Kellington breaks out in weekend wins

Sardis Falcon Evan Kellington torched the Delta Pacers and Kelowna Owls for 39 points and nine three pointers.

The Sardis secondary school senior boys basketball team improved to 12-0 with weekend wins over two top-20 teams.

On Friday, the Falcons traveled to Delta and beat the Delta secondary school Pacers 84-64.

Senior Evan Kellington had a breakout game, sniping six three pointers and finishing with a career high 22 points.

Sardis had the lead up to 35 points at one point in the third quarter.

Eric Rogers led the offence with 25 points, with Hayden Lejeune and Cam Servatius adding 14 and 13 points respectively.

The Falcons returned home to host the Kelowna Owls Saturday afternoon, downing the visitors 98-83.

Kellington had another outstanding game with 17 points, including three more treys. Over the two weekend games, Sardis shooters drained 19 three-point shots.

Lejeune and Rogers continued to establish themselves as maybe the best 1-2 punch in the province, combining for 43 points against Kelowna.

Standing six-foot-four, newcomer Brayden Speaks-Chinda came off the bench with 13 points.

Sardis has two tough road games later this week.

They play the No. 8 ranked Sir Winston Churchill Bulldogs Thursday and the No. 5 ranked Burnaby South Rebels Friday.
