Multiple Teams · JV Boys and Varsity Girls fall but Varsity Boys win vs Math and Science Riptide


The Varsity Girls Islanders trailed at the half 28-12 after a cold shooting first half. The cold shooting could be seen as knocking the rust off after a long lay over. As the second began, the Lady Islanders needed a strong run to get back in the game. Unfortunately, the Riptide was too strong and opened the lead up to 20 points at the end of the third quarter. The Islanders gave some other players some playing time in the 4th quarter and ultimately fell 56-29. The Lady Islanders will have to regroup quickly as they face the Lowcountry Leadership Gators Friday night at 5:30 in Hollywood SC.

The varsity Boys perhaps played their most complete game so far this season. The first half was back and forthwith neither team being able to separate themselves from the other. The first half ended tied at 18 with a good defensive effort from both teams. The Islanders continued their defensive work in the 3rd quarter by holding the Riptide to 6 points. The Islander offense opened up by getting several assisted shots setting up open shots closer to the basket. Tyrus Richardson had a year high 6 assists for the Islanders on the night.  At the end of the third quarter, the Islanders led 35-24. St Johns held off the push by the Riptide in the fourth quarter eventually winning 50-35. The Islanders improve to 3-1 in the Region and face 3-0 Lowcountry Leadership Friday at 7:30 PM. This will be the first meeting between the squads since last year’s controversial Gators win where the Islanders had a 3 pointer taken off the board in a 2 point loss. A win on the road Friday would be a huge step in the right direction in the 17-18 region play. Everyone come out and support the Islanders boys and girls teams in a hostile environment.
