Wolverines Lose 74-67 at Marianapolis Prep

Bridgton Academy traveled to the nutmeg state (CT) to participate in the Hoop Mountain Classic and lost to host Marianapolis Prep Sunday afternoon. The Wolverines fell behind early and never caught up in the first half trailing 42-26 at intermission. In the second half the visitors competed better, threatening to make it a close game in the final minutes, but were not able to find enough answers to the execution problems that plagued their play throughout the afternoon.

Coach Lesure was complimentary of the effort put in by the host school of this event saying, “we certainly were not looking past this one, and quite the opposite, felt like we were going to have to play awfully well to pull it out on the road against a school with a great tradition. They were good in my estimation, and we were not. I think sometimes early in the season you learn more in a loss, so in that sense, while I am not happy, I think our team should be looking straight ahead as we take our lumps from this”.

Bridgton Academy (4-2) hosts MCI on Wednesday evening at 6:00 P.M. in a NEPSAC AAA league contest.
