The Half Moon Bay High School varsity boys basketball team overpowered Aragon on Friday, winning 54-39 at the Burlingame Lions Club Tournament. The team finished 2-1 on the tourney.

The Cougars led throughout after ending the first quarter 15-10 on the strength of a pair of buckets each from Sean Ediger, Ben McKnight and Sean Kennedy. Overall scoring was balanced with 12 each from McKnight and Sean Ediger — who was perfect from the floor on five shots. Mykola Ediger added 11, Michael Hourani six, Kennedy five, and Drew Dorwin four. McKnight led rebounders with nine boards.

Zeke Syme got the crowd’s attention with an offensive board in traffic in the third quarter. He put it back in while getting fouled for a chance at an “and one.”

The Cougar Boys had an opportunity to avenge an early-season loss and they did just that on the strength of a game to remember from Mykola Ediger. The Cougars were playing the second of three games in the 47th annual Lions Club tourney at Burlingame High School.

Mykola’s play dominated the game, especially in the second half, when he took control of the game on both sides of the ball. He finished with 30 points, including 20 second-half tallies on 12-of-19 shooting. Nearly as important were his four assists, five steals, five blocks, and 11 boards.
