Gold Prep
team loses
in quarterfinal
The Woodstock Academy Gold prep basketball team lost for only the second time this season and it came against the same team.
Brewster Academy, the No. 8 seed, upset the top-ranked Centaurs, 82-80, in the National Prep Championship Tournament quarterfinals March 6 at Connecticut College.
The Bobcats had also beaten the Centaurs,80-77, in New Hampshire on Jan, 26.
Brewster Academy went on to win the National Championship, despite playing four games in two days, with a 67-51 decision over Scotland Campus Sports March 7.
The loss ended the Centaurs’ season with a 38-2 record.
Woodstock Academy hit nine 3-pointers in the first half  to take a 41-34 advantage, but Brewster Academy rallied in the second half and captured the victory. Jalen Lecque put the Bobcats up, 80-77, with a layup with 17 seconds left, but the Centaurs weren’t done.
Wichita State-bound point guard Noah Fernandes (12 points) tied the game for Woodstock Academy with nine seconds left on a 3-pointer. Joel Brown, however, raced up the floor and hit the game-winning layup with six-tenths of a second to play to give Brewster Academy the win.
Tre Mitchell led the Centaurs with 24 points with the 6-foot-9 center stepping outside the paint for five 3-pointers.
Woodstock Academy finished with 16 3-pointers, as a team, in the game. T.J. Weeks, Matt Cross and Jacob Toppin all finished with nine points for the Centaurs.
