Eight games into the South Coast Conference play and Old Rochester regional girls basketball still has yet to find an opponent who can best them.
The Bulldogs’ only two losses on the year came outside of league play.
As has been the case for the Bulldogs over the years, they’ve had contributions from the entire roster, with no one player emerging as the team’s lone dominant scorer.
Meg Horan is playing like Old Rochester Regional’s No. 1 scorer, so she could be the one who has the basketball in her hands late in close games. Her season-high point total (17) is currently the highest mark on the team this year.
Meg Hughes has been a major contributor, as expected, as has the case been with Mary Butler, who, like Hughes, is a tenacious defender.
Butler is also one of ORR’s strongest rebounders.
Maggie Brogioli has also played well for the Bulldogs throughout the year, being among the team’s top scorers, rebounders, and defenders. Her classmates, Logan Fernandes and Cadence Johnson, have also performed well for the Bulldogs this year.
The Bulldogs will follow up their Tuesday matchup against Seekonk with a trip to Apponequet on Friday at 6:30 pm. Then, on Sunday, the Bulldogs visit Dartmouth for a 2:00 pm tip-off.
ORR girls hockey lost their recent game against Norwell 4-3. The Bulldogs dropped to 5-6-2 on the season with the loss (3-2-1 Southeast Massachusetts Girls Hockey League).

After the Bulldogs visit Bishop Stang on Wednesday, they host Sandwich at Gallo Ice Arena in Bourne on Saturday at 5:30 pm.
ORR boys basketball won their latest matchup with Somerset Berkley 74-69, thanks in large part to the efforts by Jonah DePine, who finished with 29 points and seven rebounds in the tightly contested contest. While he did a lot of the heavy lifting throughout the game, Luke Burke scored three of his 15 points in the final second of the game to help lift the Bulldogs.
“I’m very proud of this basketball team right now,” ORR boys basketball coach Steve Carvalho said.
Alex Wright also finished with double figures for Old Rochester, scoring 11 points. Ryon Thomas did, as well. He had 10.
As a team, the Bulldogs finished with 10 3-pointers made. Burke led in that department finishing with five; DePina had three.
Burke also grabbed 10 rebounds to finish with a double-double. He blocked a whopping four shots, as well.
Following their Tuesday trip to Seekonk, the Bulldogs (6-6, 4-3 SCC) play host to their SCC rivals, Apponequet.
Old Colony boys basketball is officially tournament bound after knocking off Bristol Aggie.

Hunters Soares had the best scoring night of his high school career in the win. He led the Cougars with 31-points, drilling five 3-pointers throughout.
Ethan Keller and Noah Perdiago were second in scoring for the Cougars; they each finished with 12 apiece.
The Cougars are now 10-3 on the year, 3-1 in the Mayflower Athletic Conference Small Vocational Division.
