On Wednesday, Jan. 21, the boys JV basketball team faced the Lowell Red Devils and came out victorious.

Some of the players were intimidated by Lowell’s team.

“Lowell has a lot of good players, so it was a tough game.” Ryan Davidson (10) said.

Well, it was a tough start to the game indeed. The boys left the first half losing, with a score of 4-9. With the fans cheering in the stands, the boys became more motivated.

“I thought the boys finished really well. The second half went really well. We got off to a sore start, but going into the second half, we were able to knock down some shots from some key scorers from the other team.  [The key players that game were] Austin Atkins (10), Nicholas Bandura (10), Norell Smith (10) and Joseph Graziano (10), just to name a few.” Mr. Dave Milausnic, Math, said.

Ending second half, the boys had a winning score of 27-20.

“Coach told us we need to get better at the little things. And personally, I need to just play well on both ends of the floor at all times,” Davidson said.

Despite the fact they were losing through the first half, the boys won with a overall score of 45-34.
