rhode-islandRhode Island 27 Providence County Day 26 - OT

Our Lady Roosters played host to Providence Country Day School. Last year, they beat us 31-21 so we were looking forward to seeing how both teams matched up this year.

We were able to jump out to an early lead through the first eight minutes of the game, but we allowed PCD to steal the lead away from us as the halftime score was 11-10.

The second half was a NAIL-BITER! Both teams battled each other and the lead switched back and forth until we had a three-point lead with few minutes left. Our shots couldn't fall through and PCD was able to tie the game at 23-23 by the end of regulation.

So we played a three-minute overtime period and the game continued to be tense. Our key player fouled out immediately in overtime, which forced our other starters to step up and they did. We were fortunate to get a jump ball in our favor with few seconds left, and our inbound play worked, giving Lillian K. the ball and she recorded her first game-winning shot as the time ran out in overtime. Our Lady Roosters definitely earned this 27-26 overtime win over PCD. (Contributed by Athletic Director Nathan Engel)

marie-philipMarie Philip 35 Commonwealth School 32 - OT

MPS boys team traveled to Wentworth Institute of Technology's gym, to play against Commonwealth on the basketball court which designed for college games. Three point lines were one-foot further out than our normal high school's 3-point line.

We didn't play well in first half as we were not mentally prepared. We simply missed many opportunities to outshoot Commonwealth and at the half, we led 12-10. We usually score 12 points per quarter but this game we didn't.

Going into the second half, Commonwealth scored a couple quick baskets and led by six. We fought back to keep the game close and within one minute left, Kacey Monahan sank a 3-pointer to tie the game. Commonwealth called a timeout to see if they can score but they didn't. We rebounded and got the ball back but Monahan missed the opportunity for a winning basket with four seconds left.

In overtime, we led up by three points with one minunte left and Commonwealth scored to cut our lead to one. We had to control the ball in the final minute and Commonwealth fouled on us. Monahan missed the shot, but Wesley Silva snuck in and got offensive rebound then scored an easy basket. (Contributed by Head Coach John Monahan)

CSD hosted Oakland Charter for the first time in school history. Oakland Charter is a new basketball program, so we did not know how good they were.

CSD was rolling right off the start with a 23 point first quarter and had 20 in the second. The game was getting out of hand, so we changed our focus to practice on situations and plays in the second half with a running clock. Oakland Charter tried to put up shots but they would not fall. Everyone on our team scored at least once.

Overall, the team had 20 rebounds, 20 assists, 33 steals on 48% FG shooting.

Our next focus is on Making Waves, the first league match-up of the season. It is also our first away (non-tournament) game of the season.

Our Lady Roosters hosted our first home game this season against Times Square Academy. Our girls hadn't won a game yet so we were ready to come out and play hard today in hopes of earning our first win. Times Square had a point guard who showed very good ball handling skills and good shooting form. Our coaches switched our defense immediately to contain this point guard and it worked. Our Lady Roosters was able to get contributions from three players on offense and only had a 2-point halftime lead.

Times Square grabbed the lead early in the second half and our coaches immediately called timeout to stop the momentum. Our girls made adjustments and were able to go on a big scoring run to seize the lead and hold on to it to the end, winning 25-21! The coaches were proud of our student-athletes for how they played today. We hope to build on our success in our next home game this Thursday against Providence County Day School.
