The Laconia Middle School boys' A-team played two games this week and managed to come away with a split decision. On Tuesday the team traveled to Winnisquam to take on an undermanned Bears squad. Laconia's speed was too much for Winnisquam to handle as they posted a 43-18 victory. Ryan Paiva led all scorers with 14 points and 8 rebounds. Center Jacob Miner had a career day, dropping 11 points and pulling in 4 boards. Also playing big on the glass were Caleb Patell with 5 boards and Noah Dickey with a season high 7 rebounds.
The young Sachems were home on Wednesday against a strong Bow team. Bow jumped on the Sachems early, putting the boys from Laconia in a hole they struggled to get out of for the rest of the game. Paiva had another big day with 18 points and 11 boards and shooting guard Ryan Chaisson dropped 9 points (3 for 3 from 3) but it wasn't enough as Bow left with a 48-31 win.
