Shoremen gain split with Fords; pass last year’s win total

CHESTERTOWN — Senior guard Kedrick Frink scorched the nets for a career high of 32 points to almost single-handedly defeat Haverford here on Jan. 31. He played 39 minutes of the 40-minute game.

No other Shoreman scored more than seven points in the 51-44 Centennial Conference victory, which avenged a 68-53 loss early in the season at Haverford.

Washington picked up its fourth win under first-year head coach Corey Begly, which surpassed last year’s win total.

Trailing 13-10 after a Gaven Marr 3-pointer with 6 minutes, 43 seconds remaining in the half capped a 12-3 Haverford run, Washington scored the next 11 points to head into the locker room with a 21-13 lead.

Frink scored 13 points in the first half on 6-of-11 shooting from the field.

Davis Bland’s three with 3:44 to play in the half put the home team in front, 15-13, and Frink completed the scoring with a jumper with 38 seconds to play before intermission.

A Frank dunk followed by a Bland bucket to open the second half boosted Washington’s lead to 25-13.

Haverford (4-17, 1-13 CC) scored 21 of the next 30 points to deadlock at 34 on a Nicholas Stewart layup with just under eight minutes to play.

Another Frink three — he was 2-of-4 from outside the arc — restored Washington’s lead for good, 37-34, with 6:54 remaining.

The Fords closed to 41-40 with three minutes and change to go, but their comeback attempt was short-circuited when Washington’s men ran off the next seven points, punctuated by a Zack Skrocki triple with all but 38 seconds elapsed.

Washington (4-17, 2-12 CC) led in points off turnovers (12-0), transition points (6-0) and bench points (5-2).

The Shoremen committed a season-low five turnovers, compared to 17 for their opponents.

The 44 points they allowed also was a season low.

Haverford dominated under the glass, 47-24, led by Logan Brown’s game-best 16 rebounds, and outscored the home team in second-chance points, 11-0.

Stewart (16 points), Brown (11 points) and Marr (10 points, with eight in the first half) scored in double figures for the Fords.

NEXT UP: The Shoremen travel to McDaniel on Tuesday, Feb. 6. The next home game is 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10 against Dickinson; it’s Senior Day.
