A 21-point performance from senior guard Cam Meservey helped the Bedford High School boys’ basketball team fend off Pinkerton Academy of Derry, 50-48, Friday night and stretch its winning streak to eight games.
“Fitzy (Bedford coach Mike Fitzpatrick) is a great coach and they’re executing very well,” Pinkerton coach Pete Rosinski said. “I was very surprised when they were 1-7.”
Rosinski, who missed four games with mononucleosis earlier this season, finished with a game-high 28 points.
“Our guys didn’t quit,” Fitzpatrick said. “Cam Meservey played his usual solid game, and compliments to Luke Rosinski. He has developed into one of the best players in the state.”
Pinkerton led 26-12 with 3;01 remaining in the second quarter, but Bedford closed the half on a 16-1 run and led 28-27 at the break. Meservey scored nine points during the run. Pinkerton led 42-38 early in the fourth, but Bedford used a 10-1 run to open up a 48-43 lead.
“They’re being very deliberate on offense,” Pete Rosinski said. “We made some mistakes down the stretch. We got a little stagnant offensively. We have to move the ball better.
