Last Friday the Kearsarge Cougars boys basketball team traveled to Newport, New Hampshire to take on the Tigers. Newport struggled last year with a lot of young players while Kearsarge lost in the division three championship. The Cougars were clearly the favorites so let’s see if the Tigers were able to stop Kearsarge’s high powered offense.
The Cougars definitely did not want to start off the year with two losses but the teams that beat them, Stevens and Hopkinton, are expected to be ranked in the top five toward the middle of the season. So this early 1 and 2 record could be considered misleading.
