Fierce Top Wakeman Basketball
Despite the icy conditions, the Fierce were on fire today with all 3 teams winning at home.
8th grade got the morning started with a 70 – 46 victory over Wakeman-Southport in the “backyard” rivalry game. They used smothering defense, crisp ball movement and accurate long-range shooting to get the job done.
6th grade pulled out a high-intensity, back and forth win over Hamden Regional by a final score of 46 – 42. The ball movement and spacing opened up good shot selection for the Fierce. Roan Smith sealed the game from the free throw line with 10 seconds remaining.
4th grade capped off the day with the closest nail-biter of them all. They saw a half time lead diminish into a late game defecit, but were able to muster up just enough offense to pull out the W. Their ball movement was excellent as well. Chase Mehta stepped to the line up 1 with 3 seconds remaining and calmly put the game away.
