Playing arch rival Gilford on February 10, the team fought for a second strong victory. Led by Nick Murray, who had a season-high 12 points and 14 boards, the young Sachems would not be denied. Carter Doherty added 13 points and nine boards while point guard Jake Filgate, coming back from an ankle sprain, chipped in six points, grabbed nine rebounds, and had five assists. The team played well defensively, running a tough half court man-to-man and limiting Gilford's ability to shoot the ball. When the dust had settled, the Sachems had a 49-26 win, improving to 12-8 for the season.
