Behind a stifling press defense that resulted in 26 steals, the Westport boys’ basketball team dominated Holbrook, 74-57, to capture a Mayflower Athletic Conference victory on Wednesday night.
Hunter Brodeur led the Wildcats (8-3) with 27 points and four 3-pointers, while Owen Boudria added 15 points.
“We’re small, and we work really, really hard,” said Westport coach Scot Boudria. “What I usually see at the end of a game, whether we win or lose, are eight or nine kids gasping for air because they’re working really, really hard.”
Even after getting into foul trouble early, the Wildcats maintained a lead throughout the game and held off Holbrook (10-2) in the second half.
