Cougars ‘Double-Down’ Hawks by Marc Ayotte
Campbell hosted Hopkinton in a girls division III girls basketball game on Tuesday, January 17. The Hawks entered the contest with a 5-4 record and were at the tail end of a treacherous three game stretch that saw them facing Bow, Fall Mountain and Campbell who had a combined record of 24 wins against a single loss. The Cougars, with an unblemished 7-0 record, sat atop the D-3 standings, percentage points ahead of the Bow Falcons. After staying with the defending champs for most of the first half, the Hawks eventually faded and ultimately dropped a 72-52 decision to Campbell.
Campbell opened the game scoring the first six points only to see the Hawks storm back with a 6-0 run of their own to tie the score at the half way mark. Trailing 10-8 with 2:30 left, Liz Pettis nailed a triple from in front of the visitor’s bench to regain the lead. Seconds later, freshman Hannah Neild followed suit, connecting on a ‘tres’ of her own, pushing the Cougar lead to 14-12. Despite six first quarter points by Hawk guard Sabrey Montore, Cougars Liz Pettis, Neild and Becca Arnone paced Campbell to a 21-14 lead after one. The two teams played evenly for the first four minutes of the second quarter with Neild’s second triple of the game keeping the Cougars in front at 31-23. In a relatively uneventful second eight minutes, several Campbell turnovers combined with an at best tepid shooting performance from the floor kept Hopkinton hanging around. Defensively, the Hawks were very effective in shutting down the low post play of Arnone. However, on the strength of Arnone’s 12 first half points (8 on free throws) along with Neild (11) and Pettis (10), Campbell was able to head to the locker room with a 38-32 advantage. More of the same came Hopkinton’s way in the second half. The Cougar’s defensive pressure resulted in the home team pulling away from the Hawks as they increased their half time lead to thirteen, at 53- 40, after three. But the highlight of the quarter came with 4:37 remaining. Becca Arnone, after receiving an entry pass in the low post from point guard Hannah Neild, turned to the hoop and put up a shot (getting fouled in the act) that found the bottom of the net – making official her 1,000th point in a Cougar uniform. Ahead 55-40 with 7:05 remaining in the contest, Arnone scored Campbell’s next five points. Her long range dagger, combined with an offensive rebound put back, pushed the Cougar lead to 60-42 and all but sealed the Hawk’s fate. On a night that was hers forever to remember, Arnone spearheaded the Cougar attack, improving Campbell’s record to 8-0 on the season. Number 23 carved her way into the record books in style-style-style, as she posted a triple-double, including pouring in a career high 31 points. Adding to her statistical game of a lifetime,

Arnone committed larceny 11 times and collected 17 rebounds. Liz Pettis had another spectacular all-around game scoring 15, dishing out six assists, pulling down five rebounds as well as recording four steals. Hannah Neild, in addition to handing out “the assist” pitched in with 13 points. Boys Rebound; Defeat Hawks on the Road Meanwhile, out Hopkinton way, the Campbell boys’ basketball team was battling the Hawks, as they continue their torrid stretch against the best that D-3 has to offer. Rebounding nicely from a recent defeat to Conant, the Cougars put forth a nice defensive effort, holding a strong long distance shooting Hawk team to just 7 of 27 from three point land, en route to a convincing 57-44 road win.
Holding a slim five- point lead at the half, 28-23, the Cougars took charge in the third quarter; “it was a really good defensive quarter for us” recalled head coach Pat Roye. Leading the defensive stand was junior point guard Max Gouveia. According to Roye, Gouviea outplayed Hopkinton’s All-State guard Frank Beane; “he did a real nice job defending him” adding “he had a real solid performance.” In addition to shutting down Beane, Gouveia tossed in 12 points and dished out 4 assists. John Houston and Caleb McKearin each scored 13 points in sharing team high honors, as well as combining for seventeen rebounds. Coach Roye was pleased with off the bench performances by Chuck Neild (two points and six rebounds) and Nick Freson’s six points and six rebounds). The Cougars will not be able to enjoy their victory for long before getting back to business. “We continue our tour,” noted Roye, referencing a brutal three game stretch that finds Campbell facing Conant, Hopkinton and Prospect Mountain (away on Friday) who had a combined record of 21-1 at the time the respective teams faced one another. Staying upbeat, Roye added, “we have to be happy to be 6-2, the kids are getting better all the time.”
