The loss was only Lancaster’s second of the season and the first in district play. The Devils are 10-2 overall and 1-1 in the league.

Monte Gould couldn’t miss from outside last Friday, hitting seven three-pointers to do most of the damage for the Drifters. Gould sank three from the cheap seats in the first quarter to help give Colonial Beach a 15-10 start.

Lancaster rallied with five points from Tyler Colding and four each from Taj Smith and Keondra Owens during an 18-8 run in the second quarter to take a 28-23 lead at the half.

After trading shots for a 15-15 third quarter, Colonial Beach took advantage of Lancaster’s foul troubles with a 13-8 run in the final quarter to knot the game 51-51 at the buzzer. Colding, who led Lancaster with 23 points, fouled out with just over two minutes to play in regulation.

The Drifters got five points from Paris Muse in overtime and sank five of nine free throws to outscore the Devils, 12-7.

Gould led all scorers with 24 points and Keane Foster added 11.

Although Colding was Lancaster’s only double-digit scorer, the Devils did get scoring from eight shooters. Ricky Gibson scored eight before fouling out and Trevon Taylor hit for seven before fouling out.

Smith scored 15 points and Gibson nine last Wednesday when the Devils picked up a district opening win, 45-39, over Washington & Lee.

Lancaster jumped to an early lead with a 14-6 first quarter and an 11-7 run in the second to go up 25-13 at the half. Neither team could find the basket in the third with W&L outscoring the Devils, 8-5. The Eagles put up 19 points in a high-scoring fourth.

Kwame Gray and Terrin Dickerson scored eight points each to lead W&L.

The Devils will travel to Rappahannock tomorrow night (January 18) and visit Northumberland Tuesday, January 22.

In JV games, Lancaster lost its Northern Neck District opener against Washington & Lee, then picked up a win over Colonial Beach to get off to a 1-1 start in league competition.

After multiple ties and lead changes, the Eagles pulled away with late-game free throws to get by the Devils, 44-36, last Wednesday.

Marco Logan led Lancaster with 11 points and six rebounds. Tyrell Henderson contributed nine points, nine rebounds and four steals.

Lancaster overcame a 16-point halftime deficit to beat Colonial Beach, 48-41, last Friday.

Freshman Rasul Henderson hit five of six three-pointers in the second half and put up 17 points to lead the Devils in the late-game comeback.

The Drifters led 18-5 after the first quarter and 29-13 at the half, but a tough Devil defense, led by guards Darrien Doggett, DaVante Stewart and Tyrell Henderson, held Colonial Beach to 12 points in the second half.

Doggett contributed 15 points on the night and had a season high six assists.
