Cody Tetreault is making the most of his opportunities for the Wilton-Lyndeborough boys’ basketball team, and the Warriors are thriving off his success. Relegated to being a role-player last season, Tetreault has carved out his niche as part of WLC’s big three this year.

“Last year I wasn't even allowed to touch the ball, so it's nice to come out and put some points on the board,” said Tetreault after Friday night’s game, a 61-52 win over Sunapee. The big man grabbed 15 boards and scored a career-high 19, dominating the Lakers down low.

“He always gives us 110 percent, and he's really coming into our new offense,” said head coach Flip Tremblay. “I'm proud of what he's been doing. I think we're going to see some big numbers from him coming toward the end of the season.”

The Warriors came out invigorated against Sunapee Friday, holding the Lakers to a nine-point first quarter and an eight-point second to take a 44-26 lead into the half.

Coming out of the break, the Lakers displayed a renewed intensity, and the Warriors, testing out some man-to-man defense in advance of a tough upcoming schedule, faltered a bit.

Sunapee made a run, and another, but the Warriors settled down. Jack Schwab scored 11 of his game-high 22 in the second half, Jake Levert kept getting buckets on his way to another 15 points, and Tetreault kept doing work down low.

“We’ve been working a lot in practice to try to get me down low open with the shot,” Tetreault said, “and that’s pretty much what we tried to do all night.”

WLC held on for a 61-52 win. The Warriors are now 4-5 heading into Tuesday night’s game at Hinsdale (6-4), set for 6:30 p.m. The Pacers are winners of four straight.

On Wednesday, WLC hosts Mascenic at 7 p.m. for a rematch of the Vikings’ 30-point victory earlier this month. The Division IV Warriors are confident coming into their game against DIII’s top team.

“Mascenic’s a tough team, but with the new defense we’ve been working on, I think we’ll be able to stop their offense now,” Tetreault said.
