Division II (Grades 6 & 7)

In the first match up of the week we saw an absolute shootout between two stars well rested after break. The always impressive Sean Zaslaw from Denistry for Children held nothing back dropping 11 points for his squad, but it was the combined effort of the two big men Alex Bedoni and Aidyn Zmud who proved to be the real stars of the day grabbing board after board and finishing with a combined 8 of their teams 28. While all this was great the Big Three of Denistry stood no chance against the break out performance of the year. Anthony Dragone must have been watching the Celtics during his break because he was really looking like Kyrie Irving out there. With several dimes including 2 in the 5th period and a game high (and season high for him) 17 points included 9 in his fantastic 5th period. Overall Dragone became too much and Jimmy's Diner took the dub 39-28.

The second bout of the day saw two solids TEAMS (and I'm really talking TEAMS) clash on the hardwood. Surprise standout from Kelly's Oil, Ben Haugh was on fire from three hitting 3 out 5 and dropping a season high for him and game high 11. While his shooting couldn't be matched, Ben and Kelly's Oil stood no chance today against a well run Councilors at Large squadron. The beautifully coached red team had no one real standout, for certain they had every single person on the team score a basket. That's right, all 10 players scored and so instead of player of the week for them I'm going to have to go with their coach, Jane Hackett, who for the first time in all my years in JBL got every single player on her team a chance at some points, and they didn't let her down. In the end Hackett's coaching and the kids' wonderful response was probably too much for any team that day and they beat Kelly's Oil 35-28.  

The third match of the day was a defensive battle between Barnes Buildings and Dunkin Donuts. Going with the theme of the day, Barnes business received great help from Braeden Neenan who had been a quiet scorer up until now. But as it seemed to go for all the games today it just was Neenan's day as he dropped a season high for him 11 points and played solid defense all around. The real standout of the game, though, was the combined efforts of Dunkin Donuts' Angelina Rhode and Matt Duseau. Together the two played some lock down D each grabbing several steals.  In transition Angelina was more then efficient going 2-3 from mid-range and 1-2 from down town and scoring her season high 9 points. In the end, this combo proved too much to handle and Dunkin Donuts won 29-17.

Sunday's game between Bridges Insurance Alliance and Park Ave. Market Ace Hardware was a big victory for Ace Hardware with a final score of 36-15. Will Savage and Andrew Conley of Ace Hardware helped bring their team to victory with a combined 18 points in dominant showings by both players.

Leighton Division (Grades 8 & 9)

Starting off an early Sunday morning game, Scapicchio Law beat Stockholders 42-33. Matt Kowalski and Anthony Greco played great games for Scapicchio Law, hustling from the start of the game and not stopping until it was over. James and Jake had outstanding games for Stockholders, both scoring 3-pointers and showing great determination.

Union Brew House played against Alvin Hollis this week, with Union Brew House winning 51-29. Joshua and William of Union Brew House played very strategic offensive, and showed good sportsmanship. The Kennedy brothers of Alvin Hollis played up to their potential this week, scoring a combined 20 points. Matt Folan also played well this week, with strong rebounding on both sides of the court.

Sunday afternoon's matchup of Olden's Pharmacy vs. Brewster Ambulance Service was a high scoring game, but Olden's Pharmacy was too much and took control of the game winning 51-35. Leading scorers Jake Savage and Jacob Engren dominated the game and combined for a total of 32 points, finishing up with 16 points each. Joe Sullivan (10 points) and Jonah Mincey (13 points) of Brewster Ambulance Service did all they could to hold on, but Olden's Pharmacy were too much to conquer.
