Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  The Revere High School boys’ basketball team put an end to a five-game losing skid by defeating Chelsea last Thursday and Malden on Tuesday. The wins raised the Patriots’ record to 7-9 overall on the season.

  Revere still has an outside shot at making the postseason but needs to score wins in three of its final four regular-season games to get that goal accomplished. The task began with a home game against the Kennedy Academy for Health at home on Thursday. The Patriots then travel to face Everett next Wednesday.

  Having suffered some recent hard-to-swallow overtime defeats, Revere raced out to a 13-point first-quarter lead against Chelsea last Thursday and only built on that early 15-2 advantage. It was Senior Night for the Patriots, who saw senior captains Domenic Boudreau and Alejandro Hincapie combine for 35 points in an eventual 60-37 triumph. Ahead 30-20 at the half, Revere outscored the opponents 19-13 in the third period to make it a 49-33 game. The Patriots increased the margin from there by holding the visitors to just four points over the final eight minutes. Boudreau poured in 22 points and had 13 rebounds while Hincapie added 13 points and dished out four assists. Also contributing in the Chelsea win were Vinny Vu with four points and five assists, and Sal DeAngelis with five points.

  Tuesday’s 61-56 win at Malden was more impressive, as the Patriots fought back from a 16-point third-quarter deficit. After it was over, Head Coach David Leary said his team showed “great heart.”

  Boudreau and Hincapie teamed up again to head the offensive charge. The two combined for 37 points with Boudreau dropping 21 and Hincapie, who went a perfect 6-6 from the free-throw line, producing 16. Boudreau added six rebounds and four assists to his input in Tuesday’s victory. Vincent Nichols chipped in with a double-digit 10-point effort, and sophomore Josh Mercado came off the bench to score five.
