Coginchaug hoopsters get bell rung


On Jan. 28, the Coginchaug boys traveled to East Hampton and were drubbed 84-40.

The Blue Devils kept the first period competitive, allowing only one 3-pointer, and with scores from beyond the arc by Cam Powers and Conor Doyle, and twos from Powers, plus another bucket inside the arc by Devin Rodrigue, the score was 12-12.

However, from there, it was all downhill for the local boys.

In each of the remaining periods, East Hampton scored a minimum of 22 points, with at least four treys in each frame, while the best the Devils could manage was 13 points, with only five points coming in the third period.

East Hampton finished 14 of 30 from 3-point range, and from inside the arc shot an astounding 16 of 19 (84 percent).

Matt Booth led the Bellringers with 21 points on seven treys. He was followed by Marvin Gorgas (16), Colin Parks (14), Jake Vickey (12) and Matt Vasquenza (10).

The only double-digit scorer for Coginchaug was Rodrigue, with 10 points. Josh Smith was the leading rebounder off the bench with six boards. Powers and Zach Terrill netted seven points apiece.

With the loss, Coginchaug fell to 6-4 (5-4 Shoreline Conference).
