The boys basketball team lost 62-60 to Illing on Friday in a hard fought battle between the teams. A late 3 point play tied the score but Illing hit a shot with 3 seconds left to give the Rams the win. The cougars drop to 1 - 2  but look to even their record on Tuesday vs. JFK at home.

The Lady Cougars took on the Illing Rams last Friday and fell short 48-23.  However, it was a vast improvement from the first contest with Illing in terms of hustle and determination.  Leading the Lady Cougars was Nour Abunasra with 8 points while Angie Santiago had four and Reagan Heafey-DeAngelis had three.  The next game for the Lady Cougars is Tuesday away to JFK in Enfield.  Tip-ins: Sharon Iweka, Nadine Abunasra, Sophia Bowers and Cassie Polansky all had two points a piece in the contest.
