The Recorder – Schools: Peterson, Lavin shoot Turners boys past Franklin Tech, 65-43

[ad_1]

Just one night removed from a tough shooting outing, Turners Falls High School turned the tides Friday night. The visiting Thunder used a 27-point second quarter to help get past crosstown foe Franklin Tech, 65-43, in an independent boys basketball game in the Powertown.

Turners (3-5) struggled from the floor in Thursday’s 75-57 loss to Pioneer, but recovered to post its second-highest point total of the season in the win. Anthony Peterson scored a game-high 23 points and Tyler Lavin was right behind with a 22-point outing to get the Thunder a much-needed victory.

“They executed very well,” Franklin Tech coach Tim Artus said of Turners. “Their shots fell frequently. We got some good shots, I thought, but they weren’t falling for us.”

Turners held a 48-38 edge in rebounding, and its defensive effort held Franklin Tech (4-3) well below its scoring average after three consecutive games in the 70s.

“Turners put really good full-court pressure on us,” said Artus. “We knew it was coming and they still executed.”

The game was tied 13-13 after one quarter before Turners outscored the Eagles, 27-18, in the second to take a 40-31 halftime advantage. Franklin Tech managed just four points in the third quarter and was unable to claw back.

Tech was led offensively by Sim Maniatty, who scored in double figures for the third time in his last four contests with 13 points. Marcus Sanders and Garret Cole each finished with 8 points.

Turners returns to Hampshire League South play Monday with a road game at Hopkins while Franklin Tech hosts Pioneer Valley Christian in Tri-County League North action.

Mahar 52, Athol 29 — Jordan Desrosiers totaled 15 points, helping visiting Mahar claim Round 1 of the North Quabbin battle this season in an independent contest Friday night at Mallet Gymnasium.

Desrosiers was the lone double-digit scorer on the night, helping the Senators improve to 5-2 overall. Athol dropped to 2-5 with its second loss in as many nights.

Mahar led 24-16 at halftime, but used a 13-4 edge in the third frame to pull away.

“We played well in the first quarter,” began Athol coach Dan Bevis, whose team trailed just 13-9 after one. “They made a little run to stretch the lead in the second but we were right there at halftime. We couldn’t make much of anything in the second half.”

Athol went 2-for-16 from the free-throw line in the first half, and finished 6-for-24 for the game from the stripe. Mark Ferrari was the team’s leading scorer with 6 points, followed by Nathan Heath with 5 points. Nick Bousquet and Noah Pottinger tossed in 4 points each.

Daesean Watson registered 8 points for Mahar, which also received offensive contributions from Charlie Barnes (7 points), Eli Gonzalez (6) and Jakob Carron (5).

Mahar hosts Pioneer in a key early season Hampshire League South game Monday night while Athol heads to play Frontier in an HL North tussle.

Greenfield 67, Hopkins 41 — Visiting Hopkins led 12-9 after one quarter, but Greenfield regrouped to blow past the Golden Hawks in a Franklin County League North game Friday night at Nichols Gymnasium.

After nearly a week off following Greenfield’s first loss of the season to Whitman-Hanson on Dec. 29, the hosts struggled out of the gates. Hopkins star Samantha Jenks scored eight points in the first quarter to help the Hawks to a 12-9 advantage.

Greenfield (6-1, 3-0) bounced back in the second quarter, outscoring Hopkins by a 17-8 margin to take a 26-20 lead into the locker room. The Green Wave exploded in the third quarter for 28 points, building a 54-29 lead entering the fourth that all but sealed the team’s sixth win of the year.

Katie Haselton put together another impressive second-half effort in the win. The sophomore guard scored 13 of her game-high 28 points in the third, hitting a trio of 3-pointers in the frame. All told, she had 19 of her 28 after intermission.

Senior Samantha Smith poured in 20 points, marking her fourth game of 20 or more points this season. Classmate Raegan Hickey, who helped stem the tide in the first half, finished with 14 points — 10 coming before halftime.

Jenks wound up with 17 points to lead Hopkins (6-3, 1-2), though the Greenfield defense held her to just five points in the second half.

Greenfield heads to Mahar Tuesday night for another FCL North tilt.

Mahar 76, Athol 46 — Four players scored in double figures, helping Mahar build an early lead it would not relinquish in a win over its North Quabbin rival in a FCL North game Friday night at Mallet Gymnasium in Athol.

The Senators (4-3, 2-1), who capped off the school’s doubleheader sweep in the nightcap, stormed out of the gates in building a commanding 24-8 lead after one quarter. The advantage grew to 39-17 at halftime.

Micalyn Mailloux posted her seventh consecutive double-digit scoring output with 13 points to pace Mahar. Delaney Parker notched a season-high 12 points, while being joined in double figures by Abby Bonk (season-high 11 points) and Jazmyn Vautour (10). Parker dished out six assists, Vautour added five markers, while Tori Tenney had 3 points and nine rebounds. Sophia Apteker added 8 points and MaryAnne Prescott chipped in 7 — both season-highs.

Athol (2-6, 0-4) star Haley Bigwood did the bulk of the offensive damage for the hosts. The junior posted a season-high 29 points, upping her average to 16 points per game on the year. Taylor Cleveland added 7 points and Sophie Putnam tossed in 4. The Red Raiders are off until Jan. 14 when they play Southwick.

Pope Francis 48, Mohawk 30 — Despite another strong game inside from Grace Ward, Mohawk struggled with turnovers and boxing out en route to a loss to Pope Francis in a FCL West game Friday night in Chicopee.

Ward scored 4 points but posted totals of 15 rebounds and 13 blocks for the Warriors (2-5, 1-2). Grace Poplawski and Ashley Reynolds led the way offensively, as the duo each scored 11 points. The total was a season-high for Reynolds, while it was Poplawski’s sixth double-digit scoring night of the year.

Pope Francis (4-5, 2-1) was paced by a big effort from Julie Garvey. She scored 14 of her 18 points in the first half, drilling four 3-pointers before intermission as the Cardinals led 28-15 at the break.

Mohawk next hosts FCL West-leading McCann Tech (6-1, 3-0) Tuesday night.

Renaissance 54, FC Tech 24 — Desiree Crawford and Sydney Dodds combined for 31 points, and host Renaissance stayed undefeated atop the Tri-County League North standings with a triumph over Franklin Tech Friday night in Springfield.

The Phoenix (7-0, 1-0) took a 17-4 lead after one quarter and bumped it to 30-11 at intermission.

Jocelyn Crowningshield led the Eagles (2-5, 0-1) with 13 points — her third straight double-digit scoring performance. Emily Ryan added 4 points and Jordan Hurlbert followed with 3.
