Gonzaga Prep 72, Kentridge 60
The Bullpups pulled away with a big third quarter after the teams had played even for the first half. Tied at 38 as the third quarter began, Gonzaga Prep built an eight-point advantage entering the fourth quarter. The final score was the biggest lead the Bullpups enjoyed.
Chris Sarbaugh scored a game-high 22 points for Gonzaga Prep, the same number as Chargers’ Gonzaga-bound guard Gary Bell. Sarbaugh also had eight rebounds.
Parker Kelly added 20 points and four assists for the Bullpups, and Stephen Ferraro scored 15 points and grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds.
Sarbaugh’s 22 points were efficient. He made 10 of 18 field goals and two of four free throws. Bell needed 19 shots, of which he made six (and just one of seven three-pointers). Bell also was 9-for-12 from the free throw line.
