Hyde-Woodstock Girls Varsity Basketball vs. Hyde-Bath

Hyde-Woodstock – 48
Hyde-Bath – 31

Hyde-Woodstock traveled to Kents Hill Maine as the defending champions to participate in the third annual Aleigh Mills Basketball tournament.  The first game was against Hyde-Bath.  The wolf pack came out in a smothering press which hampered Bath’s ability to move the ball offensively.  The aggressive defense eventually wore down the phoenix which led to easy turnovers and fast break points.  The team went into the locker room with a 27 to 11 point lead.  In the second half the team began to work on spreading the floor and being patient on offense, as there was no shot clock.  All in all it was a solid first game effort with Cahsmir Fulcher ’15 leading all scorers with 25 points and Janicha Diaz ’14 adding 19 points to the bottom line.  Maia Johnson ’14 also chipped in 5 points and many more rebounds.

Hyde-Woodstock Girls Varsity Basketball vs. Kents Hill

Hyde-Woodstock – 51
Kents Hill – 25


Hyde-Woodstock took on home team Kents Hill in the finals of the tournament.  The goals of the team were to have more balanced scoring and work on positioning in both the press and offense.  The team capitalized on the turnovers created by the aggressive nature of the press.  Kents hill started in a triangle and two defense, closely guarding Cashmir and Janicha but senior Katherine Hagood hit two quick shots including a three which forced them to switch their defense.  Hyde went into halftime with a 36-8 lead.  The team worked on chemistry and getting more people involved in the offense.  Maia Johnson ’14Jenna Kowalski ’13, and Maureen Bellwoar ‘13 all scored in the second half.  The team worked well together.  Hyde plays Lincoln in their first league game on Wednesday December 5.


Scoring is as follows: Cashmir Fulcher ’15 12-1-27, Janicha Diaz ’14 5-0-10, Katherine Hagood ’13 2-0-5, Jenna Kowalski ’13 1-0-2, Maia Johnson ’14 2-0-4, Maureen Bellwoar ’13 1-1-3.
