  • The boys basketball team won a thrilling game yesterday against Suffield.  The Cougars were down 18-4 after the first quarter but rallied back in the second to be down 20-17 at half. Brooklyn King had five 3’s to help lead the comeback.  King hit a 3 with less than 20 seconds to play and then stole the inbound pass and fed Tyler Poland for the layup plus the foul.  Tyler hit the the go ahead free throw with 9 second left and held on to win 46-45. The Cougars play tomorrow at Illing Middle School.
  • The Lady Cougars opened up their title defense, taking on the Suffield Wildcats last night in Suffield. The Lady Cougars were held in check for most of the first half, however, they were still in the game going into halftime. Down nine, entering the second frame, the Lady Cougars decided to put the press on, and boy did they ever.  Steal after steal and fast break after fast break, the Lady Cougars chipped away and scored 19 in the quarter to the Wildcat’s six. The Lady Cougars were led by Shea Brochu  with 17 strong and eight of them coming from the free line, Olivia Dzubin had two three-pointers and a free throw, Maria Puniello scored four as well. Elise Glunt had several key rebounds and three points from the charity stripe as well. Alex Gogic , Emmi Tushe, and America Bernier each had two points in the contest and Madison Carpenter added one. The final score after such a great comeback was 38-33. Great job ladies.
