Pentucket holds Lynnfield to one first-half basket

WEST NEWBURY — On an opening night at which Pentucket unveiled a state championship banner, the current group of Sachems displayed the same suffocating defense which helped win that Division 2 title.

Holding visiting Lynnfield to one field goal in the opening half, Pentucket jumped to a 20-point lead before cruising to an easy 52-34 victory Friday night over the Pioneers. 
The Sachems forced 26 turnovers in the game’s first 24 minutes.

“Our defense was there,” said Pentucket coach John McNamara, who is after the program’s sixth straight CAL Kinney Division title. 
“I don’t think but one basket in the first half, so we played great defense. They love playing defense. In fact, I think we get frustrated when (the opponent) is scoring points at the end of the game when it’s meaningless. It bugs them, and that’s their attitude and why we love the kids we have.”

Returning senior starters led the way for the Sachems as Angelina Yacubacci scored a game-high 20 points and Angelica Hurley added 12.

Despite taking the big early lead, Pentucket struggled on offense at times, converting only nine of their 26 first-half shots.

“There were some nerves and butterflies, and I think it showed in our shooting. We kind of rushed everything tonight.”

The Sachems, who used 10 players the first nine minutes and all 15 on the roster in the game, opened their biggest lead with 3:10 left in the third when a Megan Reading lay-up made it 39-10. 
In the third quarter, the Sachems committed eight turnovers – the same amount they had in the first half. Nine players scored points in the rout.

“We played sloppy,” McNamara said. “Our offense was not very good overall, but our defense was there. We just shut them down for three quarters of the game, and then it got to be a little bit of garbage time at the end. So, we have a lot of work to do, but overall the effort was great.”
