Lecanto boys hoops knocks off unbeaten Chiefland 65-57

LECANTO — It was fitting that, on Lecanto’s senior night, it was Panther seniors, along with a freshman, who played an indispensable role in helping their team accomplish something no other Chiefland opponent has done against the Indians this season: get a win.

Freshman Kaine McColley poured in 15 second-half points, while seniors Ronnie Crowe and Thomas Vilardi added 11 apiece in the half to lead their Panthers to a 65-57 come-from-behind victory in the LHS gym Friday.

Lecanto (13-7) trailed 33-24 at the half, and at times looked overmatched during the early going against Chiefland’s speedy guards. While playing without leading Indians scorer Kyle Weeks, the Chiefs combined to go 5-for-5 behind the 3-point line in the opening half.

Paced by senior Deshawn Roland (team-high 17 points on the night), junior G’Angelo McClendon (15 points, four steals) and sophomore Patrick Jackson (16 points), CHS shot 68 percent (13 for 19) from the field in the first half.
