The Huskies took on Brewster in a New Hampshire rivalry game on Wednesday night. This was New Hampton’s first home game since their most recent road trip to Maine. The Huskies and Bobcats traded baskets the entire first half. David Henriquez provided the strength in the middle, scoring 6 of the first 8 points for the Huskies. Marcus Peterson added in 9 first half points, while Adrian Juilland-Johnson was a great facilitator, finding open teammates for easy buckets. Even with their strong play, New Hampton found themselves down 22-23 at the half.
New Hampton came out firing in the second half. Guthrie Little played his usually stingy defense that led to run outs for the Huskies and they found themselves on an 8-2 run to start the half. The Bobcats responded after an early first half time out and the contest turned into a game of runs. New Hampton’s final run came with about 6 minutes left in the game where they pounded the ball inside and stringed together several stops, which proved to be the finishing blow. Brewster rallied late but were unable to close the gap completely. The final score was 52-46.
David Henriquez had a double-double for the Huskies, scoring 12 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Marcus Peterson led the way with 17 points, while Guthrie Little chipped in 10. On behalf of the team, we would like to thank all of you that came out to support. The Huskies are back at home against Hillside on Friday with a 4pm tipoff.
