Lancer Boys’ Basketball Fall to Bulldogs, Beat Blackbirds

The Londonderry High School Boys’ Basketball team were able to brush off a difficult home defeat to begin the new year with a strong win to end the week on a high note.
In the team’s game against the Bedford Bulldogs on Tuesday night, Jan. 2, at home, Londonderry suffered a one-sided 85-38 loss to their opponents, allowing Bedford to add another victory to their undefeated season.
The Lancers were never really in this game, trailing, 21-9, at the end of the first period and seeing BHS go up 49-19 by halftime. In the third, LHS added 12, but were only able to come up with eight points in the fourth.
Needless-to-say the Bulldogs dominated both sides of the court.
Three nights later, during a road game in Keene, Londonderry was able to put the tough loss behind them and outlast the Blackbirds 50-45, for the team’s second win of the season.
Keene came into the game with a better record, at 3-2, and the game remained tight for the first three quarters, but in the fourth, Londonderry outscored their opponents 20-15 for the five-point victory.
Both teams had 10-points by the end of the first quarter and Londonderry went ahead 21-16 by the half.
In the third period, Keene held Londonderry to just nine points while scoring 14 of their own and tying the game at 30-30 by the final period where the Lancers came through.
Senior forward, Ty Miles, topped the Lancers in scoring with 16-points, getting four-points in each quarter.
Fellow senior, Crosby Nolan, had 10-points in the win, two of which came by three-pointers.
Junior forward, Mason Paquette, tallied nine-points, while senior Ryan Williams had seven and junior James Totten finished with six-points.
The now 4-2 Lancers were scheduled to start a five-game home stand, starting on Tuesday, Jan. 9, against Dover High School (3-2) followed by a game on Friday night, Jan. 12, against the Salem Blue Devils (4-1) starting at 7 p.m.
