A strong defensive effort in the third quarter and a 36-point performance from Ryan Carney led the Tigers.
The Oliver Ames boys' basketball team likes to win games on the defensive side of the court. Sunday afternoon during the Val Muscato Holiday Tournament Finals, it was no different. After trailing early, the Tigers picked up their defensive pressure in the second and third quarters on their way to a 82-77 win over Walpole to improve to 4-1. Walpole dropped to 2-3.

The Tigers season ended in a 7-0 loss to Walpole in the second round of the MIAA tournament.
When OA field hockey coach Janice Sundell said the Tigers would have their hands full against No. 1 seed Walpole in the second round of the MIAA state tournament, she wasn't kidding. With just 30 seconds gone from the clock, Walpole junior Bridget Nicholson put the ball in the goal to give the Porkers a 1-0 lead. The goal set the tone and the Tigers were never able to recover, eventually losing 7-0 to the perennial power for the second year in a row in the state tournament and ending their season at 8-8-4. "We did not start out well, giving up that lousy goal in the first 30 seconds," Sundell said. That kind of set us back right off the get-go. The girls played hard.
