Sharon Boys Basketball Can’t Finish Off Milford

Despite stretches of superb play, the Eagles fell to Milford on Friday.

The Sharon High boys basketball team submitted three strong quarters Friday night but were run past by Milford in the fourth quarter, falling, 58-43.

“I thought we played very well for three periods,” Head Coach Bruce Jackman said. “We just ran out of gas; ran out of energy in the fourth period. A lot has to do with people being sick; we don’t have a lot of depth right now.”

Again without the size or depth advantage, the Eagles entered the battle for Davenport Division supremacy on a seven-game winning streak.

Sharon hit timely 3-point shots and held a 39-30 lead late in the third quarter over the host Scarlet Hawks.

The Eagles performed well in all aspects during that time, Jackman says. “We played good defense, ran our offensive sets really well, held them down so they couldn’t do what they wanted to do. We were very patient; didn’t have too many turnovers.”

Milford came alive from three-point range in the fourth quarter, closing the game on 28-4 run. Jackman says that the game “exploded” during that stretch.

The Eagles (7-4, 4-4) look to resume their winning ways on Tuesday as the squad return to Sharon, against Kelly-Rex opponent Taunton.
