When a team has won as many games in a row as the Indians from Lenape, every game is a challenge for both teams on the court. Pleasantville was the next team on Lenape’s schedule to see if they would be the teams to give the Indians their first loss of the season. In order for that to happen, it would be in front of the packed crowd during the last day of the Olympic-Cape Challenge at Winslow High School. Despite 35 points received from the Greyhounds’ Kamron Warner, Lenape’s team effort was enough to keep their win streak in tact. The Indians would pick up the 69-60 win.
After winning nineteen in a row and counting for Lenape, there would be just 4 games remaining on their regular schedule. Even though any team can win a game when the entire team is involved, the remaining games on their schedule would be a tough test in keeping their record clean from the loss column. Camden Catholic, Haddonfield and Pennsauken are three of those teams have the record and talent to try and upset Lenape before the post season begins.
The Indians expanded on their first quarter lead by 10 points leading 32-22 at the break. The Greyhounds made a run at the Indians in the third quarter, but Lenape stood tall to all of their challenges. Kraig Peters finished with a team high 21 points, David Walker added 16 and Jason Thompson dropped in 14 points for Lenape. Pleasantville relied on the shooting of Kamron Warner who could drain the three ball at will finished with a game high 35 points.
