The Warriors made an improbable comeback Wednesday night with a 72-67 double overtime victory against Weston.
Down 21 to the Weston Wildcats with less that three minutes to go in the third quarter, it would of come to no surprise if a young King Philip girls’ basketball team with nine freshmen and sophomores on the 14 person roster simply packed it in for the night. Yet, with seconds to go in the fourth quarter, the Warriors found themselves with a chance to push the game to overtime and eventually win 72-67 in a double overtime thriller at King Philip High School. Despite ending the first quarter down by only one, an open lane to the basket and foul trouble allowed Weston to build their lead at the free thrown line and under the hoop. Unable to work the ball down low on offense, the Warriors struggled to hang with the Wildcats as Weston took a 32…

Hornets knock down 28 of 39 from the line to defeat Warriors.
The first time Mansfield and King Philip girls' basketball teams met — back in December — the Hornets were able to limit the Warriors to a mere 27 points on the scoreboard. This time around, KP was able to knock down 55 points. Unfortunately, the final outcome was the same as Mansfield took home a 62-55 Hockomock league win in girls basketball. “We certainly had our hands full tonight. (Coach) Meg [Barry] has them playing very hard,” Mansfield Coach Mike Redding said. “They are so much more improved than they were when we played them the first time. “ King Philip knew, in order to derail the Hornets, they were going to have to come out with a hard-fought game full of intensity. The Warriors did just that, but were a bit too aggressive and…

Franklin’s Alicia Kutil was the game’s leading scorer with 15 points and nine rebounds. Kaitlin Copponi contributed nine points for the Panthers. Erin Fennessy was the Warrior’s leading scorer with nine points.
Going into the game, it was evident that the Franklin Panthers were poised to be a huge challenge for the Warriors. As an undefeated team, very few teams have been able to mount a challenge against the Panthers. “They have won numerous state championships in the past five years, and they got it. They got it together and they know what they’re doing,” King Philip head coach Megan Barry said. The Panthers blew by the Warriors 49-33. A slow start by the Panthers kept the Warriors in the game early on. Quick putbacks by the Panthers gave Franklin the points they needed to take a 12-6 lead over the Warriors after the first quarter. Erin Fennessy worked the low post during the first half for some quick points against the Panthers. Mixing it up a…

Defending state champions defeat Warriors 73-36.
The King Philip girls basketball team came into Friday night's game having to climb a rather large mountain in order to grab a victory over Oliver Ames. Unfortunately it took almost two and a half quarters for the home team to get into a rhythm on the court. Once they did, it was too late, and the defending state champion Tigers left town with a 73-36 win. OA was able to knock down ten points before the Warrior’s Katie Brennan hit one of her two free throws to get KP on the board. The home team would only score four more points the rest of the first quarter and would add another six as they went into the locker room trailing 39-11. The Tigers were able to account for a good number of their first half scoring via the fast break transition…

Looking back at the week of Jan. 16 - Jan. 21.
1. The Wrentham Board of Selectmen met on Tuesday night, and decided to renew the contract of Town Administrator William Ketcham for two more years. The renewal was based on the selectmen rating his performance as "exceeds expectations." 2. The selectmen also heard a presentation on options for the town website, which has been encountering problems lately. Town Clerk Carol Mollica told the board that the town needs a way to post meeting notices where they can be read 24 hours a day. 3. The town is also looking at establishing a charter, which would give it greater flexibility in local governance. Ketcham said there were two ways to do so: creating a charter commission or petitioning the state legislature. 4. The state of Massachusetts saw …
