Wolfpack Boys V Basketball Succumb to Hornets, 55-45

Thursday 15, December

Hyde Woodstock: 45

at Hamden Hall : 55

 

The Boys Varsity Basketball team travelled to play Hamden Hall’s squad on Thursday 15, December and, after an outstanding first half, the Wolf Pack succumbed to the Hornets forty-five to fifty-five.  Hyde  Woodstock’s record is five wins and two losses.  Rob Lewis ’12 scored on his first four shots, three of which came from beyond the arc, and worked Jahvaney Beckford ’13(9 points, 6 rebounds) and Christian Ejiga ’13 (8 points, 5 rebounds) into the offensive sets. The starting unit limited turnovers, played efficient defense, and moved the ball effectively on offense, taking a surprise thirty to twenty-four point lead into the locker room at half time. Hamden Hall utilized its deep bench to wear down Hyde’s team and to get Ejiga into foul trouble.  Hyde worked its press in the closing minutes and narrowed the gap to five points before Hamden Hall closed out the game on free throws.  Lewis’ twenty-two points and eight trips to the stripe showed great leadership, and the team’s strong performance overall raised hopes for the coming new year.
