SHERIDAN - The Sheridan boys' basketball team came out firing on Tuesday night.

Riding a four-game losing streak, the Class 2A Blackhawks shot a blistering 61 percent from the field and wasted little time running past visiting Class A Bethesda Christian 67-56.

Four players finished in double figures for the Blackhawks with Brock Kitchel leading the way with 16 points on 5 of 9 efficiency from the field. He drilled a pair of 3-pointers and was a perfect 4-for-4 from the free-throw line.

Chris Roberts was right behind Kitchel with 14 points on 5 of 7 shooting from the floor. He was 2-for-2 from both the foul line and beyond the arc.

Jacob Chesney and Elliott Barker each added 12 points with the latter going 5 of 6 from the court. Chesney also had a team-high nine rebounds as Sheridan jumped out to a 22-11 lead at the end of the first quarter.

The Blackhawks piled it on in the second quarter to take a 38-22 lead. Sheridan, which was 8 of 14 from long range, scored 29 points in the second half to keep their lead intact.

Chesney had a team-high seven assists in the game and Roberts grabbed four steals with Barker added three.

Sheridan (6-15) has one more regular-season game on their schedule before heading off to Sectional 39 next week. The Blackhawks will host 2A No. 3 Frankton (20-2) on Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
