Kentridge going to state, sends Kentwood home

A boring, sloppy, slow-paced game started cookin’ in the fourth quarter, and the Conquerors did their best to steal one at Auburn High. Kentridge won, 51-41.

Trailing by 11 with four minutes remaining, Kentwood went on a 7-0 run to cut it to 42-38 with 2:36 to go.

But the Chargers’ guards would not let this one get away. Kentridge scored on four consecutive possessions, capped by Gary Bell’s putback with 1:01 remaining, to give the team a 49-41 lead, and Kentwood missed its final four shots.

Kentridge earns the No. 4 seed from the WCD to the 4A state championships starting Wednesday.
