WHITE CLOUD — Kyler Larson had another big night, and the Kent City defense continued its stellar play in Friday night’s 65-35 victory over White Cloud on the road in the Central State Activities Association Silver.
The Eagles, who have a two-game winning streak, established command from the outset, outscoring the Indians, 14-4 in the first quarter. White Cloud outscored the Eagles, 12-11 in the second period, but the Eagles still had a nine-point lead, 25-16 at the half.
Kent City had a big third quarter, outscoring the Indians, 26-9 and stretched its lead out to a 26-point margin, 51-25 entering the fourth period. The Eagles had a 14-10 margin in the final eight minutes.
“Our defense is getting better every game,” Kent City coach David Engles said. “I love our effort on that end. the offense is coming around, too.
“We made some minor adjustments at halftime that really helped us pull away in the third quarter.”
Larson burned the Indians for 32 points, the second time he’s hit that total in the last two games, while Hayden Carlson came through with 17 points.
Kent City improved its record to 6-3 overall and 4-0 in the conference. The Eagles return to action on Tuesday, January 25 hosting Newaygo.
