Recent Game Recaps

Hanover Rec.
Loss 38-39

If the goal was to end the season with an amazing game, Cardigan’s Thirds Basketball Team certainly accomplished that.

Hanover, the site of the most lopsided loss of the season had a very different feel this time around.

The Cougars were absolutely attacking the basket in the first quarter, Ben Fenner ‘19 and Bill Ke ‘20 were unstoppable playing pick and roll basketball, while Hudson Heinemann ‘22 and Layton Glover ‘22 were both solid from the Point Guard position, keeping the defense spread out. Sky Wong's ‘20 second chance buckets forced Hanover to work harder to box out. The Cougars held a lead at halftime.

As predicted, Hanover came out of the gates attacking in the second half. The Cougars got into foul trouble, and, with Hanover in the double bonus midway through the third quarter, the lead started to dwindle. Several breakaway layups didn't find the basket and all of a sudden the Cougars were in a back and forth affair. Excellent defense by Jack Hines ‘20 and rebounding by Santi Bueno ‘20 kept the team in the game.

Down 3 with 4 seconds left, Bill Ke ‘20 hit the front end of a 2 shot free throw attempt. On the second shot, Ben Fenner ‘19, as he had done all season, grabbed the rebound and cooly tied the game, sending it in to overtime.

In the extra frame, the game continued to be a back and forth affair, but Hanover hit a few key shots and held a one point lead with 8 seconds left. The Cougars got two open looks at the basket, but the lid stayed shut and Hanover celebrated a well-deserved win.

Overall, this has been an exceptional season and an extraordinary team. This group of young men are a team in every sense of the word and should be very proud of themselves.

Cornish Elementary
Win 28-17

On the night of February 13th, Cardigan’s Thirds Basketball Team made the long trek to Cornish, Nh to play the same team they narrowly defeated in an overtime, earlier in the season. As Coach Lawson and Coach Estridge had expected, the Wildcats of Cornish had been working hard to avenge their prior loss and were ready to throw everything they had at the Cougars.Fortunately, the Cougars had also been working hard and after a slow start, were able to tighten up their defense and get their offense hitting on all-cylinders. Will Sabat ‘20 led the team in scoring with 11 points, including an impressive three-pointer from downtown. In addition, the Cougars' point guards were able to successfully distribute the ball around the court, resulting in a total of 8 Cardigan players scoring points on the night.

Mid Vermont Christian
Loss 26-45

For the second time this season, Mid Vermont Christian School proved it's one of the strongest middle school teams in the area, throwing a barrage of 3 pointers at the Cougars and running away with a win.

The game started out as a battle, with Bill Ke ‘20 and Ben Fenner's ‘19 pick and roll game proving to be impossible for MVCS to defend. The Cougars held a one point lead late in the first half.

At this point, MVCS switched to a tight zone defense and on offense they hit five 3 pointers in a row, to open up a big lead.

In the second half, the Cougars held MVCS to only 15 points, but the damage had been done. Despite improved Cougar rebounding and effort on defense, MVCS walked away with a convincing win.

Loss 29-36

The Cardigan Thirds Basketball Team lost to Eaglebrook on Saturday despite a tremendous effort.

The Cougar’s much improved defense held Eaglebrook to only 8 points in the first and help a a two point lead going into the second.

Unfortunately, the Eagles were able to turn strong defensive pressure into quick offense and also got hot from the 3 point range, early in the second half. to pull away.

Indian River School
Win 39-26

Heading into a well-deserved break, Cardigan Thirds basketball team beat an improved Indian River team 39-26.

On display all day was very strong Cougar defense, led by both Hudson Heinemann ‘22 and Layton Glover ‘22 who split time at Point Guard. The Cougar defense shut down Indian River’s ability to handle the ball, which led their opponent to struggle getting their offense going.

Offensively, several Cougar players provided sparks including captains Bill Ke ‘20 and Ben Fenner ‘19, who chipped in 10 and 9 points respectively. Jack Hines ‘20 continued his recent trend as a rebounding machine as Tommy Li ‘20 and Zejun Li ‘20 were both effective off the bench.

The Cougars improve to 6-5 on the season and look to avenge an earlier loss against Eaglebrook, on Saturday.
