SILVER SPRING — The visiting Springbrook Blue Devils varsity boys basketball team ended the regular season on a high note as they dispatched the Blake Bengals 85-56 and senior guard Matthew Balanc scored his 1000th point.
But for every high there is a low: shortly after making his milestone bucket, Balanc exited the game at the start of the third quarter with an unspecified injury and did not return.
The scrappy Bengals squad held up tonight against a strong Blue Devils squad. Blake came in with a losing record of 8-13, while Springbrook entered with an impressive 17-4 record.
Blue Devils senior forward Cameron Rucker started the game with a three-pointer, to which Bengals sophomore guard Raef Hetherington responded with a three-point bucket of his own.
