Byng boys clip Konawa

Byng —    The Byng Pirates got off to a quick start with 24 first-quarter points and cruised to a 72-60 victory over the visiting Konawa Tigers on Friday night at Bill Koller Fieldhouse.

   Byng’s 24-point first-period scoring onslaught was keyed by junior Jacob Birdshead’s four 3-pointers in that period alone. He finished with a total of 16 points for the contest.

   Senior Reid Wall registered a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds to fuel the Pirates. He sank a pair of treys as well.

   “I think our kids played hard. We got into an offensive flow early,” said Byng head coach Trent Miller. “A couple of times we had a 17-point lead, but Konawa, you have to give them credit, cut it to 10 and kept battling and fighting.”

   Senior Joe Nemecek tossed in nine points and pulled down six boards, and Hunter Capps contributed seven points for the Pirates, who had an eight-point advantage at the end of one quarter and went on to a 42-33 halftime lead. Byng had a 57-45 cushion after three periods.

   Zach Snow tossed in a game-leading 20 points to spark the Tigers in a losing effort and Silas Larney, who knocked down two treys (the only 3-pointers of the game for Konawa), ended up with 16 points before fouling out.

   Haydoekeyo Tsosie, who also fouled out for the Tigers, tacked on 12 points before he exited the game with his fifth foul.

   Byng’s next action will be Tuesday at home against Atoka to close out the 2013-14 regular season. The Pirates then open district playoff action at home against Dickson next weekend.

   Meanwhile, Konawa hosts Holdenville Monday night before beginning its playoff run by hosting a Class 2A District Tournament that also includes Wewoka and Healdton.
