Bruins reap third-place victory
SPRING VALLEY – The St. Bede Bruins went 3-1 in the 39th annual Colmone Classic, claiming the third-place trophy along the way, by outlasting the Plano Reapers, 59-47, Saturday night at Hall High School’s Red Devil Gymnasium.
The Bruins excelled over the course of the game’s first half. St. Bede led, 15-7, after eight minutes, then really put their collective foot on the offensive accelerator, pouring in 24 second-quarter points – on 10-13 shooting (3-4 treys) from the field – to take a seemingly commanding 25-point lead, 39-14, at the break.
“It’s the best we could be, is 3-1,” said SB coach Mike Kilmartin of his team’s finish in the Colmone Classic, following a loss earlier in the week to Mendota in pool play. “We played a great first half. Then we played tentative. We played not to lose.
