Pinkerton was also missing Drew Green and Ryan Burke.
“We’re not the same team we were” said coach Rosinski. “Our goal is to get healthy and try to make the playoffs.”
Londonderry got out to a 15-4 lead after the first quarter and just built on it, leading by 15 at the half and 18 after three.
Corey scored 18 of his 23 points in the first half. “Mark Corey really stepped it up. In the first half, he was unstoppable,” said Stanton.
“I think we’re focused and finally playing for a purpose” said Stanton about his team. “We want to get to UNH (for the Division I semifinals) and make some big things happen.”
