The Kildonan boys basketball team started a new season with a bang yesterday, by playing a great game against a very good Dutchess Home travel team!
In the season opener for both teams, a match up of similar styles developed – fast paced, coast to coast, and aggressive!
The game stayed within three points most of the way, with the lead changing three times in the course of play! Though we lost forward Isaiah Khalil to a shoulder injury early in the second half; Thomas Covey came on to “step up” and help us stay in the game. The Kodiaks were led by captain John Bajda (25 points/12 rebounds), and point guard Kendrick Johnson (15 points, 10 steals). Isaiah managed 11 points and 10 rebounds before coming out of the game, Ray Carito did an outstanding job in stepping up to a new level of play, and Jack Roy teamed up with Kendrick top create opportunities on offense, and steals on defense!
This should be an exciting season!
