Boys Basketball extends win streak to 5 games on Senior Night

Boys Basketball struggled early on but found their rhythm and dominated the second half, beating Dedham 74-55. 11 players scored points with 3 players in double-digits – Walko, Johnson & Hassell. 

The Boys moved the ball around very well in the second half.  Almost every other basket was scored after every player had touched the ball.  It paid off too, as the Wildcats had 8 scorers in the 3rd quarter alone.  Senior Ethan Walko lead the way with 17 points, 15 from downtown.  Hassell and Johnson each had 11. The Wildcats had 11 3-pointers in the game, while going 11-16 from behind the line. The 9 Seniors honored tonight were; Sam Ferrara, Christian Reddick, Ethan Walko, Samson Yuan, Jahbari Headley, Micah Wickham, Daniel DeBenedictis, Aidan Johnson, Owen Keany and Denton Garrett. Congrats to them and the rest of the Wildcats on their 11th win of the season, as they look to slide up in the seedings. Record : 11-6

Boys Hockey Battle Braintree to 3-3 Tie

Boys Hockey found themselves ahead 1-0 after the first period, thanks to goal from Allen, assisted by McManus.  The Wildcats were unlucky not have had more goals in the first period, after play was signaled dead as the puck rolled into an empty net.  Milton doubled their lead in the second period, with McDougall scoring from an Allen assist. Entering the third period up 2-0, Milton took their foot off the gas and Braintree applied the pressure.  The Wamps tied the game after a tough angle shot trickled in.  With just over two minutes to play, Aaron Hause chased a loose puck into the zone, and with a long reach, snapped a shot short side with an incredibly tough angle to put the Wildcats in front.  The lead lasted less than a minute after a sustained forecheck saw Braintree pull one back.  John Driscoll made a few fantastic stops in net, none better than the sprawling save shortly before Dylan’s goal in the second period.

Milton next play on Saturday, at 6:00pm, against Dedham for their senior night.

Boys Basketball Beats Braintree with Buzzer-Beater

What a way to earn a spot in the tournament! Boys Basketball dug themselves a hole in the first half but found a way back to beat the Wamps by way of a buzzer-beating put-back from Eddie Hassell, who lead the way with 21 points.

The Wildcats could only muster up 6 points in the first quarter, and trailed by as many as 12 in the first half.  Entering the second half down 9 points, the Wildcats rallied around junior Hassell while senior captain Ethan Walko splashed 2 3-pointers in the third quarter.  Braintree took advantage of the free ones, shooting 22-32 from the line.  Milton, on the other hand were only awarded 4 free throws, going 3-4.  Wamps Senior Nicolas Timberlake (28 points) continued to knock down shots the in the second half, but Milton slowly ate away at Braintree’s lead.  Trailing 47-44, Walko drilled a crucial 3-pointer to tie the score at 47-47. In what has become known as “IT-Time” around Boston, Hassell looked a lot like Isaiah Thomas, finishing some well contested shots in the lane.  Three of his layups finished with him watching the ball fall through the net while he lay on the floor.

In the closing seconds, freshman Earl Tucker dished the ball out to Aidan Johnson, who put up a good shot from outside the arc, before Hassell came in and tipped in the rebound as the clock expired.  As the ball fell through the net, the buzzer sounded, sending the Wildcats into the Tournament.  This win marks the 4th win out of 6 games vs the big schools in the Carey Division. They will host Dedham on Thursday for their senior night at 6:30 pm.

Girls and Boys Basketball beaten by Rebels

Both the Boys and Girls Basketball Teams were beat by Walpole this evening.  The Boys lost on the road 70-64 while the Girls were dealt a 61-34 loss by a very talented side.

Walpole’s captain, Fogarty, finished with 25 points, including 15 from downtown.  Milton’s J Needham finished with 8, while Vega had 7.  The Wildcats started off well and kept it close until 5 second-quarter 3s opened the lead to 11 entering half-time.  Milton then struggled to get their offense going and found no luck from behind the arc.  They played stern defense but the Rebels passed the ball around extremely well. The Wildcats fought hard and should look forward to another test on Friday, as they host Wellesley.
