Pine Point Holds Off Strong Mariner Come Back Attempt
- RHS 26 and Pine Point 32
- Dudley Samponaro & Massimo Decenso – 6 points apiece
The Rocky Hill boys B team traveled to Pine Point for their fourth game of the season and hungry for their first victory. At half the boys were down 18 to 15 but had fallen deep into foul trouble. Cole Brown, Massimo DeCenso and Josh Bowater all had picked up 4 personal fouls which gave pine point a lot of opportunities at the foul line. With seven minutes remaining the boys were down by 30 to 19. In an attempt to narrow the gap, we switched to a full court man to man press which worked well as they limited pine point to just 2 points and scored 7. However, there just wasn’t enough time to complete the comeback. Dudley Samponaro played great back court defense throughout the game tallying 6 steals, many of which came during the full court press. In addition he also scored 6 points and was our team co-leading scorer along with Massimo DeCenso. Jay Park and Cole also both tallied 4 four points, two of Cole’s came from the line as he continues his great free throw shooting percentage this season.
The boys will play their next game away at Barrington Christian Academy.
