Collier County schools dominated the third annual Lee/Collier County Bash Saturday at Lely, sweeping all five games against Lee County teams.

An eight-point deficit at halftime proved too much to overcome for the Mariner Tritons Saturday night against Lely, which claimed a 65-56 victory to close out the Bash a perfect 5-0.

Rodney Hunter struck for a game-high 27 points to go with four assists in leading the Tritons (8-7), who travel to Cape Coral on Tuesday for a district rematch.

Rick Moore added 11 points with five rebounds and Alex Sillie 10 points.

"After two weeks off we had some rust," said Tritons coach James Harris. "We were very sluggish at the start and made a run when we got our second wind. They (Lely) made a 10-2 run at the end of the first half that got us down and it was an uphill battle after that."

Nick Talko and Cleaford Milien led the Trojans with 16 and 15 points, respectively. Leroy Greenidge added 13 points.

Mariner 9 14 11 22 - 56

Lely 13 18 15 19 - 65

Mariner 56 - Patton 2, Moore 11, Nash 6, Hunter 27, Sillie 10. Totals: 20 9-14 56.

3PG: Bott 2, Bober 2, Ronquette 1, Greenidge 1.

Golden Gate 53, Cape Coral 48: Cape Coral came up short in its bid to win its appearance in the Lee/Collier Bash Saturday afternoon at Lely, falling to Golden Gate.

David Flynn and Chase Galuzny did their part for the Seahawks with 19 and 14 points, respectively.

"It was an even game, back and forth," said Seahawks coach Tom Kenna. "We played hard and tough. It was good to get back on the court."

The Seahawks (8-7) host Mariner Tuesday night.

Cape Coral 12 11 13 12 - 48

Golden Gate 13 9 16 15 - 53
