On Friday, February 3, the WA Boys’ Basketball team played an intense game against the Lincoln-Sudbury Warriors. The close scoring and the energy of the game had the audience at the edge of their seats until the end, as WA fell short and lost 57-44.

The first quarter started with Lincoln-Sudbury scoring a three-pointer almost a minute into the game, after a lot of back and forth possession between the two teams, showing that it was going to be a tough game. When there were about three and half minutes left in the quarter, WA was behind 11-3.

The Ghosts brought it back quickly at the end of the quarter. With successful shots by senior Jon Glidden as well as a last second shot by sophomore Scott Beattie, the final score of the quarter was 14-10 with LS in the lead.

The second quarter started with LS scoring first yet again. They scored a lot of the first few points, but WA wasted no time, coming right behind them, the score being 23-21 at around two minutes.

Glidden once again shined during this quarter and the Ghost managed to stay close behind LS. The score by half time was 28-23, LS maintaining their lead.

The second half was the toughest one, with the least amount of scoring accomplished by both teams. WA scored first, with Glidden scoring a three-pointer. Senior Armen Almasian and junior Connor Pandiscio scored as well.

Overall, both teams displayed strong teamwork and defense and neither team was able to score that much. The final score of the quarter was 35-30, with LS continuing to be in the lead.

The last quarter started with the Ghosts’ Almasian scoring. For most of the quarter, there was a steady rise in the scores of both teams.

The last two minutes were filled with energy as both teams tried their hardest to score final points. With multiple shots by Almasian, as well as two back to back shots by Glidden, WA worked hard to score as much as possible. A number of last minute shots were made, but LS emerged victorious at the end.

Coach Christopher Bramanti felt that the team worked a lot in the game and also recognized all underclassmen who came out to play.

“We worked hard. We just didn’t finish it. It’s too bad,” Bramanti said.
