The Kenai Central basketball teams split with Colony in two thrilling games Friday at Kenai in Northern Lights Conference action.
The Kenai boys won 53-50 in overtime, while the girls lost 37-34.
Kenai boys coach Ken Felchle praised the improved defensive effort of the team after a tough recent six-game stretch in which the Kardinals went 2-4.
“When the defense goes, that’s when you’re in trouble, and that’s our foundation,” Felchle said. “We said tonight that we have to get back to that foundation, and then everything after that, we’ll build on it.”
