The 7th grade basketball team played at Portland on Monday with the B team coming up with a victory
The B team won by a score of 33-17. After a sluggish first half by both teams, the Comets played a solid second half to pull away with the victory. Blake Filipiak led Hayes with 8 points, followed by Justin Odlum and Ethan McCartney, each scoring 6.
The A team lost another tough game, this time 40-37. Nick Ellis scored 12 and Isaiah Bailey had 9 to lead the Comets.
“I thought both teams played really hard, but were a little out of sync to start the game,” said Coach McCartney. “Then we settled down and played really well for most of the second half in both games.”
The Comets play at home vs St. John’s on Wednesday, November 30th with the B game starting at 4:30 pm.
