Basketball - Boys Junior Varsity
vs. Avon Old Farms School
|Date:||January 8, 2014|
|Score:||Berkshire 25 - Avon 48|
Event Recap:The boys traveled to Avon to take on the Winged Beavers on their home court. They are always tough, and especially so on the road. Both teams were tight to start -- first game back after break -- and struggled to find any sort of offensive rhythm. Though we scored the game's first basket, and led 2-0, it would be our only lead of the game as the offense really struggled to get buckets and, when we had easy chances, we just couldn't convert. Fortunately for us, Avon didn't exactly light up the scoreboard either, so we only trailed by 7 at the break: 20-13.
The second half opened with a good defensive stop and then we sunk a three point shot to cut the lead to 4. This would be as close as we could get, however, as Avon's press eventually took its toll and yielded few scoring opportunities for us and easy ones for them. The lead eventually stretched out to the final margin -- their biggest lead of the game.
We have a chance to rebound on the road against Gunnery on Saturday.
