The Burr & Burton Academy boys' basketball team recently traveled to Westminster to take on Bellows Falls, easily overpowering the Terriers in a 61-21 romp at Holland Gym.
This one was all BBA from the get-go, as senior Chris Antonez hit a 3-pointer 20 seconds into the game and the Bulldogs never looked back, grabbing a quick 10-point lead by the end of the first quarter.
Bellows Falls worked hard, but could not get their offense going against a tough, 2-2-1 trapping defense that produced several turnovers and easy transition baskets for the Bulldogs.
In the second quarter BBA shifted gears and stretched the lead to 38-8 at the half with both the outside shooting of Joseph Keefe and Antonez, as well the inside play of Patrick Hancock, TJ Oliver and Joel Zoufaly.
In the third quarter the Bulldogs extended the lead to 35 as Bellows Falls coach Evan Chadwick did a lot of substituting, giving all his players time on the floor. Burr & Burton also did a lot of rotating of players throughout the second half.
In the fourth quarter, the Terriers kept working hard but only had three points to show for it in the final stanza, while BBA added another 14 to their total.
Keefe led all scorers with 13 points for the Bulldogs, while Antonez and Hancock pitched in with 11 points each. Three players had four points each for the Terriers.
