In the consolation game of the recent Green Mountain Union High School Holiday Tournament in Chester, the Chieftains hung tough, but fell to Websterville, 44-41, at Nason Gym.
Despite having to deal with 6-foot-7 center in the paint, Green Mountain did a pretty good job in the first half of mixing it up inside and getting a few offensive rebounds and put-back baskets.
Ian Currie had a hot hand early with a couple 3-pointers and put-back inside, while Ian Furrer also muscled up inside for a couple baskets, which was all good enough for a 14-11 Chief lead after one quarter.
However, the presence of Websterville's height was also felt as the big center had three blocks, six points and hand full of rebounds in the first quarter alone.
In the second quarter the Chiefs continued to play pretty well, as junior Jason Albert hit a couple outside shots including a 3-pointer, guard Justin Veysey drove the lane a couple times for buckets and Furrer continued to hustle under the basket, as the Chiefs took a 30-23 lead into halftime.
However, the second half would be a different story as Websterville's size took control of the rebounding and the Chieftains went cold offensively, allowing the come back and ultimately, a tough loss for Green Mountain.
