Maryvale star Ray Blackwell’s bid to become a 1,000-point career scorer for the Flyers was cut short Tuesday night by a power outage.
Blackwell, a four-year starter for coach Mark Kensy, will be stuck at 996 points for a while because Maryvale’s nonleague game against JFK was called in the third quarter. By then Blackwell had 18 points.

Maryvale was leading, 44-33, with 5:25 left in the third. The game will be completed at Maryvale today, resuming at 6:30 p.m.
