Boys’ basketball

Kearsarge 51, Milford 47

Key players: Kearsarge – Noah Tremblay (26 points, 7 steals, 5 rebounds), Kyle Hernon (10 points, 16 rebounds, 4 blocks), Adrian McCarthy (7 points), Emerson Tyler, Scott Bassi, Ben Carl, Jak Jallah

Highlights: The Cougars led 11-5 after the first quarter, trailed 23-22 at halftime, led 33-27 through three and a pair of made free throws from both Tremblay and McCarthy in the final minute secured the win. The biggest factor to Kearsarge’s win, however, was the Cougars’ team defense, which was strong throughout, but especially strong in the first quarter (held Spartans to five points) and third quarter (held Spartans to four points). Tyler, Bassi, Carl and Jallah all made significant contributions on the defensive end of the floor.

Coach’s quote: “Defense was outstanding tonight. We didn’t let people get by us off the dribble ... Great way to bounce back after a tough loss on Monday.” – Kearsarge’s Nate Camp

Records: Kearsarge 3-3; Milford 3-3
