Schoolcraft claimed both parts of a varsity doubleheader at home Friday, defeating Delton Kellogg 71-33 in boys action and 58-40 in girls play. The Eagles took their first SAC Valley division contests with big scoring efforts from Lydia Goble and Trenton Lomason, getting 28 and 23 points, respectively.
The boys game was never in doubt, with a 26-6 score by the end of the first quarter and a 51-16 mark at halftime. Lomason, a transfer over the summer from Vicksburg, hit seven three-pointers. Kobe Clark and Riley Piper both scored 12 points. Delton Kellogg’s best was 11 by Josh Lyons. It was Schoolcraft’s first game of the season, meanwhile DK drops to 0-2.
The Panthers opened the girls game with a three-pointer, then surrendered a 10-0 run to Schoolcraft. Delton Kellogg got back within four by the end of the first quarter and briefly reclaimed the lead in the second, but the Eagles carried a 27-15 advantage into halftime. The Panthers narrowly won the third quarter 19-16, but Schoolcraft put the contest out of reach in the fourth.
Goble’s 28 point effort featured six three-pointers. Kennedy Leighton added 12 in the victory. Lillian Howard topped Delton Kellogg with 13 points. Schoolcraft’s girls improve to 4-0 with Delton Kellogg dropping to 2-1.
Both the Delton Kellogg boys and girls return to action at Hackett Catholic next Friday. The Schoolcraft girls hope to avenge their volleyball regional final defeat Tuesday at Bronson. The Eagle boys and girls both host Lawton Friday.
