Patriots down East Boston in David Green Tourney opener

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Since its season-opening loss in overtime to highly ranked Everett, the Revere High School boys’ basketball team has not experienced a defeat. The Patriots stretched their winning surge to four straight games by downing the East Boston Jets in the opening round of the David Green Memorial Holiday Tournament on Wednesday at Winthrop High School.

  Domenic Boudreau led the charge by pouring in 24 points in a convincing 67-51 win over the Jets. The victory improved Revere’s early-season record to 4-1. The Patriots took on Saugus, which defeated host Winthrop in the other opening round matchup, on Thursday for the tourney championship (after press deadline).

  Along with his 20-plus scoring effort, Boudreau added eight rebounds and four assists. He was helped along by 15 points, five rebounds and two blocked shots from Vincent Nichols. Sal DeAngelis also got into the act with eight points and six boards.

  Before Wednesday’s tournament win, Patriots Head Coach David Leary told the press the team has been beset by some injuries and sickness early on. But it’s been able to forge through with good results. “We should be proud of the way we handled ourselves over these first few games,” he said. “We have a lot of work to do, but I think we have the potential to improve and grow as a team.”

  Last Thursday, Revere earned its third win, a 51-34 road triumph over the Kennedy Academy of Health. DeAngelis was one of the top point-getters. He knocked home 10 points and distributed four assists. Also netting 10 points was Alejandro Hincapie, who added five rebounds to his resume. Sophomore Ethan Day put forth a memorable performance by scoring 16 points to lead the team.

  After Thursday’s Green Tourney title game, the Patriots resume the season next Tuesday with a Greater Boston League home contest against Lynn English (scheduled 7 p.m. tipoff). They then travel to face Medford in another league battle next Thursday.
