Wednesday Night Recaps
LITCHFIELD: The Nonnewaug boys are big and strong and not afraid to throw their talent around.
In their 2012/2013 debut, the Chief’s rolled over Wamogo by a 67-36 score behind 24 points from senior Ben Timme and 12 from fellow senior Dylan Martland.
Timme nailed four three-pointers as the visitors ran out to a 25-14 at the half and put things away with a 17-0 run in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter.
Wamogo was led by Eric Davis with 12 points and Nick Nemrgut who tallied 10 points in the loss.
TORRINGTON: In a surprisingly easy game, the Torrington Red Raiders slammed visiting Holy Cross by a 65-35 score.
These two bitter rivals are usually separated by a handful off points tops but Wednesday night, two players stepped up to have career nights foor head coach Mike Fritch.
Olivia Morrison led her team with 16 points and eight rebounds while Paige Middleton added a dozen.
Both were going to be counted on by Fritch and came through in a big way as the Raiders improved their season record to 3-0.
Nicole Kozlak had 11 and Caroline Teti added nine in the win.
LITCHFIELD: John Stevens scored 27 points and Connor Guiheen added 16 to lead the Northwestern boys basketball team to a 90-39 victory over Litchfield on Wednesday night in the season opener for both teams.
Jimi Phillips added 12 points and 14 rebounds and Eric Weingart added 11 points for Northwestern, a semifinalist in Class S last season, which led 38-9 after the first quarter and never looked back.
Stevens scored 14 of his points in the first quarter and Guiheen added 11 as the Highlanders dictated the tempo with their defense and ability to push the ball on the fast break off of misses by the Cowboys.
It was a rough opener for first year Litchfield coach Keith Lipinsky, who got a look at the best team in the league right off the bat.
Freshman Brandon Hookstadt led Litchfield with 10 points.
Saturday figures to be a little more interesting for Northwestern as it will travel to Woodbury for a matchup with Nonnewaug in an early-season BL showdown.
