Kennedy boys went 1-1 over the weekend at the St. Paul Holiday Tournament.
The Trojans (5-4, 2-0 Tri-River League) beat St. Paul 49-31 Friday night before having their five-game win streak snapped by Triangle Lake in a 61-56 loss.
All four of Kennedys losses this season have come by single digits, a stat that is frustrating but at the same time encouraging to coach Karl Schmidtman.
We feel like we could have snuck a couple of those, but the fact that weve been right there, were competing, and we have a chance to win every game is something were excited about, he said.
Kennedy generated much of its offense against St. Paul by forcing 24 turnovers, five of which came at the hands of guard Dalton Susee.
Against the Lakers, Brett Traeger scored 17, and Jacob Lopez added a team-high 12 rebounds.
Lopez has been a key contributor early for the Trojans, averaging 14 points and 11 rebounds a game through the first nine games of the season.
