Tre Hodge scored the last eight points of the game and 15 points overall as the boys varsity basketball team defeated Chicopee Comp by a score of 55 – 52 last night. But it wasn’t really the amount of points he scored that was so impressive … it was the manner in which he accomplished his feat. Hodge banked home a 75 foot, three quarter court shot for the game winning three point hoop as the buzzer sounded. Bulldog fans rushed the floor and carried the game’s hero from the court and to the hand shake line. Hodge’s heroics were just part of the Bulldog magic as Aaron Williams had 18 points to lead the Bulldog scoring and guys like Ki-sean Johnson, Ja’Quan Johnson, Souley Diaby, Jahmal Camobell, Jamal Jackson and the rest made it a team effort to record the league win.
The jy guys also won a nail biter as they defeated Comp by a score of 37 – 36 in the preliminary game. Kevin West, Sidney Borges and Alex Williams were solid throughout.
In the freshmen game the guys fell to Comp by a score of 46 – 36. Jay’lin Lovejoy had 12 points to lead Bulldog scorers.
Today the wrestlers travel to Southwick and the girls freshman basketball team gets over to Minnechaug.
And tomorrow it’s time for more Bulldog magic as the boys varsity basketball team gets back into action with the 4:00 PM game at the Hoophall Classic at Springfield College. Tickets will be available at the door for just $10.00. Get there early as we are expecting a big crowd.
