MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21
Dragons 18, Spartans 14: The Dragons remained undefeated in the young season as they managed a four-point win over the shorthanded Spartans. "Give the Spartans credit," said League Director Geo Thomas, "They only had five players but they played hard despite being tired!" The Dragons were down six at one point but star forward Lucas Prout scored six of his eight points in the second quarter to erase an 8-2 deficit. Luke Rozycki and Asher Boehm added four points each for the Dragons while Jack Morden earned his first assist of the season. The Spartans, playing without three of their top four draft picks, were paced by the strong play of Katherine Apkarian and Shaylan Kalkhande (6pts each) and the rebounding of Patrick Rollins.
Wolves 16, Raiders 12: The Wolves notched their first win of the season Monday with a hard-fought win over the Raiders. Wolves rookie Quinn Schairer scored six of her eight points in the first quarter, helping the Wolves to an 8-4 lead at halftime. Wolves forward William Crook led all players with six rebounds as Zack Wiesseler added four points. For the Raiders, Carson Tobin had a magnificent game scoring six points and racking up four steals. Isaac Stern pitched in with four points while teammate Teddy Drazin had many key assists throughout the game. The Raiders, now 0-2, have played well this season losing by a combined five points in two games.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12
Cougars 15, Panthers 14 (2OT): Cougar guard Ben Madlangbayan sank a free-throw in sudden death-double overtime to give the Cougars a 15-14 win in the Prep Division Championship game Saturday at Berkshire Middle School. It provided the ultimate conclusion to what was the most competitive game of the season.
The game was tied at 12 entering the first overtime period. Panthers guard Joey Serbinski scored just seconds into the extra period giving the Panthers a 14-12 lead. But Cougar forward Carter Storr hit a beautiful fade-away jumper on the next possession, tying the score at 14 and pushing the contest into sudden death. "The game had so many lead changes you really had no pulse on who was going to win," said League Director Geo Thomas, "It was really exciting!"
Ashton Bender led the Panthers offense with six points while teammate Brycen Roy tallied four steals, four rebounds and a big first quarter basket. The Cougars had five of their eight players score and were paced by Madlangbayan's six points. Leo Piper added three assists for the Cougars. Box Score
