Wolverines Push Past Holderness

Bridgton Academy returned to playing winning basketball with a team oriented 77-45 victory against Holderness School NH. BA started strong with several baskets but the visitors rallied to even the game 17-17 at the ten minute mark of the first half. The Wolverines capitalized on the cold shooting of the visitors to mount a game breaking run to lead 41-17 at the half.

Corey Spence (Baltimore, MD) paced a balanced BA attack with 16 points but Coach Lesure was quick to point out the contributions of several players off the bench to spark the Wolverines. “I thought no one played a better overall game than Nebby Exantus (Apopka, FL). He is finally getting healthy and ready to contribute on both ends,” said Lesure.

Lesure also thought the focus was better on Wednesday in their second game back saying, “we are still very much a work in progress as a team. I think the sting of defeat was a good thing for everybody including me.”

The Wolverines return to action Friday evening at the Prides Corner tournament hosted by St. Thomas More. BA squares off against Phelps Academy PA in a first ever meeting for the two schools.
