Spanaway Lake Sentinels basketball head coach Ken Leise was smiling from ear to ear while waiting for his players to enter the visitors locker room at Paul Stilnovich Pavilion following a convincing 63-47 win against the Rogers Rams.
The victory improved the Sentinels record to 4-2 overall, but that wasn't what Leise was most excited about.
"It's been a long time since we've won here (at Rogers High School). I couldn't even tell you how long it has been. We had a good chance three years ago and we had a good chance last year. They've just had our number. We just played so well tonight," Leise said. "Our best player and leading scorer (Braxton Tucker) was out tonight and we still got it done. Having Braxton out gave everybody else a chance to contribute in different ways and step up tonight. We are excited about the win."
Sentinels' sharpshooter Myles Springer scored a game-high 23 points. For more on this game, check out the sports section in the Dec. 19 edition of The Herald.
