Kieran Powell

Kieran Powell grew up playing basketball around Forest Avenue elementary school. He still shoots hoops at the Verona Pool in the summer. And there were probably more than a few people in the stands of yesterday afternoon’s Verona High School boys basketball game against Montclair Kimberley Academy that wished Powell had been playing for Verona, and not MKA.

Powell, now a junior at MKA, put up 18 of the 58 points that his team had in yesterday’s game, the second highest scorer for the Montclair team.

Brian Farrell was the high scorer for Verona, with 14 points, followed by Luke Sniatkowski with 11 and Jack Denton with 8. And though Verona narrowed the point gap considerably in the third and fourth quarters, MKA still came out ahead. The final score was MKA 58, Verona 46.

The Hillbillies’ next game will be against Cedar Grove on Tuesday, January 11 at 4 p.m. at home.
