Coming off of a forty-point drubbing back at the beginning of the season, the Middleborough basketball team could not have been too hopeful heading into their game against the Hockomock league Canton Bulldogs.
And without much suspense the game was a relatively easy game for the Dogs’. Some would call it a “warm-up” of sorts for their must win game on Friday at Stoughton High School.
It was 17-7 after one, 33-15 at half, and by the time the third quarter ended the lead had reached over 30 at 59-26.
(Soph.) Devin Foster led the way in terms of scoring with 16 points, followed by (Jr.) Tony Harris and (Sr.) Danny Hartnett with 12 points apeice.
The game also featured some faces who don’t typically see a ton of Varsity playing time including (Jr.) Matt “The Warbur-tron” Warburton chipping in with a bucket and several rebounds. (Soph.) Ryan Lentol who is still working his way back into the mix coming off of a foot injury also played well.
In the end the Bulldogs coasted to a 68-34 convincing win. The next two games against Stoughton and Archbishop Williams are “win or go home” for the Bulldogs looking to make the playoffs for the first time since 2014.
