BETHEL — A 15-8 scoring advantage in the third quarter turned a three-point halftime lead into a 31-21 advantage as the Lisbon High School boys basketball team ended a seven-game losing streak with a 48-30 Mountain Valley Conference over Telstar on Thursday.

The Greyhounds, who host Hall-Dale on Monday, improved to 3-11, while the Rebels dropped to 1-13.

Tucker Brannon paced Lisbon with 15 points, while Kendal Roy chipped in seven points, and Nick Collins and Brad Groh six each. The Greyhounds, who trailed 8-6 after a quarter and 16-13 at the half, were five of eight at the foul line.

Mike Delduca led Telstar with seven points and Cameron Pike had six. The Rebels finished three of seven at the charity stripe.


The host Class C Flyers handed the Phoenix their first loss at Portland.

Leading 13-12 after a quarter, Waynflete (12-1) outscored Hyde (10-1) 24-8 in the second for a 37-20 halftime lead. Another spurt in the third quarter for the Flyers extended the advantage to 57-33 after 24 minutes.

“We were unable to match the size and length of the Flyers,” said Hyde coach Peter Rowe, whose squad visits Valley tonight at 7 p.m. “We missed six free throws in the first quarter and several uncontested lay-ups.”

Ryan Cassidy paced the Phoenix with 21 points and Warsame Mohamed chipped in 14.

Waynflete received 18 points from Jack Cutler and 17 from Serge Nyirikamba. Max Belleau scored all eight of his points in the third quarter.
