The undefeated Lebanon boys varsity basketball team played a Division II quarterfinal game at home against Souhegan on March 12 in their quest to reach the final four for a fourth year in a row.
Lebanon scoring started slow but built a 14 point lead midway through the second quarter before the Raider offense started to click and Lebanon held a ten point lead at halftime. Souhegan was able to close the gap to five points before Raiders went on a 13 to 0 run to close out the quarter.
Lebanon continued to score in the fourth quarter and lead by as many as twenty points mid way through the last quarter.
With the game in hand the starters came out and Lebanon went on to win 59 -36. KJ Matte (#13) lead the scoring with 15 points. Lebanon will now play Manchester West in a semi final game at UNH March 16 starting at 5:30.
After the game Coach Keith Matte talk about the quarter final game and his hopes for the semi final game on Wednesday:
Good luck to the Raiders. This will be our next Game of the Week with a special premiere Thursday night on WYCU at 8pm.
