Hyde Conquers Isleboro: Phoenix Outfly Eagles

 

Hyde     17           25           17           12             71

Isleboro  2             9            9             8                 28

 

Isleboro-Paced by the pressure defense behind Wilson MacMillan ’14, Talin Rowe ’14 and Mustapha Niang ’14, Hyde erupted with a 14-0 run midway through the 1st quarter to take a commanding 17-2 lead over the Isleboro Eagles.  Isleboro never recovered and the Phoenix won by a score of 71-28.  Hyde moved to 7-0 on the season.  Both MacMillan (17 points, 4 steals) and Rowe (8 points, 5 assists, 5 steals) were perfect from the field. What is great about those guys is their defensive intensity.  Whenever they enter the game our energy level improves.  I think that we are just as strong as we were last year with our perimeter defense.  Macmillan converted on 3 long range bombs.  Evander Lenardson ‘14 also chipped in for 11 points off the bench.
