New Hampton Tops Bridgton Academy 86-70

New Hampton outlasted Bridgton 86-70 at New Hampton on Wednesday night. New Hampton jumped on top early building a 17-2 lead before the visiting Wolverines responded to narrow the gap 36-28 at halftime. The home team extended their lead again in the second half, with BA closing to ten but never closer during the game’s final minutes. Kareem Canty (New York, NY) led the Bridgton attack with 20 points. BA Coach Lesure credited New Hampton’s team play with the victory. “They have improved significantly during the last month, while our team is struggling right now to regain our swagger. Losing in any competitive conference compounds things a bit, and our league is no different. We’ve been a bit snake-bitten with injuries and illness, but those are usually the kinds of feelings that go a long with losing. Somehow we need to create a break for ourselves that sparks some positive momentum,” said Lesure.

Up next the team will travel to MCI to play on Wednesday at 6:00 PM.
