Leroy's heroics help Henley pin first league loss on Pirates

Prep Boys

KLAMATH FALLS ' Scott Leroy carried Henley to its sixth Skyline Conference win and helped hand Phoenix its first conference defeat Tuesday, 70-63.

Leroy, a 5-foot-9 junior wing, saved the best for last as he picked up all of his 14 points in the final quarter.

I challenged the kids with about seven minutes to go and down by 10, said Henley coach Jess Schefstrom. I saw a spark in Scott's eye and thought, 'Well there's one kid that doesn't want to lose.'

The Hornets (6-3 Skyline) held a 33-26 lead at halftime only to see the Pirates outscore them 23-11 in the third quarter.

We came out tentative at the start of the game, said Phoenix coach Kevin Dixon. We made some adjustments at halftime, were strong in the third, but I think we used so much energy trying to come back we just ran out of gas in the fourth quarter.

Brett Ellis led Phoenix (8-1 Skyline) with 20 points, including four 3-pointers, and Brady Rhodes had 13 rebounds.

Henley's Dan Martin led all scorers with 21 points.
