This was the type of game that would be expected from the top two teams in the division and with the division lead at stake. North Attleboro and Franklin went back and forth tossing haymakers, but in the end it was the Rocketeers that were able to toss the knockout blow.
“This is our house and it’s our last home Hockomock league game for us seniors, so we just said that we’ve worked too hard not to come out and avenge ourselves,” said senior captain Ali McHugh about North’s attitude coming into the game. “We didn’t play well the first time, but we just wanted to come out and punch them in the mouth…metaphorically of course.”
North got revenge for a loss in the Field House back in January by holding on for a 66-60 victory that puts the Rocketeers 1/2-game ahead of the Panthers in the race for the Hockomock League title. Senior guard Jill Costello and junior Danielle Perron each finished with 15 points and junior Melissa Beaupre had 14 for the Rocketeers.Read the full article here
