Boys Basketball

marie-philipMarie Philip 54 Waldorf School of Mass Bay 37

In first half, our boys didn't play well to start the game. Turnovers and cold shooting kept us in a close game with Waldorf School of Mass Bay. Our boys went into the locker room at the half with a 18-10 lead. We knew that we should have played better than this.

Reviewing and planning better, the boys came out in the second half with much better shooting and cut down on turnovers. We built a big lead and then Waldorf started to press against our second and third string players. They refused to give up so we had to put back some starters to keep our lead all the way to the buzzer.

Dylan Christoffels found his shooting form and led Marie Philip with 20 points, 11 rebounds, and three assists. Kacey Monahan and Kyle Florio added 15 points and 11 points respectively. It was a good victory on our first home game and put us a win column in our league. (Contributed by Head Coach John Monahan)
