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)

rhode-islandRhode Island - Our Lady Roosters played American School for the Deaf's girls basketball team for the second time in six days, and we were looking to improve upon our performance from last weekend. Our girls struggled to contain ASD's one-girl attack in the first quarter as we got outscored 11-0 before finally getting on the scoreboard with four points to end the first quarter.

We slowly started to eat away at their lead, coming as close as four points in the third quarter before ASD's primary ball handler came on fire again and scored 10 of her game-high 22 points in the last 10 minutes of the game. RISD lost our scoring touch and struggled to maintain our offensive tempo in the fourth quarter as ASD won the game by the final score of 26-13.

The coaches saw some positive things and we are glad our girls improved compared to last weekend. We will next participate in the MKSD Basketball Tip-Off Tournament against three other ESDAA Division 2 schools which will be a good preview of the ESDAA Tournament next February.

Yosemite 66 Fremont 34 - 13th - 16th place semifinals

Our game against Yosemite (Oakhurst) was the only matchup against a Division 2 team (CSD is in Division 6), they had only eight players, but five of them were between 6’0” and 6’2” so they were a tall and big team. We started slow and did not play well as the tip-off time was at 10:30 in the morning. We finally woke up and played well in the fourth quarter but it was too late.

YHS 16-17-14-19 = 66
CSD   5--6--7-16 = 34

Halftime - Yosemite led 35-11.

Top Scorers:

Fremont 62 Garces - 15th/16th Place

We did not want to leave the tournament in 16th place without a win, and exploded in the first quarter for 21 points. Our defense did not allow Garces any momentum to come back in the second half despite their trying to push the tempo.

Overall, the coaches were proud of the girls for having two practices and five games on our first week of basketball after the fall break. The team improved after each one of our four games over the weekend.

GHS   7-10--4--8 = 29
CSD 21-10-13-18 = 62

Halftime - Fremont led 31-17.

Top scorers:
Jade Dawson - 24 points
