Girls Basketball Dominates Falmouth Academy In Season Opener

The Whaler girls basketball team took care of business against the Falmouth Academy Mariners Thursday night, winning their season opener on the road 60-10.

Senior captain Raegen Perry led the way with 12 points. Senior captain Maclaine Willett and forward Tamoy Marner each had 10 points. Caroline Correia had 8 points and Ciara Barnett had 7 points.

The Whalers took control of the game from the opening tip, leading 14-6 after one.

“I felt like we came out a little jittery,” head coach Rafael Osona said. “I felt like we needed that first quarter just to settle into the game and calm down. After that quarter was over we really started to play well.”

The Whalers didn’t just play well, they dominated the second quarter by outscoring the Mariners 16-0 to take a 30-6 lead into halftime.

The Whalers had an equally dominate second half, outscoring Falmouth Academy 30-4 to win the game 60-10.

“I felt like what I was encourage by most was that we scored in a lot of different ways,” Osona said. “There wasn’t one player in particular who stood out because everyone contributed in their own way.”

This years season opener couldn’t have been more different from last years 90-22 loss to the Nauset Warriors in the first game of the season. Osona said his team saw contributions from younger players such as freshman Joan Harris, who finished with nine points on the night. All nine of her points came in the second half on three-point shots.

The Whalers are scheduled to play Nauset on Tuesday, December 14, in an away matchup set to tip off at 3:30 p.m.
