— Perry-Lecompton dominated on defense for the second straight game since the winter break and pounded Santa Fe Trail, 44-29, Friday night in high school boys basketball.

"That was an impressive game," P-L coach Pat Hupfauf said. "We came to Santa Fe Trail and won by 15. We played beautiful defense, held them to 29 points. We held Silver Lake to 37 the other night, so our defense after Christmas has been something special. I'm really pleased with our defense.

"It was just a great effort. To hold somebody to 29 points is pretty special."

How tough was the Kaws' defense? The Chargers' Shane Miles was held scoreless Friday after scoring 27 points in Tuesday's 73-49 victory at Basehor-Linwood.

"We were up 8-2, and it was all downhill from there," SFT coach Brian Luther said. "Perry played good defense. They hit the boards hard. I'm disappointed with our game tonight, especially after our game Tuesday."

Clinging to a slim 17-16 lead at halftime, the Kaws outscored the Chargers 17-8 in the third quarter and 27-13 in the second half.

"I thought it was more our offense," Hupfauf said of the difference in the two halves. "Our defense was special in the first half. We held them to 16 points. They're an excellent team. They have good players. You have to defend them in the post, and it's a war. It's tough and you have to work. We can play 10 guys, and you have to have fresh horses in there.

"I don't know if we wore them down, but maybe we did."

P-L was sparked by Spencer Kennedy's double-double of 16 points and 17 rebounds. The 6-foot-7 junior snagged 20 rebounds in the Kaws' 37-34 loss to Silver Lake on Tuesday.

"He's been playing really well," Hupfauf said. "He's going to be a special player."

The Chargers were led by Cameron Babb's 15 points.

Perry-Lecompton (2-4) will play host to Bonner Springs Tuesday, while Santa Fe Trail (2-4) will take on Gardner-Edgerton in Carbondale.
