CANTON, Mass. – After putting up 80-plus points in each of its two games last week, it felt like only a matter of time before Canton was able to get into a groove on the offensive end. In the third quarter, the Bulldogs finally kicked into gear, scoring 23 points (four more than they had in the entire first half) and closing the third on an 11-2 run.

Canton turned a three-point lead into a 17-point advantage heading to the fourth quarter, riding the hot hand of senior Kiara Cerruti (game-high 21 points) and junior Samya DaSilva (16 points) to hand King Philip its first league loss of the season, 56-39.

“We’re not always going to score that many points but we want to be in a situation where we’re comfortable doing that, we want the tempo to be at that pace, but we have to understand how to win when we’re not [scoring like that],” said Canton coach Jim Choquette. “I think the second half was a good example of that.”

KP coach Jeff Miszkiewicz was pleased with his team’s overall defense despite the loss. He said, “We knew coming in they were a high-octane offense, so we did our best to slow them down but you’re never going to slow a team like that down completely, you just have to make it tough. They hit a lot of tough shots.”

The first quarter was tight and dominated by defense. It was tough for either team to get good looks and both teams were guilty of turning the ball over against the heavy ball pressure. Fay Gallery (10 points and five steals) and DaSilva each hit threes to give Canton an early edge, but Emily Sawyer (16 points and 10 rebounds) got KP back into it with a pair of baskets.

Julia Marsden made a three, her only basket, to put the Warriors up for the first time and Jackie Bonner closed the quarter with a drive plus the contact to send KP into the first break up 10-8.

Canton answered with a 7-2 run to start the second. Cerruti had all seven of the points and all three of her baskets were assisted by Sydney Gallery (four points, seven assists, seven rebounds, two blocks). Cerruti’s three put the Bulldogs up 15-12.

Liv Lafond (four points and 12 rebounds) answered for KP with a drive and a pair at the line from Bonner put them in front but DaSilva responded with the final four points of the half. She drove down the lane for a bucket and then banked in a tough runner over Sawyer to send Canton into the locker room up 19-16.

After Bonner opened the second half with a three to tie it, Cerruti’s steal and assist on a Fay Gallery basket put Canton in front for good. DaSilva was a major factor in the Bulldogs being able to break the game open. She buried a corner three and three times was able to finish in the lane, scoring nine points in the quarter and taking some of the pressure off Canton’s three leading scorers.

“Samya is a player that has all of the gifts you want,” said Choquette. “There are so many games where she works her butt off to help everyone else and we said, tonight, this could be her night. She played one of her best games for us and that also helps everyone, it gives them a lift. Tonight we needed it and she came through.”

Sawyer had six in the third and her basket off a Lafond inbounds pass cut the lead to eight, but the Bulldogs closed on an 11-2 run to put the game out of reach. Cerruti (six rebounds and four steals) led the Bulldogs with 10 in the third, taking the ball to the basket and going 7-of-8 from the line in the quarter. She then knocked down a step-back three and Marissa Staffiere drove down the lane for two and a 42-25 lead.

“We kept saying that we can win this with defense,” Choquette said. “The more we defend, the more stuff will come up. We talked at halftime, we talked about making adjustments. We’re not going to stop shooting as much, but let’s work on other stuff. Let’s get to the free throw line. And playing fast, I think it tired them out.”

KP tried to rally in the fourth. Sawyer had four quick points and Maddie Paschke’s and-one had the lead down to 12. After a timeout, Canton was able to force a turnover (one of 34 for KP in the game) and get a layup for Sydney Gallery, who then added a runner in the lane. Fay Gallery then scored plus a foul and turned a steal and pass from her sister into another layup, extending the lead back to 20 in the closing minute.

“You can’t win with 34 turnovers, so that’s something we need to fix,” said Miszkiewicz. “We actually broke the press but then it was after we broke the press that we turned it over so we need to work on what to do after breaking the press.”

Canton (5-3) will put its four-game win streak on the line against Stoughton on Wednesday. King Philip (5-2) face another tough test on Friday with a visit from Attleboro.
