Alkins sparks Royals diocesan title win

MSG Varsity

 

by Elio Velez on Sat, Feb 28, 2015 12:08 AM — @eliovelez 

 

Christ the King star Rawle Alkins was having a quiet second half while opponents Xaverian was surging on a 7-0 run to take a 56-50 lead early in the fourth quarter Friday night. 

 

As he left the Royals bench after a timeout was called with 6:50 remaining, Alkins had the bitter taste of losing last year’s CHSAA Brooklyn/Queens Class AA diocesan title to Bishop Loughlin still on his mind. Alkins used that memory as motivation to showcase why he was named the league’s Most Valuable Player this season. 

 

Alkins showcased his skills on both ends of the floor to finish with 27 points and energize the Royals on a game-breaking 16-3 run to power Christ the King to a 66-59

Kinder powers Christ the King to Division Title

By Elio Velez on Wed, Feb 18, 2015 10:25 PM — @eliovelez

 

Christ the King junior Kaela Kinder usually has one of her biggest supporters sitting at his customary front row seat at mid-court. But Kaela didn’t hear the cheers Wednesday night from her father John prior to an important regular season game against Bishop Loughlin. 

 

With the Royals game against the Lions rescheduled from February 21, John Kinder had to keep his commitment to have hip surgery and missed watching his daughter play for the first time. Kaela would honor her father’s pre-game message earlier that day in a big way.  

 

Kinder, a junior forward, scored a game-high 25 points to lift Christ the King to a 69-56 victory over Bishop Loughlin and help the Royals clinch

JV beats Xaverian, improves to 8 - 3

Coming off a difficult 5 point loss at home to rival Molloy on Friday night, the Royals rebounded with a grind-it-out victory over Brooklyn's Xaverian High School. The final score, 51 - 35, is not indicative of how close of a game it was.

After being up just 31 - 29 with three minutes to play in the third quarter, the Royals stepped up their defensive intensity to increase their lead steadily.

Kclejuan Brown, Adam Leslie, and Cai-el Smith were able to trigger CK's offensive load by turning Xaverian over, and then making the most of those opportunities by converting both in the paint and from behind the three-point line. 

CK closed the quarter on a 9-0 run to go up by a score of 40 - 29. From there, the Royals never looked back.
