Quaboag girls basketball stops Monument Mountain
WARREN -- Quaboag scoring runs in the first and third quarters were too much for the Monument Mountain girls basketball team to overcome, as the Spartans fell 50-42 on Saturday.
Quaboag used a 12-6 first quarter to gain a five-point advantage at halftime. In the third quarter, an 18-5 outburst put the Cougars up for good.
Monument rallied in the final quarter, but could not take the lead.
Haley Korte led the Spartans with 11, and Hunter Cormier added 10.
"The first two quarters were a hard fought game, but we dug a hole in the third," Monument coach Chris Unsworth said. "We gave away too much in the third, but I was happy with how they battled back in the fourth."
Wahconah 54, Lenox 25
DALTON -- Wahconah used a dominant second-quarter run to beat Lenox.
Maddie Sprague led Wahconah with 15 points, and her nine points in the second quarter propelled the Warriors to a 15-point halftime lead.
"Both teams got off to slow starts. ... We turned it up in the second half. We were able to get to the free throw line and we carried that into the fourth quarter," Wahconah coach June Blake said.

With 3 minutes and 13 seconds left in the second, Andrew Wells tied the game at three with his goal from Ben Webb and Aaron Norton. Kyle Smith then put Everett up 4-3 with 12:01 left in the game, but the Indians would score three straight to seal the victory.
