Manchester Academy’s Dylan Dendy and Parks Poe did their best LeBron James-Anthony Davis imitation the past Friday night as the duo scored a game-high 21 points apiece to lead the Mavericks to a 60-37 blowout victory over rival Benton Academy. Dendy also hauled in a team-high eight rebounds and had three steals while Poe grabbed four rebounds, three steals and dished out three assists in the 23-point win, pushing the Mavericks’ record to 9-3. The two teams opened the game matching each other basket for basket, as Poe opened the ame with a hot hand. Keeping Benton right in stride with the Mavs was guard Ben Boggan who nailed two NBA-caliber three pointers in a first quarter that ended with MA leading 11-10. The second quarter proved to be the undoing for the Raiders as Boggan cooled down just as Dendy was heating up. Dendy scored nine second quarter points to lead the Mavs to a 19-6 quarter advantage and a 30-16 halftime lead. Manchester continued to pour it on in the third quarter, holding the Raiders to six points again while adding 14 of their own to take a 44-22 lead into the fourth and final frame. Boggan hit another timely three-pointer for the Raiders midway through the fourth quarter and J.B. Middleton added one from deep as well, but the lead proved to be unsurmountable and the Mavs cruised to victory down the stretch. Following Dendy and Poe in scoring for the Mavs were Tyler Bardwell with seven points (eight rebounds), Reece Ragland with three and Tyler Johnson, Will Peeler, Tyler Stevens and Jon Riley Poe each with two points. Wil Saxton was the high man for the Raiders, posting a double-double with 12 points, 12 rebounds and three assists. Middleton joined Saxton in double figures with 10, followed by Boggan with nine, Austin Moore with five and Landon Lowery with one (five rebounds, 2 steals). Manchester traveled to Greenville Christian Tuesday night and will host Porter’s Chapel Thursday. Benton hits the road twice this week traveling to Porter’s Chapel on Tuesday and St. Joe on Thursday.
