The Tigers are now the team to beat in the Hockomock League.
Whether you're in the Kelley-Rex "big school" division or the Davenport "small school" division, it is becoming clear that the Oliver Ames girls' basketball team is now the team to beat in the Hockomock League. The undefeated Davenport leading Tigers defeated Kelley-Rex leading North Attleboro, 59-48 Tuesday night at the Nixon Gymnasium to improve to 9-0. The Red Rocketeers lost their second game of the season (and their first Hockomock League game) to drop to 8-2 overall. "This was a bar fight in a good sense," Oliver Ames coach Elaine Clement-Holbrook said. "It wasn’t dirty, just both teams played hard right down to the wire so I’m really happy that we just hung in there and kept fighting." Oliver Ames was led by strong defense and a …

Nick Bruha is now six points away from 1,000 career points.
When Oliver Ames senior forward Dwayne Johnson dove to the hardwood in the second quarter, drawing the crowd to its feet and earning a Tiger possession, it was clear that Tuesday night's game against North Attleboro was going to be a slug fest. "A lot of it was just because of hustle," OA head coach Don Byron said. "[Johnson] hit the floor a couple of times and he really got us going." On the back of hustle from Johnson and solid defensive play from junior guard St. Claire Ryan, the Tigers out-battled the Red Rocketeers and improved to 7-4 with a 66-48 win on the road. For North Attleboro, which now sits at 1-10, finding a way to score on a stiff defensive front was a problem. "We didn’t play very good guard defense and we couldn’t score…

Mansfield, North Attleboro and King Philip all have a chance to advance.
It has been an exciting year for Hockomock League football and it will come down to the wire this Thanksgiving for both Kelley-Rex and Davenport Division teams. For the Kelley-Rex Division, three teams will have a chance to advance to the MIAA playoffs. King Philip, North Attleboro and Mansfield will all be in the mix. King Philip and North Attleboro will need to win their games against Franklin and Attleboro while Mansfield, which plays non-divisional Foxborough, will have to scoreboard watch. If both KP and North Attleboro win, there is a three-way tie. Because Mansfield has allowed the most points, the Hornets will be eliminated and King Philip will advance because of a head to head victory over North Attleboro. If North Attleboro loses…
