Mansfield Pulls Away From King Philip

By Cameron Merritt, HockomockSports.com Contributor

MANSFIELD, Mass.- Led by seniors Sam Goldberg (15 points) and Christian Weber (13 points), the Mansfield Hornets beat the King Philip Warriors, 58-39, on Tuesday night inside James Albertini gymnasium.

“I was excited with our efforts in the second and third quarters, I thought we did a good job of responding and playing well,” said Mansfield coach Mike Vaughan. “I thought we had a nice routine, and when we got in the rhythm, offensively we were able to score some points.”

“I thought we played hard but didn’t concentrate well enough on offense,” said King Philip coach Mark Champagne. “[Mansfield’s] a good team, they’re well-coached, and they made us pay for mistakes, but we stayed in our stance pretty good, I thought we competed a little better, [but] the offense wasn’t good at all.”

Alongside Goldberg and Weber, Tyler Boulter added nine points for the Hornets, all coming in the first half. The Warriors lead scorer of the night, Noah Goodwin, also had nine points.

Both sides initially struggled to sink shots after the tipoff, with the Hornets and Warriors exchanging chances and misses alike. Boulter opened the scoring for the Hornets with a three point shot.

While the two teams exchanged baskets early on, Mansfield never relinquished its lead, with the closest King Philip coming being after Pharoah Davis‘s shot brought the Warriors within one at 5-4.

A relatively low-scoring first quarter ended with King Philip’s Will Weir sinking a buzzer-beating three, making it 13-11, but in the second quarter, the Hornets began to break away. The Hornets extended their lead to double digits when Benjamin Albanese‘s three-pointer made it 29-19. The Warriors struck back before the half, and remained within striking distance as they trailed the hosts 29-21.

The second half opened similarly to the first, as both sides struggled again to sink their initial shots until Goodwin’s shot from outside the paint broke through the gridlock. After a slow start, in part due to a strong defensive effort from the Warriors’ guards, the Hornets began hitting their stride again after Goldberg sunk two free throws after being fouled on Kyle Layman, and quickly hit another basket on their next offensive possession.

Weber hit a quick five points to extend the Hornets lead to 12, but thanks to Layman’s layup, King Philip brought the game back within 10 at 42-32. A free throw by Layman after a foul made it 42-33 as the two Kelley-Rex opponents headed into the final eight minutes of action.

Mansfield’s Ryan Otto hit a three pointer to start off the quarter, and it set the pace for the Hornets to continue extending their lead. Though the Warriors, led offensively by Layman, continued to fight on, in the end the Hornets would be too much for them to contain. Goldberg’s seven fourth-quarter points lead the way, while Albanese and Sam Hyland added on and Mansfield sealed another league victory.

“We’ve got to build [on our success],” said Vaughan. “We’ve got to continue to play well and play positive, and continue to do some good things and I think we can take a lot of things out of tonight’s result.”

Both teams return to action Friday night, with Mansfield (8-2 overall, 6-1 Hockomock) traveling to Easton to take on Oliver Ames, while King Philip (3-7, 2-5) travel to rivals Franklin.

WRENTHAM, Mass. — First year King Philip head coach Mark Champagne is still in the feeling out process but it appears he’s found something that works for his Warriors.

Champagne expanded rotation resulted in 10 different players scoring, a more consistent defensive effort and a 69-53 win over visiting Canton.

Beyond Champagne’s starting five of Seth Sullivan, Justin Vine, Tom Madden, Will Weir and Kyle Layman, the Warriors got extended runs from Pharaoh Davis and Noah Goodwin as well as minutes from Brendan King and Adrian Castillo. The Warriors got 19 points from the bench.

“We’re still feeling out some situations,” Champagne said. “There’s not a big difference between our six, seven, eight and nine guys – I said, why aren’t we playing more guys? I think it helped with our defensive intensity, I think we were able to maintain it longer. I thought we did a good job recovering and making them tough shots. We haven’t played that many guys in the first two games but I think it’s something we should do.”

That defensive effort limited Canton to just seven points in the first quarter as KP held a four point advantage after one. With fresh legs in the second quarter, the Warriors offensive exploded for 23 points.

Canton’s Eric Olshaker came away with a steal and Devin Foster, who scored 14 of his career-high 24 points in the second quarter, converted on the other end to bring the Bulldogs within two at 18-16. That’s when KP really created separation.

First, Layman (team-high 16 points, five rebounds) drilled a three and after an offensive rebound, Sullivan hit a three of his own. Weir added a bucket in the paint before Layman connected for another three pointer to create a 10-point lead, 29-19. Sullivan added a late three and KP took a 34-25 lead into the locker room.

Six points apiece from Vine and Layman helped carry King Philip’s offense early while Goodwin added a basket late off the bench. KP allowed just nine points in the third quarter and took a 50-34 lead after three quarters.

“I thought our inside presence was good,” Champagne said. “I thought it was good last Friday too, but we just had a bad third quarter overall. Our length helped close out on their shots too. They have a couple of pretty talented kids. We knew they’d get a certain amount of points but overall I thought we contained them pretty well.”

Canton had its best offensive quarter in the fourth, scoring 19 points but King Philip matched it each step of the way with 19 points of their own.

“They spread it around, they had good depth and they had a lot of guys hurt us in a lot of different ways,” Canton head coach Ryan Gordy said. “Right now we need to do a better job of getting more guys involved, maybe we need to tweak some offensive sets and find ways to get more guys to contribute offensively for us. It’s not going to cut it with just two guys scoring for us.”

Beyond Layman, Vine finished with 11 points and three assists, Weir had 10 points and seven rebounds, Sullivan had six points and King added six points off the bench.

Tony Harris added 15 points and six rebounds for the Bulldogs while Danny Hartnett and Jake Verille each had six points.

Canton (0-3, 0-3) will look for its first win when they return to action after the holidays on Thursday, December 29th with a trip to Middleboro.

“It’s just about getting better and honoring that process and really focusing on one day at a time and finding ways to improve,” Gordy said.

By Ryan Lanigan, Editor-in-Chief
WRENTHAM, Mass. – King Philip amped up their defensive pressure to turn a seven point lead after a quarter to a 21 point lead by halftime and never looked back to pick up a 63-35 win over Barrington. The win marked the third straight for the Warriors.
The Warriors built a 9-0 lead over the first five minutes of the game but Barrington — who was a state finalist in Rhode Island last season — battled back to get within four. KP senior Ben Smith drained a three shortly before the buzzer to push the lead back to seven.
In the second quarter, the Warriors amped up their pressure in their 2-2-1 press and then in their 2-3 zone. The Warriors also cleaned up their own misses to create separation.
Freshman Kyle Layman started the run, grabbing a defensive rebound and then taking a pass from Seth Sullivan. Smith drained another three, Goodwin added back to back field goals, Layman made a putback plus the harm, Goodwin drained a three, Layman converted another offensive rebound, and Pharoah Davis drove to the basket to complete a 19-0 run.
“I thought we got some opportunities in their zone that we didn’t really cash in on and I thought we were getting the ball where it needed to go but I think we were being a little impatient in that first quarter,” King Philip head coach Matt Coute said. “Eventually we let the offense come to us. I think the key in that second quarter was we ended up pushing the ball more in transition. We wanted to take advantage of our athleticism and strength. I told the guys to be more aggressive in the 2-2-1 in terms of trapping and getting in the passing lanes. We were able to get some easy ones to kind of push the lead and make them play on their heels.”
In the second quarter, the Warriors shot 60% from the field, hitting nine of their 15 field goal attempts.
“A lot of that was what type of three’s we are taking and a couple baskets in transition instead of a lot of contested shots in the half court which was happening some in the first quarter.”
King Philip’s 2-2-1 – dubbed an “opportunistic” zone by Coute — wasn’t the biggest reason for the Eagles’ 15 first half turnovers, but it was key in terms of keeping the pace where KP wanted it. The Eagles didn’t get any fast break points in the first half.
“It started with Sharon, we’ve been playing an opportunistic 2-2-1 is what I call it,” Coute said. “When the traps present themselves we take it but it’s more of a time management 2-2-1, trying to keep it a possession game rather than an up and down game. We want the pace to be at where we want. We’re not a team that will score 70 or 80 points so we want to keep the pace at our level against teams that want to run.”
“[The zone] has helped a lot too. Over the last couple of games we’ve shot a better percentage. Ben Smith has been a big lift for us hitting some outside shots, [Noah] Goodwin is playing better and [Pharoah] Davis is finishing better in transition. When that all happens, it gives everyone else more confidence. When we get into the 2-3 zone, we’re extending it too and it helps with Kyle Layman in the middle because he alters the game, he alters a lot of shots. He takes that high post spot so we don’t have to collapse.”
The Warriors won the third quarter 13-8 and by the fourth quarter, Coute was able to rest his starters. In the final quarter, Tom Sullivan (five rebounds) and RJ McCarthy each had four points while Matt Lehoullier, Will Weir and Smith each added points. JJ Tibbetts added a pair of assists and Ryan Ackles came away with a steal.
Goodwin finished with a game-high 17 points while Layman had 11 points, six rebounds and two blocks and Smith had nine points and four rebounds.
King Philip (3-6, 2-5) is back in action on Tuesday night, taking a trip to Canton for a 6:30 tip off.
“It will be nice to go to Canton and get a win. I know Canton is hungry, they have scouted us a couple times. We know they are hungry for their first league win, it’s at Canton so we know we’re going to get their best. And they’re well coached too.”

Defense and Timely Shots lead Warriors Over North

By Anthony Rinaldi, HockomockSports.com Contributor
WRENTHAM, Mass. – A good defensive effort and timely shots led the King Philip boys’ basketball team over North Attleboro, 53-47, for its second win of the season on Friday night.
The Warriors started off hot in the first quarter, going on an 8-3 run in the first minutes of the game. North responded wit five straight points of its own to tie the game at but KP then went to work on the offensive end again scoring six straight points to end the quarter.
In the second quarter, North Attleboro’s defense began to play better, holding KP to 11 points. But when North junior Brent Doherty converted a crucial three-point play to cut the deficit to five, KP came back with two timely threes, the first from junior Seth Sullivan and the second coming from senior Ben Smith.
“The last two games we’ve been able to shoot the ball at a higher percentage and hit timely shots, to put not as much pressure on our defense,” King Philip head coach Matt Coute said.
“We’ve continued to have a hard time finding a shot grove early,” North Attleboro head coach Sean Mulkerrins said. “I was really proud of the other side of the court, the defense, we did a good job getting into passing lanes and turning that into transition offense.”
The third quarter began back and forth between both teams. North then went on a 10-2 run to get the KP lead down to one at 30-29. After KP junior Noah Goodwin added a pair of free throw, the Warriors again hit a timely three to get their lead up to six. North Attleboro junior Kyle McCarthy then hit a three from the corner to get the KP lead down to three. KP then again hit two foul shots to bring a five-point lead into the final quarter.
King Philip again came up big with some timely shots down the stretch in the 4th quarter. Smith came up big from downtown again for the Warriors, hitting two straight threes to help extent the lead to 13 points midway through the 4th.
After a Doherty three for North Attleboro cut it to 10. Will Weir responded with a layup for KP. North Attleboro then hit back to back threes the first from Doherty and the second from McCarthy cutting the KP lead once again. It then came down the free-throws for KP and junior Pharaoh Davis came up in the clutch going 6/6 from the line to close the game.
“This was a really, really sweet victory for us,” Coute said. “To win two straight games against tournament quality opponents is exactly what we needed to keep these kids motivated right in the middle of the season.”
For King Philip, Weir and Goodwin each had 13, Smith followed closely with 12, and Davis ended with 10. For North Attleboro, Doherty had a game high 24 points.
Both teams now have home games against non-conference opponents. North Attleboro (3-4, 3-3) looks to bounce back as they take on Falmouth this Sunday at 3:00. King Philip (2-6, 2-5) looks to extend the win streak to three when they take on Barrington at 3:00 on Monday.
