Beaufort Academy’s boys rode a hot start to pick up another key road win Tuesday, defeating Bethesda Academy 60-47 in Savannah.
The Eagles got some separation early thanks to a dominant first quarter, holding Bethesda standout Josh Quarterman off the board in the opening eight minutes and surging out to a 20-8 lead before extending the advantage to 33-20 at halftime.
The Blazers tightened the contest to just a 10-point margin at 44-34 heading into the fourth, but BA closed it out to secure the Eagles’ first win at Bethesda Academy since at least 2014.
Braydon Dineen and Sully Gay led an impressive offensive performance with 17 points each, and Amarion Wilson put up 14. But it was a duo who combined for just one point that earned praise from BA coach Nick Field after the game.
“Devonte Green and Jaxen Porter, my hit squad, wreaked havoc tonight,” Field said. “Their defense and energy set the tone.”
Beaufort Academy (22-5, 5-1) hosts Holy Trinity on Friday.
