In front of a raucous home crowd, Deerfield built a 14-point halftime lead against the Westminster School on the sharpshooting of Evan Boccia ‘22 and the inside play of Alex Haight ‘22.
The second half went back-and-forth with Westy cutting the lead to four points at the seven minute mark.
Anchored by the steady floor management of captain Davis Mead ‘22, and the gutty performance of captain Max Kainamura ‘22, the Deerfield squad steadily rebuilt its lead, finishing the game with a comfortable 13-point margin. At the final buzzer, the score was 70-57 for the Big Green.
The team will return to action for their final regular season game of 2021 on Wednesday, December 15 at Pomfret. Tip off is set for 3:30pm.
