NEWPORT, N.H. -- On Monday night, Allison Scott joined Julie Messenger as the only two females in school history to score 1,000 points on the court.
The Hinsdale guard, who entered the game needing just three points to reach the milestone, completed a three-point play nearly two minutes into her varsity basketball team’s 55-39 victory over Newport. A short celebration followed the made free throw.
"She’s a scorer. She can shoot and go to the basket," said Pacers coach Terry Bonnette. "I told her to relax, have fun and enjoy it because it would be over before she knew it."
The coach believes there were seven players on the school’s 1,000-point list, including six boys, prior to Scott’s name being added.
Bridget Bourne scored a team-high 18 points and Skylar Bonnette added 16 as the Pacers improved to 12-0 on the season. They are scheduled to face Mascenic on Wednesday.
Newport 87, Hinsdale 33
HINSDALE, N.H. -- Kyle Rideout (15 points) and Matt Boggio (6) led the way offensively for the 0-11 Pacers, who will face Mascenic on Wednesday.

Hawks strut their stuff
down the stretch
BRATTLEBORO -- The BHA Mites took on Franklin County and Nanotuck over the weekend. Sam Hall and Ivan Lyons split time in the net. Both goalies played spectacularly. While not in net, Lyons and Hall both notched multi-goal games, as did William Hill, who had a Mite natural hat trick (three goals in one shift) and added several more goals to boot. Single goals scorers were Nick Gerard, Rowan Lonergan, Evan Wright and Alexander Dick. The ferocious defensive play of Marina Wilson and Ali Ibrahim held scoring chances to a minimum.
On Sunday, the BHA Squirt Hawks hosted the mighty Holy Name Stars at Nelson Withington Arena. The Stars have been the dominant force in the Squirt South division this year, entering the game with a 13-1 record, beating teams by three goals or more per victory. The Hawks decided that they would not be gracious hosts to the Stars and the battle was on from the start.
The Beauty and the Beasts line was dangerous for the Hawks throughout the game and created two goals by Will Taggard, both off outstanding passing plays by Kami Meier and Jack Pattison. Darek Harvey was a brick wall in net for the Hawks as he helped keep the score at 2-2 entering the third period. Harvey was aided by the determined defense of Jenna Powers and Aden McMahon, who kept the Stars attackers at bay.
In the third, Gabe Heiden hit the power booster and dominated the ice for a full 45 seconds, first breaking up a quality chance by the Stars and finishing with Heiden lighting the lamp to put the Hawks up 3-2. After the Stars tied the game at 3-3 each team traded unsuccessful scoring chances. Harvey was tough in net and had help from a heads up back check by winger Elliot Davis. The 3-3 final is only the second blemish on the Stars record and gives tremendous confidence to the Hawks as they head down the stretch.
Peewee Blue won both GSL games this weekend. Saturday’s contest against Holyoke’s Lightning was a 6-4 victory. Jacob Curtiss netted two goals, one unassisted and one assisted, from Joe Koes. Koes netted two goals, also one unassisted and one assisted, from Aidan Kindopp.
Dimitri Seger got a goal with help from Calvin Stebbins, and Antony Palomba, who was out with an injury, found his way into the game sheet with a goal. Austin Wood was solid between the pipes holding off the Lightnings’ defensemen, who were peppering him from the point with rocket-like slap shots.
Sunday’s game at home would be a good all around team effort from the Blue Crew, with a final score of 6-1. Goaltender Wood, and the solid defense from Kindopp, Nathan Powers and Alex Hudon, would only let one goal through in the final three minutes of the game. Goals came from Curtiss, Seger, Andrew Peloso, and Mason Foard. Assists came from Powers, Stebbins, Foard, Curtiss, and Seger as well.
A pleased coach Jared Powers said, "The Blue Squad’s physical play really helped out this weekend. We need to keep showing these big bodied teams that we are not afraid to get in the corner and grind it out!"
