What a game for the JV Cougars yesterday! The JV Cougars played their best game of the season yesterday, getting the win against Kearsarge to improve to 9-4 on the season. The JV Cougars netted 49 points while holding Kearsarge to JUST 23 POINTS! The Cougars let up just 6 points in the second half, two field goals in the third, and only two free throws in the 4th. This is beyond an amazing feat. To not give up a field goal for an entire quarter is such a testament to the hard work the guys put in yesterday. Coach is proud and the players should be too. Hopefully they can keep this rolling with two tough games Wednesday and Thursday.
On the offensive end, Zach Burgess lead the way with 11 points including three more three pointers. Malachi Page and Joe Gutwein both played steady with 8 points apiece. Noah Stewart had one of his better games of the season putting in 6 points and 1 bloody nose. Noah's energy on the boards and on defense were a big part of what the Cougars did yesterday. Owen McGuire chipped in 5 in another start, while Alex Heck chipped in 4. Ethan Kinney, Jake Daniels, and Zander Carignan also got in on the scoring.
The Cougars had an 8 point lead at halftime and exploded with a momentum charged run to start the third quarter. They outscored Kearsarge 13-4 in that frame and never looked back, playing smart, slow and steady offense, and tenacious active defense. Great job Cougars!
The Cougars next play Bishop Brady at home at 5 on Wednesday and travel to Manchester West for a 430 game on Thursday.
