KENDALL – A big first quarter scoring burst sparked Kendall to a 68-43 victory over rival Holley this evening in a Genesee Region League boys basketball game.

Holley jumped out to a quick 8-2 lead at the outset sparked by two baskets by Corey Winter.

However, Kendall answered back with a big 19-4 scoring surge to close the period with a 21-12 lead and the Eagles were never headed.

Mookie Nauden had eight points, including a three and two lay-ups, to lead that Kendall uprising which also included threes by Will Condo and Devin Appleton along with a pair of buckets by Isaiah Brown. Back-to-back threes by Nauden and Condo ignited the uprising.

Keeping the momentum, Kendall extended the advantage to 41-23 at the half and to 59-36 at the three-quarter mark.
