quarter, the two teams combined to score just 15 points in the quarter.

HALFTIME: Broughton 39, Kinston 15

The second quarter began as a carbon copy of the first quarter as Broughton began on a 7-0 run to make it a 27-10 lead over the defending 2-A State Champions. For the Caps, the big shot during the spurt was a three pointer by Devonte Graham.

Kinston finally got on the board thanks to a Mike Tyson free throw which made it 27-11 with 6:06 to play in the half. The Vikings just did not get anything going on offense during the second stanza as they looked very out of confused on the offensive end. Broughton, however had no issues finding their offensive stride as Cyrus Stewart hit a big three to increase the Capitals lead to 32-12 with 3:57 left in the half.

After Broughton went up by 20, they did not score for almost two minutes, but neither did Kinston which helped the Capitals maintain the lead until Connor Strickland scored five quick points to give Broughton a 39-15 halftime lead.

END 1Q: Broughton 21, Kinston 10

Broughton got out to a very quick start as they opened the game on a 7-0 run using a Devonte Graham bucket and a Staats Battle three to help extend the lead. With the Caps up by seven, Kinston head coach, Wells Gulledge called for a timeout with his team having yet to score at the 6:06 mark of the quarter.

Following the timeout, the Vikings clawed their way back into the contest thanks to a balanced scoring effort as four different players aided the cause for Kinston. With a little over two minutes left in the quarter, the Capitals led by four, that's when Battle hit his third three of the quarter to open the game up. Parrish Crowder added four late points to give the Capitals a 11 point lead after one.


Broughton is the host school at the Glaxo and on their home court on Monday night, they gave undefeated Middle Creek all they could handle. For the Caps on Monday, they took the game to overtime before the Mustangs pulled out a two point win. Broughton had yesterday off and they return to the Glaxo and Holliday Gym to take on a Kniston team that won the state championship last year.

Kinson played probably their worst game of the young season yesterday afternoon as Riverside took advantage of the Vikings sloppy play. However, Kinston made a run late in the game, down 51-36 with just over six minutes left in the game, the Vikings found their touch from the outside as Josh Dawson caught fire and scored a many of his 21 points in the final stanza.

Both teams can get up and down the court so it should be fun to watch in our third game of the day.
