The Tigers beat King Philip at Nixon Gymnasium Tuesday night to improve to 7-4. KP dropped to 1-9.
One thing was clear to Oliver Ames boys' basketball coach Don Byron heading into Tuesday night's Hockomock League contest against King Philip: The Warriors were better than their 1-8 record indicated. "They present some problems – they’ve got good size and their guard play was really good tonight," he said. "They’ve battled everybody all year long with the exception of maybe one game." Byron's prediction proved to be true. The Warriors gave the Tigers all they had, outscoring Byron's squad in the first and fourth quarters. Still, it wasn't enough to defeat Oliver Ames at Nixon Gymnasium. The Tigers defeated the Warriors 67-60 to improve to 7-4 overall. KP dropped to 1-9 overall. While KP battled, it was the little mistakes and turnovers …

Warriors defeat Oliver Ames, 56-52, to wrap up regular season.
With Jake Layman sitting on the bench, the rest of his King Philip teammates showed that they didn’t need the big man to win as the Warriors outlasted Oliver Ames 56-52 in the Hockomock Crossover Classic. It was PJ Lydon who got the home team on the board first, but it was John Mullane who stepped up early in Layman’s absence. The senior scored eight of KP’s first 10 points to give the Warriors the early lead. “This game was about staying on course, knowing what we wanted to do and not going away from it,” King Philip Coach Sean McInnis said. “We had a gameplan and we stayed the course; we believed in them and they believed in our gameplan. The guys are sick of hearing that, when Jake leaves, they’re going to go back to the old KP — this …

Defending state champions defeat Warriors 73-36.
The King Philip girls basketball team came into Friday night's game having to climb a rather large mountain in order to grab a victory over Oliver Ames. Unfortunately it took almost two and a half quarters for the home team to get into a rhythm on the court. Once they did, it was too late, and the defending state champion Tigers left town with a 73-36 win. OA was able to knock down ten points before the Warrior’s Katie Brennan hit one of her two free throws to get KP on the board. The home team would only score four more points the rest of the first quarter and would add another six as they went into the locker room trailing 39-11. The Tigers were able to account for a good number of their first half scoring via the fast break transition…

The King Philip boys' hockey team is officially on a roll. The Warriors have won three straight, including a come-from-behind, 4-1 victory Wednesday night against Oliver Ames at the Asiaf Ice Arena in Brockton. With the win, KP improves to 4-8-1 while the Tigers drop to 5-3-2. After a first period in which OA defenseman Alex Weibler found the net after a Thomas McNeeley assist to put the Tigers ahead 1-0, KP head coach Mark Homer decided to let his players take the reins in the locker room. "I let the boys figure it out for themselves in the locker room," he said. "They were a little bit better in the second period and in the third period they were on fire.
