VA Hot Shooting Sinks Hornets

Proctor Academy's boys' varsity basketball team hosted NEPSAC AA and Lakes Region foe Vermont Academy Friday night in the Farrell Field House in a rematch of an early season blow-out loss to the Wildcats. Through the first five minutes, the game remained tight as the teams exchanged baskets. Proctor's offense stagnated against the VA match-up zone midway through the half, however, as Vermont capitalized on a hot shooting night and a porous Proctor defense. Trailing 32-51 at the half, Proctor came out in the second stanza with increased intensity, but was still unable to slow the VA offense down. Proctor's Bol Akot '20 (22 points) and Terrell Brown '19 (22 points, 15 rebounds) both put in outstanding effort on both ends of the floor, and Mykel Derring '19 added 18 points, while Miles Davis '19 had ten. Ultimately, the effort was there for the Hornets, but the execution lacked. Proctor looks to rebound for a busy four game week next week as they travel to Cushing Academy (Wednesday), Holderness School (Friday), host St. Andrews School (Saturday) and play MacDuffie School on Sunday at Bishop Brady High School.
