ATTLEBORO, Mass. – After the Mansfield Hornets were able to hold the high scoring Shamrocks of Bishop Feehan to six points in the first quarter, things were looking good.
But that all changed in the second quarter when Bishop Feehan seized the lead, outscoring the Hornets 17-2 and never looking back in a 45-35 decision.
Possessing a five point lead entering the second quarter, Mansfield looked to widen their margin, and to prevent the Shamrocks from heating up from the floor. Feehan had other thoughts in mind and started to use a full-court press that caused havoc for the Hornets.
Emily Miccile started a 6-0 run and Lauren Manis and Marissa Fontaine scored the other baskets in the run, each of them coming off of steals in their end of the court as the Hornets had trouble getting past midcourt.
Jackie Carchedi answered with Mansfield’s lone basket of the quarter off an inbound pass from Jen Peel to put Mansfield up 13-12 – their last lead of the contest. Katie Nelson and Manis guided the Shamrocks to an 11-0 run to end the half, and take a 23-13 margin into halftime.
“The second quarter was the downfall. We just couldn’t make a shot, and really for the first time this year, we didn’t look good handling the ball – we had a ton of turnovers,” Mansfield head coach Mike Redding said. “Once you start turning it over in your end against them, they’re going to eat you alive. If we could have just played a better second quarter, maybe we make a game of it. That was the turning point. I liked how we competed, we just have to make better decisions with the ball, and you just can’t give it to them in their end.”
The Hornets looked to get back into it in the third quarter, but Nelson continued to spark Feehan knocking down all three of her two-point field goals, and Manis kept up her persistent efforts on the offensive boards, collecting three Shamrock misses. Trailing 29-18, Mansfield went on a 5-0 run, and tried to weather the storm. Meg Hill hit a baseline jumper off of a feed from Carchedi then Peel swiped the ball away from Manis and found Hill under the basket. Hill gathered the pass, and was fouled on the shot attempt. The sophomore center knocked down both of her foul shots, and on Feehan’s ensuing possession, the Hornets forced a shot clock violation. Momentum seemed to be mounting as Sarah Mullahy followed by converting two shots from the free-throw line, and cut the Shamrock lead to five at 29-24. However, Feehan wasn’t fazed, and took a 33-24 lead going into the remaining eight minutes of play.
Leading the Shamrocks was Nelson with 18 points, scoring six points in each of final three quarters after being held scoreless in the first frame. Manis recorded a double-double with 15 points to go along with 21 rebounds while Fontaine had eight points and eight boards.
“They did a good job. Nelson floats around and gets open, Fontaine is good at the elbow, Manis is a bump inside. They have a lot of weapons. Miccile can hit the three, Forbes can keep you honest. There are just a lot of people to stop,” Redding said. “We were trying to stop Nelson, and if we play them again, we have to find her better and quicker, can’t let her to go to her left – she’s just really crafty, and is such a smooth shooter. Manis is so athletic in the paint, and I felt that Meg held her own on the boards. It was a good battle – it was a good test for them, it was good for us, that’s why we scheduled it.”
Feehan increased their lead to as much as 18 at 45-27 in the fourth quarter, but Mansfield scored the last eight points of the game including a three-pointer from Ann Maher to put the final score at 45-35.
Although the Hornets failed to gain revenge against the Shamrocks from the D1 South Semifinal loss last season, holding Bishop Feehan to just 45 points shouldn’t be taken lightly. Mansfield is the first opponent that Feehan has faced this season that held them to under 50 points. The Hornets held the Shamrocks to a 28.5% s field goal percentage. Despite the defensive efforts, Mansfield failed to capitalize as they made just 12 of their 47 shot attempts, and the turnovers that Feehan caused didn’t help either.
“We’re a good zone team. We can play man, but against them, there are some tough matchups. We played pretty aggressive in the zone and rotated,” Redding said of his team’s defensive efforts. “Manis is just tough. Sometimes in the zone, you lose track of her when the shot goes up, and she finds openings. I think the downfall was that we wasted too many possessions on offense with too many turnovers. We had some good spurts, but that second quarter was just you pulling your hair out, and I wish we had five timeouts in a quarter.”
The first eight minutes of play was everything that the Hornets could have asked for. Baskets from Hill, Peel, Carchedi, and Julianna Newell led Mansfield to a 9-2 advantage with three minutes left in the quarter. Manis registered all six of the Shamrock points, while being a menace the glass with eight rebounds.
Carchedi was the Hornets high scorer with nine points, Newell finished with eight, and Hill had seven.
Although walking away with a win would have been much sweeter, Redding stated that there’s a lot to learn from the loss, and ultimately feels that the loss will help in the long-run.
“We did some good things. I liked the competition,” Redding said. “It’s going to help us when we play OA and Franklin next week, that’s really why we scheduled it. I think we learned some things today that might help us if we get them again in the tournament in March.”
Mansfield (6-2) returns to league play on Friday night when they host Taunton at 5:30 in a girls-boys doubleheader.
2014-15 Record: 14-9 (10-6) 2014-15 Finish: Lost in Div. 1 South first round Head Coach: Rick Patch
The Bombardiers were disappointed at a first round tournament exit last season and are using that as motivation as they enter the second season under coach Rick Patch. Attleboro enters 2015-16 as one of the favorites in the Kelley-Rex Division and are getting plenty of hype from opposing coaches who feel that the program can win its first Hockomock title.
Expectations are extremely high because Attleboro returns all but two players from last year. The keys pieces will be senior guard Emily Houle and junior forward Sarah Deyo, who were both among the league’s leading scorers a season ago and have had strong off-season playing for their AAU teams. Each is capable of reaching the 1,000-point plateau for their careers but, maybe more important, both also emerged as elite defensive players last season.
Attleboro did not lose much from last year and added a second transfer in as many years with Julia Strachan coming from division rival North Attleboro. The junior forward adds depth to the forward position, shooting touch from deep, and another strong rebounder. Last year point guard Fatima McDonald came into the program and the senior adds toughness to the lineup with more expected from her now that she has a year of experience under her belt.
Sophomore Sam Pierce and senior Emma Vlashi were productive forwards last season and freshman Jordyn Lako is a newcomer to watch for the Bombardiers. Patch said, “Everyone is excited…We have taken the ‘hard hat’ mentality in putting forth a blue collar, blue pride effort. Our players have really focused on becoming great teammates and leaders.”
2014-15 Record: 19-6 (13-3) 2014-15 Finish: Reached Div. 1 Central final Head Coach: John Leighton
Most programs that lose all but one starter from a team that reached a sectional final would be thinking about rebuilding and the need for a transition year as new players get integrated. Franklin is counting on its system and the depth in its program to reload rather than rebuild this year.
The Panthers reload will benefit from a healthy Lauren Rudolph. The senior guard missed a large portion of last season with an injury sustained during soccer season and added a big scoring punch off the bench when healthy, This year, Rudolph will take on a much larger role as Franklin’s primary scorer, but she also gives them a boost defensively and is good passer in the Panthers’ dribble drive set.
The lone returning starter is senior Aubrie Kutil, who gives Franklin size and strength in the post on both ends of the court. Kutil will be aided by senior forwards Erin Skidmore and Caroline Maguire (who recovered from a volleyball injury to play in the opener) to crash the boards. Senior point guard Olivia Adiletto saw a lot of action last year and will take over as a starter. Junior Carli Koffinke is another player that will step into a bigger role as an offensive spark off the bench.
Newcomers like juniors Isabella Faught and Margaux Welsh will help Franklin make another run at the Kelley-Rex title. Leighton said, “We’re blessed to have depth. We have girls that buy into the system and are willing to play their roles, which is huge for us.”
2014-15 Record: 5-15 (3-13) 2014-15 Finish: Missed playoffs Head Coach: Martin Crowley
King Philip has been a competitive program since Martin Crowley took over two years ago with its focus on aggressive defense, rebounding, and being difficult to play against. Although last season did not finish the way that the Warriors had hoped, more than one opposing coach has mentioned KP as a sleeper pick to make a run this year.
Leading scorer Emily Sullivan graduated and Crowley noted that “her scoring can’t be replaced with only one player,” but he feels that the pieces are in place to make up for that loss in production. Senior Maddie Purdue will take over at the point guard position this season and she emerged last year as a solid ball-handler and shooter and never shied away from contact as she took the ball to the basket.
Purdue will get plenty of help from a host of versatile and athletic forwards that gives KP plenty of rebounders and active defenders in and around the post. Senior captain Riley Dalzell showed the ability to step back and knock down shots and she will be joined by classmates Sam Madden, Jen Lacroix, and Olivia Dort.
Freshmen Julia Leroux and Shannon O’Connor will also be added to the mix, as Crowley looks to get the Warriors back into the postseason. He said, “I like where we’re at so far. I like our athleticism and we have good depth. We’re trying to get everyone involved.”
2014-15 Record: 19-5 (13-3) 2014-15 Finish: Reached Div. 1 South semifinal Head Coach: Mike Redding
There is plenty of buzz about the Hornets this season, as Mansfield brings back arguably one of the deepest rosters in the league, including four of its five starters from last year’s team that reached the sectional semifinal. Head coach Mike Redding always says that the goal is to be in the mix for the title at the end of the season, but several coaches have noted that the Hornets could be a threat in Div. 1 South not just the Hock.
Mansfield has loads of experience on its roster. Senior guard Caroline Maher, a former HockomockSports.com Underclassman of the Year, can stretch the defense with her range and is also an elite finisher on the break. Fellow senior Jackie Carchedi was last year’s HockomockSports.com Defensive Player of the Year and adds wing scoring for the Hornets. Seniors Julianna Newell and Sarah Mullahy, fresh off a league title in volleyball, add depth to the forward line.
Jen Peel is back to lead the Hornets as the starting point guard after leading the team in assists and tying for the team lead in points last year. Peel’s ability to get to the basket opens up room on the perimeter for the shooters and draws defenders away from sophomore center Meg Hill. Hill is a double-double threat every game and as she develops more offensively will be a primary weapon for Mansfield this season.
Add in senior guard Jen Kemp, sophomore Ann Maher, among others on the roster and the options are plentiful for Redding. He explained, “We need to work harder on defense, find a good balance on offense with our options and be playing our best ball in February…The parts are all there, we need to put them together and develop some chemistry on and off the court.”
2014-15 Record: 17-6 (14-2) 2014-15 Finish: Reached Div. 2 South semifinal Head Coach: Derek Herber
The graduation of Melissa Beaupre and Danielle Perron and the transfer of Julia Strachan to rival Attleboro have many people assuming that the Rocketeers’ run of three straight league titles will surely come to an end. However, even with the turnover on the roster, North Attleboro has the talent to stay in the mix again in its last season in the Kelley-Rex (for at least four years).
One of the main reasons for optimism is the return of junior guard Ashley Ahern, who flirted with the option of transferring to prep school, but returned to North at the start of the school year. North coach Derek Herber called Ahern’s decision to stay “great not only for the team but for the league.” Ahern gives the Rocketeers a primary scorer at the two guard position and another solid ball-handler on the perimeter.
Joining Ahern on the perimeter will be junior point guard Samantha Taggart and junior Emily Schromm, who will be the third guard in the rotation. The strength of the Rocketeers this season is in the post with senior forward Emily Peters providing leadership and toughness and juniors Caroline Collard and Liz Morehouse adding scoring punch. Collard, in particular, had a breakout season as a sophomore and could be a player to watch offensively for North this year.
The losses from last season’s squad were important, but Herber brings seven players back and is bullish about what the Rocketeers can accomplish. “It’s not going to be helter skelter and run and gun like it was last year,” he said, “but we’re going to play good, solid man-to-man defense.”
2014-15 Record: 9-13 (5-11) 2014-15 Finish: Missed playoffs Head Coach: Walter Harrigan
Taunton struggled with injuries early last season and got off to a sluggish start. As the Tigers got healthier, they finished the season with momentum and ended the year with nine wins. Taunton coach Walter Harrigan is hoping that the momentum will carry over to this winter and give Taunton a chance at getting back to the postseason.
Unfortunately, injuries have popped up again. Senior forward Abby Small, who Harrigan thought was poised for a great season, injured her knee in the soccer team’s playoff game at Wellesley and will be out for at least a while. Harrigan is hopeful that Small can get back on the court at some point this season and give the Tigers a boost. At the start of the season, the Tigers will turn to senior guard Jordan Wade and senior forward Alyssa Gibson to lead the way as both have been in the program for five years.
Junior point guard Jessica Regan will be “critical,” according to Harrigan, as she will get Taunton into its offense every trip. Fellow junior Abbey Kingman is another player that the coach expects to make a big jump this season. There are also seven freshmen and sophomores on the roster highlighted by sophomore wing Hannah Moniz, who at nearly 6 feet tall has the size to cause any team problems and has the athleticism to play on the perimeter or in the post.
Freshman Lily Patneaude could join Moniz in the starting lineup when she returns from an early season injury. Harrigan said, “I’m excited for the season. We’re not really deep, but we’re athletic. Our defense has really improved and I think we have a chance to sneak into states.”

MANSFIELD, Mass. – On Saturday afternoon at the James Albertini Gym, Mansfield hosted the MIAA Tip Off Showcase with proceeds from ticket sales and a 50-50 raffle benefiting the Joe Andruzzi Foundation. St. Mary’s (Lynn) took on Notre Dame Academy (Hingham) in the opener and in the second game of the day, the Hornets hosted Medfield.
It was a successful day for Mansfield in terms of raising funds for charity and on the court, as the Hornets jumped out to an early lead, got playing time for everyone on the roster, and came away with a 55-39 victory over the perennial Div. 2 power.
“In spurts we looked really good and spurts we were sloppy and that it was the first game,” said Mansfield coach Mike Redding after the game.
“I thought we played good D. We wanted to play 50-50 man and zone, so we got a lot of things in for the first game to hopefully carry over into the league.”
Here are several takeaways from the exclusion game against the Warriors:
1. Julianna Newell could be a nightmare for opposing coaches this season. With all the attention that needs to be paid to Jen Peel, Caroline Maher, and Jackie Carchedi on the perimeter and Meg Hill in the paint, Newell is going to see a lot of space to unleash her 10-foot jumper. On Saturday, Medfield consistently left Newell open while focusing on other players and the senior forward was 7-8 from the field for a game-high 15 points.
Redding said of Newell, “One of our hidden secrets is Julianna hitting that midrange jumper. She’s going to get that look and she makes people pay for it. I think that was the highlight of the night.”
2. So much of Mansfield’s success this season is going to depend on the continuing development of Hill. The sophomore center has size that few teams can matchup with and she has the potential to get double-doubles every game. On Saturday, Hill grabbed 11 rebounds and added eight points, but there were still moments when she looked a little tentative finishing around the basket. If Hill can take that next step then Mansfield will be a legitimate threat in Div. 1 South.
Redding noted, “I thought she was good on the boards I just think offensively we need to get her the ball like three feet closer to the basket. She’s settling for the ball six, seven feet away so she can’t finish with a layup. You want to get that power step layup that’s automatic.
He praised Hill’s growth from freshman year and added, “She’s working on it but she has a ways to go in terms of knowing where you are and where you want the ball.”
3. Balance will be the key for the Hornets offensively this season. Caroline Maher (13 points) knocked down three shots from beyond the arc in the opening half against Medfield and that forced the defense to stretch out beyond the arc and opened lanes for Jen Peel (eight points, six assists) to drive into. If Maher and Jackie Carchedi can knock down shots on the perimeter it will open up the Mansfield offense, but Redding insisted that it is equally important that Mansfield not settle for the jumper.
“We took some threes but we didn’t live and die with it,” said Redding. “We got the ball inside.”
For Mansfield to be successful against the strong defenses in the Hockomock, there has to be the balance between getting shots from the outside and making sure that players like Hill and Newell get touches inside.
4. One of the strengths this season will be the depth that Mansfield has on its roster. If Hill is struggling, Redding can turn to Newell, senior Sarah Mullahy, or sophomore Maeve Carney. To give his perimeter players a rest, Redding can turn to seniors Jen Kemp and Anna Chiarolanza and sophomore Ann Maher. He may also get some playing time for freshman Madyson Bendanillo, who showed potential in short spurts on the court against Medfield.
“We played everybody,” explained Redding about Saturday’s game. “That becomes critical when you get into a situation with foul trouble or a kid is out sick. The more you can build depth in this league it pays dividends down the road.”
While it was good to get playing time for the whole roster, Redding knows that the atmosphere will be much different when Mansfield faces Sharon on Tuesday night in the league opener for both teams.
He said, “Now we have to ante it up a little bit more when everything counts and if you’re going to stay in the league race you have to get off to a good start.”
