JV Green Devils get 52-47 overtime win at Whiteoak

A successful 2015-16 season continued last week for Coach Rob Meade and his North Adams JV boys squad as they hit the road on Friday, Feb. 5 to do battle with the host Whiteoak Wildcats. It took a little extra time but the Green Devils came out with their 13th win of the season, getting past the Wildcats 52-47 in overtime.

The Devils got three first quarter baskets from Seth Daulton, but still found themselves behind 11-10 when the period ended. Neither side produced much offense in the second seven minutes, combining for 13 points and heading to the intermission in a 17-17 tie.

North Adams forged a lead in the third quarter, outscoring the Wildcats 18-10. In the quarter, the Devils got a three-pointer from point guard Jacob Call, two buckets from Tanner Utterback, and seven points from Colt Shumaker to take a 35-27 advantage into the final period.

The fourth quarter was the total opposite of the third and the score was turned totally opposite, with Whiteoak outscoring the Devils 18-10 to rally and force overtime deadlocked at 45 apiece. North Adams had numerous chances to put the game away in the fourth, but the Devils were only 1 for 6 from the free throw line.

The visitors remedied that situation in the overtime period, going 7 for 10 from the stripe, accounting for all of their points. The Wildcats were held to just a single field goal in the extra period as the Devils escaped with the 52-47 win.

“We faltered in the fourth quarter, especially from the foul line,” commented Coach Meade. “We jumped ahead by eight in the fourth but seemed to panic down the stretch and were forced into overtime. Fortunately, we overcame the poor fourth quarter at the line to go 7 for 10 in the overtime.”

In the win, the Devils placed two players in double figures, paced by 15 points from Seth Daulton, who continued his fine late-season play. Colt Shumaker has also stepped up his game lately as he added 13 points. Elijah Young scored 7 and Logan Rogers 6 for the victors.

After securing win number 13 on Friday night, the JV Devils came back to make it 14 on Saturday night with another road win at Western Latham, 42-26. The JV Devils now stand at 14-5 for the year and will face Portsmouth Notre Dame on Wednesday, Feb. 10 and then finish their regular season on Friday, Feb. 12, hosting Eastern Brown.
