Hornets Run Out of Gas

Proctor's boys' varsity basketball team hosted NEPSAC AA foe St. Andrews School Saturday afternoon, and while the boys fought incredibly hard throughout the entire game, Proctor's short bench due to an injury to starter Miles Davis eventually caused the Hornets to run out of gas down the stretch against a much deeper and bigger St. Andrews team. The first half saw the Hornets simply unable to score the ball, missing loads of open shots as the Saints extended zone defense was very effective. Down 24-39 at the break, Proctor came out with renewed energy and focus behind the defensive efforts of Mykel Derring '19, Terrell Brown '19, and Bol Akot '20. The Hornets cut into the lead and with 8:30 left in the game, Proctor trailed just 51-54. Unfortunately, turnovers and an inability to box out the much larger St. Andrews bigs led to the opponent ballooning the lead back to 15. Proctor fought down the stretch, but St. Andrews made foul shots and Proctor could not cut the deficit. Derring led the way for the Hornets with 23 points, while Bol added 22 and Brown 18. Proctor plays its third game in as many days as they travel to Bishop Brady High School Sunday to play MacDuffie School at 4:30 pm.
