[] – Terron Welch dropped 41 points to lead the Linden Technical Institute (LTI) to an 84-34 win over Mackenzie High School (MHS) on Wednesday evening at the Mackenzie Hard Court.
Welch was a one man army, getting to rim at will and hitting jumpers with regularity as MHS could not figure out a way to cool the hot hand of Welch.

The fact that none of Mackenzie High Schools usual offensive players managed to score double figures speaks of the mammoth meltdown they endured. Kerlon Cadogan had eight points while Revon Bradford and Lennox Henry finished with six points apiece.

MHS simply could not convert on their offensive possessions and fell victim to their high turnover rate.

Though low-scoring, the third place game provided more of a competition Christianburg/Wismar Secondary School (CWSS) edging New Silver City Secondary 40-36 as Daniel Lee put in 12 and Akinni Wilson 10 points. Donovan Paddy scored 12 points for New Silver City.

Welch was adjudged Scoring Champion and Most Valuable Player of the final for his individual performance that also included nine rebounds and 10 steals. Welch also collected a ‘Most Assist’ in the Final prize.
