Kenyon Elliott, Jake Kelly, lead the way for Bishop McDevitt in win over Trinity and make a Huge statement for the local hoop scene in Central PA!

CAMP HILL— The Peyton Walker Foundation’s “Beat Goes on Hoops Challenge” brought a sold out crowd to Trinity High School Saturday night. The Trinity Shamrocks came in with an undefeated record, and the Bishop McDevitt Crusaders were looking to give them their first loss.

The Crusaders executed right from the tip as they went on a 7-0 run before Trinity called their first timeout. Bishop McDevitt held Trinity’s star sophomore, Chance Westry, to 0 points until just under 3 minutes in the first quarter. Trinity came within 2 with just over a minute left, which is the closest they came to a lead all game. The Crusaders ended the first quarter with a 17-11 lead.

The second quarter is when Bishop McDevitt’s Kenyon Elliott and Jake Kelly started to take over the game. Elliott was responsible for another Crusader 7-0 run to start the second quarter. At this point, the only thing keeping Trinity in the game was their foul shooting, in which Chance Westry scored his first 5 points at the foul line. But the Crusaders were too sharp from behind the arc as they shot 8 for 12. Bishop McDevitt went into halftime up 16.

The sharp shooting for Bishop McDevitt continued in the second half as Jake Kelly hit his 3rd three of the game. Kelly scored 9 points in the third to put the Crusaders a 51-34 lead at the end of the third quarter.

Although Bishop McDevitt did a good job holding Chance Westry to a quiet game thus far, Westry still managed to score 16 points going into the final quarter. But at the start of the fourth, Westry opened with a steal and dunk. But it was not enough to give the Shamrocks a run. Kenyon Elliott and Jake Kelly each had 23 points in the big 66-52 win. “It’s just hard work paying off”, Elliott said, “we all work hard in practice, and we practice how we play.” Marcus Beckett led Trinity with 22 points, and he scored 9 of those points in the fourth.

Bishop McDevitt moves to 9-2, and they get set to face Cedar Cliff at home on Tuesday, January 7th at 7:30 PM. “We should just bring the same intensity,” Elliott said, “they have some good players, so it’s going to be a good one.” Trinity suffers their first loss of the season at 8-1, and they are on the road at Steelton-Highspire on Tuesday, January 7th at 7:30 PM.
