The Avon Park Red Devil boys’ varsity basketball team erased a 14-point first-quarter deficit and rolled to a 57-38 win over the Lake Placid Green Dragons Friday night, Dec. 13, in a game played there.

To its credit, the Lake Placid team played an outstanding first quarter, dominating the home team with a 22-8 performance in the initial eight minutes of play. Ramon Galaviz-Rinald opened the scoring with a three-point basket from the right side which caught all net as it settled through the cylinder. Kaetwon Lowe’s trey shortly thereafter gave Lake Placid an 8-0 lead. Lowe fired a pass upcourt to Marvin Sholtz who didn’t break stride as he raced to lay the ball into the basket. Scott Colley drove and put up a floating jumper to raise the score to 12-0 with 4:59 showing on the clock. Later in the period, Galaviz-Rinald looped in his second trifecta of the game, 17-4 Lake Placid with 2:00 left. Colley hit a ten-foot jumper, and a basket by Lowe completed the scoring by Lake Placid.
