It was a tough night shooting for the BFA-St. Albans boys basketball team when it hosted U-32 on Tuesday night.
The Bobwhites shot only 26 percent from the floor and were 5-of-13 from the floor, while the Raiders shot 46 percent and were 19 of 29 from the free throw line on their way to a 65-38 victory.
The Bobwhites opened the game 0 for 11 shooting in the first quarter, as they trailed 9-2 after the opening frame. They started to come alive in the second with 16 points, as they started to find their rhythm, but so didn’t U-32, as the Raiders outscored the Bobwhites 19-16 in the quarter to take a 28-18 lead at the half.
U-32 kept the Bobwhites at arm’s length through the third quarter before really pulling away in the fourth outscoring BFA 21-10.
Sophomore Noah Earl led the Bobwhites with 10 points, while Charlie Yates and Colin Jolley added seven apiece. Connor leach chipped in with six.
The loss snapped the Bobwhites (2-2) two-game win streak, as they will look to get back in the win column on Monday when they travel to Missisquoi.
