close as the Broncos would come, as they could not seem to get the offense on track. The Broncos shot two for 13 in the second quarter and the scoring drought continued in the third, shooting one for 21. “The kids played hard, but just couldn’t put the ball in the hole,” commented Garon. Caleb Donnelly led the scoring with 16 points,

two rebounds, one assist, and two steals, followed by Jon Baldwin with eight points, five rebounds, and one assist. Tyler Livingston chipped in with six points and four rebounds. The Broncos lost their second contest of the

season on Tuesday, December 21, when they traveled to Manchester Central to take on the Little Green. The Broncos lost 65-48. Alvirne hung tough for the first two quarters, only finding themselves down 16-12 at the half. To open the third quarter, a tough Bronco press forced three consecutive turnovers, giving Alvirne a lead, but the Broncos were outscored 23-11 in the quarter, proving to be the demise for the Broncos. Donnelly led the way with 26 points, followed by Patrick Nager with eight and Robert Diamond with three points. The JV squad won their contest, 49-37.
