∎ The ConVal boys also dropped their season opener to Windham on Friday by a score of 68-45. Senior point guard Jordan Moore paced the Cougars with 13 points. Noah Cail contributed nine points off the bench and Malik Earle had a “fantastic” game on the glass, according to head coach Kevin Proctor.
“Outside of a poor second quarter, the boys played with heart,” Proctor said. ConVal was outscored by 19 in the second quarter. “We need to continue our work on execution and taking care of the ball,” Proctor said. ConVal hosts Bishop Brady tonight at 6:30 p.m.
∎ The WLC girls fell to 0-2 on the season Friday as they traveled to Hinsdale, losing 65-31 on what head coach Dennis Claire called “ice-cold” shooting.
“We got beat on the boards again and missed many layups,” Claire said. “The score was not as bad as it looks as we played our bench in the 4th quarter and we were outscored by the Hinsdale starters 22-6. We had a few good moments in the second and third quarters but struggled both on offense, with many bad passes, and on D, covering Hinsdale’s best shooters.”
Sophomore Ally Schwab scored 16 points and senior captain Sami Bosquet added eight. WLC will play a road game at Derryfield tonight at 5 p.m. WLC’s first home game has finally been announced as well; the Warriors, at first scheduled to open the season with six straight road contests, will now break up that string with a home game against Epping on Jan. 3.
