Broncos Girls’ Basketball Get Two Wins, Boys Suffer Loss

The Alvirne High School Girls’ Basketball team tacked on two more wins between this week and last to up their record over the .500 mark at 5-4 as they hit the halfway point in the Winter season.
The Lady Broncos only had one game last week, taking on the Trinity High School Pioneers at home on Friday night, Jan. 19, beating them quite handily by a score of 71-41.
The 30-point win put the team at 4-4 with junior forward, Ella Hartson, leading the way for her team with 20-points.
Senior guard, Rachel Allard, had 19-points in the victory, while freshman forward, Courtney Anderson, put up 14-points.
On Monday night, at home, the Broncos got their fifth win of the season with a close 47-43 victory over the Manchester Memorial girls.
The home team finished the first quarter with a 17-10 lead, but were only able to score eight points in the second quarter, allowing the visitors to get back into it with a 25-20 score at halftime.
In the third period, the Broncos added 10-points, but a Manchester 14-point surge brought the score to within one, at 35-34.
In the final period of the game, the Broncos held on and claimed a four-point victory.
Anderson came away with 20-points and Hartson finished with 13-points.
On the Broncos Boys’ Basketball court, Alvirne suffered its fifth loss of the season and moved the team to 3-5.
The Hudson squad traveled to Manchester on Friday night, Jan. 19, where they lost to the Trinity High School Pioneers 57-37.
The win gave Trinity their sixth victory of the season and they now sit at 6-3.
Both Alvirne basketball teams will take on the Londonderry High School Lancers this week.
The boys will travel to the LHS gymnasium on Wednesday night, Jan 24, for a 7 p.m. start and the Lady Broncos will be at home starting at 6:30 p.m.
