EHS Basketball Teams Open 2022 GBL Season
The Everett girls and boys basketball team opened play against their Greater Boston League opponents last week.
On the boys’ side, the Crimson Tide took the measure of Revere last Tuesday by a score of 67-53. Everett overcame an early deficit of 17-7 after the first quarter, employing full-court pressure that created Revere turnovers, to slice the margin to 29-27 at the half.
The Everett defense continued to make life difficult for Revere after the intermission, with the Crimson Tide forging a 43-40 advantage after three periods.
The contest remained a tight affair, with Everett holding onto a slim 51-47 lead with four minutes to play, but a pair of steals and layups by the Tide opened up a 55-47 bulge.
The Patriots hung tough, closing the gap to 55-51, but some clutch three-point shooting down the stretch by Everett sealed the victory.
Roger Vasquez (25 points) and John Monexant (15 points) led the way in the scoring column for the Tide.
Two nights later, Everett made it 2-0 in the GBL (2-1 overall) with a victory over Medford, 65-51.
Coach Stanley Chamblain’s squad was set to take on GBL rival Malden yesterday (Tuesday) and then will play in a holiday tournament next week at Cathedral High.
The EHS girls, the defending GBL champs, came up short in its contests with Revere (62-39) and Medford (55-53).
Emilia-Maria Babcock (15 points) and captain Kayley Rossi (14 points) topped the scoring chart for the Lady Crimson Tide in the Revere contest.
In addition to Rossi and Babcock (who is a freshman), members of coach Riley Dunn’s varsity squad include seniors Jane Odiari (F), Ashley Cordeiro (G), and Celeste Fucillo (F) and a host of newcomers: juniors Japhnie Pierre (G), Nehemie Lucien (F), Tatiana Moran (G), Tanaeja Elie (F), Lamiah Wizard (G/F) and sophomore Kaesta Sandy (F).
“We have a lot of newcomers to the team,” said Dunn. “It’s a rebuilding year, but we have a lot of potential.
“We’re very excited for the opportunity to be back on the court for a full schedule of games,” Dunn added. “We’re looking forward to seeing the younger girls step up and make big contributions to this program.”
Dunn and her crew were scheduled to meet GBL foe Malden last night (Tuesday) and will play at non-league rival Arlington next Wednesday.
