  The Mystic Valley Regional Charter School (MVRCS) boys and girls basketball teams opened their 2021-2022 campaigns with victories.

  The boys took care of Nashoba Tech, 47-24, last Friday. The Eagles (1-0) started the game by working together as a unit at both ends of the court and demonstrated a great deal of poise and confidence as the game progressed. Ball movement and aggressive defense were the key elements of the win against the Commonwealth Athletic Conference (CAC) opponent. Junior point guard Michael Tayag led the way for the Maroon & Gold with 21 points and 6 assists. Freshman guard Dalton Kinnon added 11 points in the scoring column, followed by sophomore center Jonathan Saint-Vil (8 points, 8 rebounds), senior guard Jacob Stover (5 points) and freshman forward Carl Damas (2).

  “I’m very proud of the team’s effort in the first game of the season,” Head Coach Tony Ferullo said. “Everyone stepped up and helped each other in true team fashion. The energy and spirit were evident from the beginning and continued throughout the game.”

  The girls took care of business, providing some suspense for the home crowd with a 37-35 verdict over visiting Lowell Catholic. Multiple players logged their first varsity minutes, including freshman Bailey DeLeire, sophomores Breana Nansamba and Rachel Nortelus and senior Gianna Gray.

  The flow of the game had defense carved all over it. Mystic Valley led the way with winning the rebound battle and keeping Lowell Catholic out of the paint. Mystic Valley held the 16-10 advantage at the end of the first half with Gianna Gray pouring in 8. DeLiere (10 pts and 6 steals) had 7 in the final frame to keep Mystic Valley in the lead throughout after a 2-0 lead by Lowell Catholic. Senior captains Mairead St. Clair (4 points and 13 rebounds) and Lily Palomino (6 points and 9 rebounds) controlled the paint the entire game.
