LMS A boys' grab back-to-back wins

Down two of its starters, the bench for the LMS boys' A team stepped up big in earning a decisive 58-17 win over Alton on February 8. Ryan McCrea had a banner day with 14 points and six rebounds. Drew Muzzey chipped in 13 points and four boards to go along with four steals. Parker Minor also played well dishing out five assists with picking off three Alton passes. Defensively, Christian Gaspa and Nick Drouin had three steals each. "It was nice to see the younger kids get some significant playing time and make some good contributions" said coach Rod Roy.
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.
