MONTEGO BAY, St James — Defending champions Herbert Morrison Technical took over the lead in Zone One in the ISSA Western Conference Boys Under-14 basketball and secured a semi-final place after beating Cornwall College 38-25 in a rain-affected game played at Cornwall College on Monday.

The win saw Herbert Morrison improve to seven points from their four games, three more than Cornwall College and St James High, who both have a game in hand in the race for second place in the zone.

Holland High, who have won all six games played so far, lead Zone Two with 12 points, five more than second-placed Brown's Town High, who have a game in hand. Muschett High are a point behind.

On Monday, the start of the game was pushed back due to early afternoon rains and then held up later because of another downpour, but the defending champions outscored the hosts in the second half to seal the win.

Kyle Fraser scored 15 points and had six steals for Herbert Morrison, while Samuel Reynolds scored eight points and had six rebounds.

Dantae McBean scored nine points and had seven rebounds for Cornwall College while Shemar Martin scored eight points and had 11 rebounds and 12 steals.
