Last Friday, the ILS JV Boys Basketball team hosted Riviera Prep in a non-conference matchup. The Royal Lions Boys JV Basketball team earned their first win of the season, with a 45-29 win over Riviera Prep.

The JV team had yet to win a game so far this season, dropping their first three. However, that changed on Friday.

The boys started off slow, scoring only seven points in the 1st quarter, but, they held Riviera to just eight points.

The 2nd quarter was a different story. ILS started to pull away, scoring 14 points, led by Freshman Alexander Toledo’s four three pointers. Toledo finished with 19 points, knocking down five three-pointers in his best game so far this season.

In the 3rd quarter, the ILS defense locked down on Riviera, holding them to just three points. The Royal Lionss took a 10 point lead heading into the 4th.

In the fourth, JV extended the lead, scoring 16 points in the final quarter, led by sophomore captain Chris Perez-Abreu, who scored eight points.

Following a very strong performance, the boys will host St.Brendan on Friday, December 13th at 6:00 PM.
