Wareham vs Martha's Vineyard
Date/Time: 3/10/2012 12pm Location: UMass-Boston
The #1 seed (Wareham, 20-0) takes on the #2 seed (18-2 Martha's Vineyard) for the Division 3 South Sectional Boys Basketball championship.
We like when the title is contested between teams from our readership base. It speaks of the superiority of our local kids.
Wareham beat Foxboro, Dighton-Rehoboth, and Cardinal Spellman (the school, not the Padre) to reach this point. They barely got by D-R, but the other schools succumbed easily enough. MV tooled up on Dedham, Westwood and Bishop Feehan, winning by an average of 24 points a game or so.
This should be a cataclysmic clash of dueling dunkers! It's also the de facto Cape Cod championship, depending on if you view the Gateway as being part of Cape Cod or not. Until someone beats Wareham, they're the favorite.
Falmouth, Duxbury & Company
Division 2 Girls Hockey action continues, with a local flair.
We have the semifinals this Saturday at Bourne's Gallo Arena. At 5:30, Falmouth (#7, 13-5-1) takes on Westwood (#6, 14-5-1). Falmouth iced Wellesley and Walpole (2-1 shootout!) to get here.
I may have a bit of local bias here, but my sources tell me that Falmouth has the tiger blood. Westwood is a nice town, and those girls can look forward to Other Things than hockey supremacy.
The winner of that plays the Duxbury/Belmont winner. Belmont is the #5 seed, and is 14-4-2. #1 Duxbury is undefeated over 19 games, and went 13-1 in 2 games against Archbishop Williams and Sandwich. Duxbury girls are the best in the state, and they should whip Miss Belmont like she stole somethin'.
Falmouth/Westwood starts at 5:30 PM. Duxbury/Belmont goes down at 7:45. Both games will be played at Bourne's Gallo Arena.
The winners meet 3/18 at the Gahhhhhhden to see who rules the other.
