The Old Rochester Boys Basketball Team came out on top against Norton on Saturday night at Taunton High. The Bulldogs topped Norton in the Division 3 Boys’ South final 64-53 to become the South Sectional Champions!
The Bulldogs led most of the game but saw their lead dwindle to 4 points with only 2 minutes to go. It was a nail biter as Noah Fernandes sent the ball out to senior captain, Jordan Menard, who buried a 3-pointer from the corner to make it 55-43 with a minute and a half left. The Lancers never recovered. Jordan is known for always hitting the big shots and proved that in the game against Norton. Menard finished with 9 points and 9 rebounds.
Freshman Fernandes scored 22 points in the game and played well, making it hard to believe he is only a freshman.
Scoring 11 points and 8 rebounds to contribute to the win was 6′ 5″ center Matt Valles.
The Bulldogs will be heading to the Eastern Mass Championship at TD Banknorth Garden in Boston on Tuesday, March 10th at 4PM. It will be ORRHS vs. Pentucket. What an honor to be playing in Boston! The boys have worked really hard for this and hope to see the Dog Pound Full. Tickets for the game can be bought online at ticketmaster or can be bought at the door. Wear Red to support your team! Go Bulldogs!
