HYATTSVILLE — Saturday morning in a Capital Hoops Summer League game at DeMatha Catholic High School, the Silver Spring-based Blake Bengals (0-9) took on the Saints of St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes (7-0) from Alexandria, Virginia. It wasn’t pretty, as the Saints basically dominated the majority of the game and won by a lopsided score of 102-45.
It seemed like Blake didn’t have a chance, as the Bengals were a winless team going up against an undefeated squad. The Saints made shot after shot, and dunk after dunk. The score at halftime was 54-24.
Blake’s Raef Hetherington carried his team through the crushing defeat, putting up a game-high 21 points, nailing four three-pointers, and forcing three turnovers.
“I try to push everybody else,” Hetherington said. “Bring them up with me, try and get everybody to go around, but sometimes we come short. So I just got to do what I got to do.”
