Senior forward Matthew Garside led the way for Kings Park with six triples, a pair of field goals and six free throws for 28 points in the 63-48 League III victory. Teammates Matthew Lyman banked 12 and Thomas Matonti netted 8.
The win lifts Kings Park to 5-1 in league play, 7-5 overall as East Islip falls to 2-5 in the division.
