Pythons and Cougars Exchange Routs in Varsity Hoops

Derek DeFranzo (#22) reins in a “tres” to give Pelham a 22-19 early second-quarter lead vs. Milford

53-49. A subsequent 8-2 Spartan run, however, highlighted by a cool “stop and pop” jumper by Milford’s O’Loughlin from the foul line extended, sealing the deal for the visitors and giving them the 10-point margin of victory. Leading the way for Milford, combining for 33 of their team’s 61 points, were Mike O’Loughlin (17) and Jamie Holder (16). S. Spirou with 19 and DeFranzo with 12 led the way for the Pythons. Post-game, Python head coach Matt Regan admitted his team missed a lot of shots from in close towards the end. “We had a lot of shots go in and out,” he said. Overall, Coach Regan had this to say about his team’s effort: “We are where we need to be; we put forth a good effort.” Referring to the action in the Snake Pit that night, he added: “It doesn’t get any better.”

In an equally exciting JV game held earlier in

the evening, the Pelham boys, behind a gigantic third period offensive display by Zach Conway, held on to defeat the Junior Spartans by a score of 48-45. Conway lit up the scoreboard with 15 points (including three “tres”). Six-foot, two-inch Python sophomore Chad Loring kept Milford out of the win column with an impressive fourth- quarter performance by scoring his team’s final eight points. Freshman Jake Vaiknoras kept the first half close as he poured in all of his 10 points in the first 16 minutes.

By press time, the Python boys will have visited the Cougars at CHS. They return home to the Snake Pit for three consecutive games against St. Thomas Aquinas (January 14), Bedford (January 21) and Oyster River (January 25).

a good character builder,”commented Assistant Coach Neil O’Connell post- game. Head Coach Doug Watson reflected on what took place in the Wolf Pack locker room between periods, noting that during the first intermission, “we talked about picking up the pace.” But between the second and third periods, Watson’s plea to his team picked up some intensity: “I wanted my team to remind their opponents whose house we’re [playing] in.” The W-P hockey team spends the remainder of January on the road with five consecutive away games, including an important battle with Somersworth, before returning home to the Icenter in Salem, where they host Con- Val Regional on Wednesday, February 2.

traveled to The Den this past Tuesday for an inter- division basketball double header against the Cougars of Campbell High. Head coach Shawn Flynn’s red hot D-3 Campbell varsity girls in the early attraction built a comfortable first quarter lead en route to a 67-49 pummeling of the Pelham High School (PHS) girls squad. With retribution in order, the Division II Pelham boys’ quintet was able to return the gesture in the nightcap as a strong second half tamed the Cougars on the way to a 64-44 shellacking of the hosts. The Lady Cougars brought a 5-1 record into this contest and were coming off what Flynn called his team’s “best game of the year” one week earlier versus Bow High School. The first quarter saw the young Lady Pythons get off to another slow start falling behind 6-0 just two minutes after the opening tip-off. A trade mark Cougar full court press allowed Campbell High School (CHS) to capitalize on Python turnovers for several easy baskets. As well, a deliberate set offense featured numerous exhibitions of interior passing and scoring in the paint led by junior Rebecca Arnone. At one point, a tremendous no-look pass by Cougar Liz Pettis to Arnone drew ‘oooohs‘ from the crowd. Although the Cougars were ice cold from the outside, their dominance inside the bucket allowed them to establish a 14-point lead after one at 22-8. Liz Pettis drained a ‘tres’ to open up the second quarter but a steal by Pelham’s Rebecca Debaldo for a hoop AND 1 gave the Pythons a 5-0 spurt cutting the Cougar lead to a dozen at 25-13. However, a quick 7-1 turn around by CHS gave them their biggest lead of the half at 32-14 causing the visitors to take a time out. Despite Pelham’s adjustments, Campbell continued to score inside as Arnone again was the recipient of another text book interior bounce pass by teammate Pettis as well as a nice feed from senior guard Kristen Hrubowchak pushing the Cougar lead to 22. A six to nothing gasp by the Pythons was refuted with a Campbell 7-1 run and at the half CHS held a commanding 45-23 lead. Although Alicia Gendron netted six of her team high 12 points with two long range

jumpers in the third quarter, the Cougars still outscored the Pythons 18-10 and pushed their half time lead to a staggering 30 points after three quarters of play. In typical fashion, as Python head coach Kyle Tave has alluded to in past games, his varsity girls didn’t show any quit and outscored the Cougars in the final stanza 16-4. For the Lady Cougars, Liz Pettis had a game high 17 points leading the way. Inside force Rebecca Arnone was right behind with 16, while Kristen Hrubowchak and Ally Framarini each chipped in with 11. For Pelham, behind Gendron’s dozen were Grimes with nine points and Debaldo and Catalano with eight each. The boys’ game featured numerous major runs

by each team, but when all was said and done the bigger and more frequent runs belonged to the Pythons. Coming off a hard fought home court defeat at the hands of Milford last Friday night, coach Matt Regan surely expected his team to be
