Morse 37, Waterville 53

At Waterville Friday afternoon, visiting Morse fell behind 18-0 after a quarter in a KVAC Class B loss.

“The start was a crushing blow, and we just were not ready to play,” said Morse coach Mike Hart, whose team dropped to 2-4 and hosts Mt. View on Tuesday at 7 p.m. “I called a couple full timeouts, but the intensity was lacking, and Waterville was well-prepared and executed.”
