The Revere High School boys’ basketball team was on a roll, having won four straight entering last Thursday’s David Green Holiday Tournament championship game against the Saugus Sachems at Winthrop High School. But the streak was brought to a stop in a 67-47 loss, the Patriots’ first defeat since losing their season opener to Everett. The game started out well for Revere, which raced out to a quick 7-0 lead. From there, however, Saugus took over and pretty much controlled the contest throughout.
Head Coach David Leary and his team then ran into a buzzsaw at home against the Lynn English Bulldogs on Tuesday, suffering a 96-43 loss to an undefeated Bulldogs squad that is putting up points at an alarming pace. Lynn English has been dominant this season. The Bulldogs were ranked third in the state at the beginning of this week and were averaging 89 points a game with an average victory margin of 48 points entering Tuesday’s contest against the Patriots.
The defeat against English left Revere with a 4-3 overall record heading into Thursday night’s Greater Boston League game at Medford (which took place after press deadline). Domenic Boudreau (13 points) and Vincent Nichols (10) both reached double figures in the loss to the Bulldogs.
In last Thursday’s Green Tourney title game, Sal DeAngelis led the way with 13 points and five assists. Nichols contributed 12 points and eight rebounds, and Boudreau added 12 points and six boards. Boudreau was named to the all-tournament team. The Patriots reached the final by downing the East Boston Jets, 67-51, in last Wednesday’s opening-round contest.
