BOYS’ BASKETBALL

Conant 37, Mascenic 34

The Vikings erased a 13-point deficit and held Conant scoreless in the fourth quarter Wednesday evening, but the Orioles still hung in to win by three. 

Colson Seppala went off for a game-high 23 points for Conant with four three-pointers; all but two of his points were scored in the first half. 

Blaine Krook hit four threes of his own to lead Mascenic with 14 points.

The two teams were expected to play again at Mascenic on Friday, but a COVID situation in the Mascenic district forced the school to go remote and postpone the game.

Conant (6-2) plays at Bishop Brady Monday and at Hinsdale Tuesday.

It was the first loss for Mascenic (5-1) since Jan. 3, 2020.

 

Pelham 51, ConVal 38

ConVal dropped their second straight game to Pelham on Thursday to fall to 3-2 on the season after a 3-0 start. The Cougars, who lost senior Isaiah Michaels for the season after the Souhegan game, are getting excellent play from senior guard Wyatt Davis, who is averaging a team-high 16.7 points per game along with seven rebounds and two steals per game. It’s a strong backcourt for the Cougars, who are also getting quality contributions from Owen Michaels (6.8 ppg, 5 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.8 steals per game) and Austin Knight (6.3 ppg, 5 rebounds, 1.3 steals).

ConVal hosts Hollis-Brookline Tuesday.

GIRLS’ BASKETBALL

Pelham 57, ConVal 31

The Cougars lost their rematch with Pelham on Thursday, despite a great effort defensively from Makenna Proctor, who held Pelham’s leading scorer Tallie Carney to just three points.

“Pelham has a lot of weapons, and they found their scoring elsewhere,” coach Kevin Proctor said; namely, it came from beyond the arc, as Pelham hit seven threes in the game.

Makenna Proctor also hit three threes in the game to lead ConVal with nine points; Morgan Bemont had eight, and Maddy Faber had four points and 12 rebounds.

“We turned the ball over way too many times and are still trying to find that offensive groove,” coach Proctor said.

ConVal (0-3) won’t have many more opportunities to find that groove, as they currently only have two more games on their schedule, a home tilt with Hollis-Brookline Friday and a trip to Milford the following Tuesday.

Conant 72, Mascenic 27

All 11 Orioles scored Wednesday as Conant routed Mascenic in New Ipswich by nearly 50 points in their first matchup since 2016.

Emma Tenters had a game-high 20 points and Elizabeth Gonyea had 14 for Conant. Kenzie Cormier led Mascenic with 11.

Friday’s rematch was also called off due to COVID in the Mascenic district.

Undefeated Conant (8-0) was set to host undefeated Division II powerhouse Bishop Brady Monday and then hosts Hinsdale Tuesday.
