he Lynnfield High School
boys’ basketball team (18-
5, fourth seed) won’t be play-
ing in the Division 3 North fi-
nal game this year after getting
bounced byWatertown (21-2),
the top seed, in a North semi-
final game, 58-46, on March 8.
The Raiders went on to beat
Bedford (17-5, sixth seed) in
theNorth finals, 59-52, last Sat-
Ironically, it was Bedford that
eliminated the Pioneers in last
year’s sectional final. Water-
town, however, lost toHanover
in a state semifinal game at the
TDGarden, 46-40, onMarch 13.
It’s small consolation for the
Lynnfield boys, who wanted
the opportunity to avenge last
year’s North final result.
Coach Scott MacKenzie’s
crewdid its best to stay close to
the No. 1 seed. It was a defen-
sive struggle throughout. Lyn-
nfield was losing by only nine
after three quarters, 35-29. It
was a ridiculously low-scoring
game for teams that are noted
for their offensive exploits.
Lynnfield’s Big Three of Bil-
ly Arsenault, Mike Carangelo
and Louis Ellis, like everybody
else, had trouble getting start-
ed offensively. But in the fourth
quarter, they started toheat up.
They scored 20 points in the fi-
nal frame, only to be still out-
scored by their worthy foes by
Arsenault, Lynnfield’s dy-
namic point guard, was a thorn
in Watertown’s side through-
out, andendedupas the team’s
top scorer with 19 points. Ellis
was theonlyother Pioneerwho
finished in double digits with
12. Carangelo chipped in with
eight. Zachary Shone collect-
ed five points, and Bryant Dana
was credited with two.
The Raiders controlled the
boards, getting second chanc-
es at their end of the court,
while maintaining possession
for 20-plus seconds at a clip. No
matter howyou sliced it, the Pi-
oneers hadno chancewith that
strategy – employed byWater-
town’s legendary coach Steve
But an 18-win season can’t
be overlooked, when analyz-
ing the entire schedule, and
back-to-back campaigns that
stretched into March is some-
thing that many teams strive
for, but fewachieve throughout
the three-month ordeal.
