Jaguars slay unbeaten

Windham girls basketball earned its biggest win of the season, beating previously undefeated Goffstown 64-45 last Tuesday. The Jaguars (9-4, 7-3 NH) led 20-9 after the first quarter and never let up. Sarah Dempsey poured in a season-high 25 points, and Sam Adamson had 14.

 

Astros end with flurry

Windham 145-pounder Ty Ham pinned his opponent to give the Jaguars a 30-24 lead over Pinkerton, but the Astros won the final five matches between 152-195 pounds — all by pins — to earn a 54-30 win last Wednesday. Sterling McLaughlin had the most impressive pin of the run at 182, pinning his opponent in 42 seconds.

 

Lancers fall

Anthony Federico and Zac Rheault scored for Londonderry boys hockey, but it wasn’t enough in a 3-2 loss to Hanover on Saturday. The Lancers fell to 4-6-1.

 

Last man standing

Pinkeron boys hockey had five different goal-scorers in a 5-1 win over Exeter last Wednesday, but it was John Last and his three assists that helped facilitate the offense.

 

Jags win big

Windham got its second win in Division 1 by drubbing Timberlane, 66-34 on Friday. Luke Schramm, Riley Desmarais, Cole Flenniken and Matt Logue were all in double figures for the Jaguars. 

 

King for a day

Megan King scored a season-high 9 points on a pair of 3s to help Pinkerton earn a 48-40 win over talented Goffstown (8-2) on Friday. Brooke Kane led the way with 19 points for the Astros (10-3, 9-1 NH), and Madison Mahoney had 12.

 

Lancers rolling

Londonderry boys basketball picked up its third straight win Friday night, beating Nashua South 65-42. The Lancers (6-2) got 15 points from Ethan May and 14 each from Max DesRoisers and Cole Keegan.

 

Astros finish 5th

Pinkerton’s bowling team struggled to fifth at a meet with Bishop Guertin, Dover, Souhegan and Stevens on Saturday. The Astros were the 5th seed after a two-game standard ten pin total of 1479, their lowest of the season. Jason Barton rolled games of 160 and 135, Meghan Slater 138 and 128, Matt Gagnon with a season-high of 184 and 146, Bryant Nourse 157 and 149 and Lance Lemieux 137 and 145.

Souhegan, the No. 4 seed after the first round, defeated Pinkerton in the single-elimination preliminary baker round by two pins, 152 to 15.

 

Dane does it all

Ryan Dane won the 55 dash (6.74), was second in the long jump (20-0), third in the 300 (38.14) and ran on the winning 4x400 for Pinkerton in a New Hampshire multi-meet on Sunday. Astro Matt Small won the high jump (6-0).
