Chester and Quincy boys basketball square offShannon MorrowSports Editor2/10/2010
With a 79-56 win over Quincy last Friday night, the Chester High School boys' basketball team improved its league record to 5-0.
The Chester Volcanoes jumped out to an 8-1 lead early in the contest, but then Quincy went on an 11-0 run to take a four-point lead. At the end of the first quarter, the score was tied at 19.
The teams played evenly early in the second quarter, but then a couple 3-pointers by Chester's Topher Taylor (Pictured right) broke Quincy's spirit. The Volcanoes outscored the Trojans 24-10 through the second period.
The first half ended with a spectacular buzzer-beater by Chester's Tyler Hernandez, who took the shot from near the sideline at half-court. After rattling hard against the glass and rim, it fell through the net, giving Chester a 43-29 lead at halftime.
