Varsity League - Week 6

This week’s Varsity Spring League saw close games across the board with all 3 games being decided by single digits.  It also saw 2 teams capture their first win of the season, one of those teams being Walpole getting the first win of the night over Holliston (60-55).  In game 2, Westwood held on for a 9 point win over Foxboro (53-44).  The final matchup was the closest game of the night.  This back and forth game between Needham and Norwood ended with Norwood getting a huge 3 point win (50-47) over the previously 4-1 Needham Rockets. 

Next week is the final week of the regular season and it is also RIVARLY WEEK with all 3 games pitting league rivals against one another.  Game 1 will see Tri-Valley League foes Westwood and Holliston face-off.  Game 2 is a matchup between Hockomock rivals Foxboro and Franklin, with Franklin trying to close out the regular season undefeated.  Finally, game 3 will have arch-rivals from the Bay State Conference face-off with the always entertaining matchup of Walpole vs. Norwood.  This week will be huge for teams jockeying for playoff seeding.  All games will be held at Westwood High School.
