Old Colony girls basketball’s scoring has been up and down throughout the 2019-20 season. Hailey Hathaway has played well for the Cougars, then there’s Kat Kirby, as well.
Then there’s Savanna Halle, who just had a monstrous game for Old Colony on their 46-42 win over Norfolk Aggie. The junior accounted for 54.3 percent of Old Colony’s scoring, finishing with 25 points.
“She had a phenomenal night,” Old Colony girls basketball coach Craig Lincoln said.
Halle also knocked down two 3-pointers, one of them being the go-ahead bucket in the fourth quarter.
The win was the Cougars’ first in the Mayflower Athletic Conference Small Vocational Division (1-1). Overall, Old Colony is 5-4 on the season.
Old Colony boys basketball also won their matchup against Norfolk Aggie, bouncing back from their 67-58 loss against South Shore. The 80-34 win brings Old Colony’s record to 8-2 on the season. It’s also the Cougars’ first win in the Mayflower Small Vocational Division in 2019-20.
Hunter Soares has led the Cougars in scoring in each of the past two games. He scored 16 points against South Shore and 15 in the win over Norfolk.
After only scoring nine against South Shore, Jojo Cortes scored 13 against Norfolk.
Howell (11), Taylor (10), and Keller (10) each finished in double figures against Norfolk, after Taylor was the only one of the three to finish with 10-plus points against South Shore (11).
“It was great to see all members of the team in the score sheet,” Old Colony boys basketball head coach Matt Trahan said. “We had great intensity off the bench.”
Old Rochester Regional
If any South Coast Conference girls basketball team has any aspirations of winning the league title, they’ll need to find a way to knock off Old Rochester. The Bulldogs’ only two losses of the season have come at the hands of Falmouth, which means ORR is a perfect 6-0 in SCC play (7-2 overall).
ORR girls hockey improved to 5-4-2 on the season with a comfortable 5-2 finish against Scituate. Erin Craig led the Bulldogs with two goals. Julia Elicier also scored once in the win, while Isabell Stone led ORR with two assists.
The Bulldogs are 3-1 in the Southeast Massachusetts Girls Hockey League this season.
ORR boys swimming continued its strong season with a 90-67 win over Durfee to improve to 4-2 on the year. The meet was outside of the SCC, so the Bulldogs’ record in the league remains 1-1.
