  The Revere High School girls’ basketball team recovered from their two losses at the inaugural Revere Holiday Tournament – and a subsequent loss to Lynn English – by winning two of three to improve to 3-6 on the season.

  The first of those victories came last Thursday at home with a 50-42 win over Greater Boston League (GBL) foe Medford. Center Belma Velic came up big with a 14-point performance to go along with five rebounds and two blocked shots. She was aided by the efforts of Haley Belloise (11 points and six assists), Shayna Smith (11 points and eight rebounds), and Bella Stamatopoulos (six points and two rebounds), who made some key hustle plays, according to Head Coach Chris Porrazzo.

  After being defeated by Lowell on Monday, the Patriot girls got back in the win column Tuesday by knocking off GBL opponent Chelsea, 60-18. Rocio Gonzalez emerged as the team’s top scorer by netting 15 points. Guard Lorena Martinez had a solid all-around game with eight points, six boards, five steals and four assists.

  The Patriot girls played Malden on the road on Thursday and host Everett next Tuesday.

Revere boys end losing stretch with win at Chelsea

  After losing a close one at Medford last Thursday, the Revere High School boys’ basketball team returned to the win column with a close 50-47 triumph at Chelsea on Tuesday. The win ended a three-game losing stretch for the Patriots.

  Senior captains Alejandro Hincapie (16 points) and Sal DeAngelis (14 points) put together strong performances to help lead the way. The two also combined for 13 rebounds. Ethan Day joined the act with eight points to go with five rebounds and three blocked shots.

  Last Thursday, Revere dropped a close 58-54 decision at Medford. Domenic Boudreau was the top points-getter with 14. He also hauled down seven rebounds. DeAngelis (13 points) knocked home three three-pointers, and Hincapie contributed 11 points and five assists.

  The 5-4 Patriots hosted Malden on Thursday night and aren’t scheduled to see action again until next Thursday when they travel to play Somerville.
