MEN'S BASKETBALL: Lambton 87-67 Conestoga
The Lambton College Lions took home an 87-67 win over Conestoga on Tuesday night in Kitchener. The Lions were led, as has been the case many times over the past four years, by Branden Padgett and his 19 points.
At 3:31 of the first quarter Padgett squared up from behind the arc to drill his second three ball of the game and in the process passed his friend and longtime teammate Mike Lucier for top spot in Lambton scoring history. He ended the game with 1,496 career points.
Branden was presented with the game ball after the match and will end the season in the OCAA All-Time Scorers Top-Ten.
Xavian Edwards led Lambton on the defensive end with 13 boards to go along with ten points. Jason Watts scored 17, Jaquan Barrett-Smith 13, Keith Laryea nine, Journee Joseph six, Tyvell Peters six, Jason Marshell three on his return from his serious knee injury, Tyler Grevers two and Dwayne Lambert-Cadore two to go along with five helpers.
Padgett and the Lions now focus on a weekend doubleheader in Sault Ste. Marie against the Cougars.
