Greyhounds can’t quite catch Cats

1
NAUGATUCK — The Greyhounds have struggled this season trying to run and gun with the best of the Naugatuck Valley League. They changed their tactic Friday and came out against Seymour with a defensive presence that knocked the Cats off their game. But while working to keep Seymour in check, the Hounds lost a little bit of their own offensive oomph and came up on the short end of a 54-42 final. “Our goal wasn’t to go out there and slow down the pace of the game,” Naugatuck head coach Kevin Wesche said. “We did want to limit them to one look at the basket and pick it up on the other end. For whatever reason, that didn’t happen the way we had planned it. Seymour did a good job of working the ball around, and they were very patient. We really had no answer for Kyle Moran, especially in the final period.”

Naugy unable to preserve halftime lead

1
NAUGATUCK — The Naugatuck boys won the battle on the boards against St. Paul Friday, holding a 9-8 advantage on buckets in the paint. But it was the hot outside shooting of the Falcons that did in the Greyhounds, as St. Paul escaped the borough with a 55-47 win. Naugatuck, 1-11 on the season, had no answer for the Falcons’ perimeter ace, Chris Borea (19 points), who sent five three-pointers through the net. The Greyhounds certainly gave St. Paul a run for their money with Warren Buerkle (14 points) back in the lineup. For one of the first times this season, the Garnet and Grey held the halftime lead, guarding a 25-23 advantage. It was the inside play of Tyler Krupa (11 points), Tyler Conklin (10 points, three blocks) and Kyle Krupa (six points, 10 rebounds) that gave the Hounds a presence under the basket.
