Bedford wins

Bedford boys' surge does in Pinkerton


BEDFORD — The Bedford High boys’ basketball team used a 9-0 run to start the second half en route to a 55-43 victory over Pinkerton of Derry in a preliminary round game on Tuesday night.

The Bulldogs (12-7) won their 11th in a row and advanced to the quarterfinals, where they will play at Trinity Friday in Manchester.

Pinkerton ended its season 9-10.

For the Bulldogs, Taylor Grande scored nine of his 11 points in the fourth quarter. Sam Stanton had nine points and eight rebounds. Ryan Brown added eight points and Cam Meservey added seven.

Luke Rosinski led the Astros with 15 points. Jeremy Dietzel added nine and Matt Rizzo had seven.

“This wasn’t our day. Guys were fatigued going in,” said Astros coach Pete Rosinski, who said his son Luke was still feeling the lingering effects of mononucleosis.

“You’ve got to give it to Bedford,” said Rosinski. “It was a defensive game. We watched the film. We knew their strengths.”

“We got better defensively as a team in the second half of the season, no question,” said Bedford coach Mike Fitzpatrick. “That and our rebounding.”

The Bulldogs had a 36-21 advantage on the glass. “I thought our offensive rebounding picked us up when we weren’t scoring in the first half,” said Fitzpatrick.

It was a close game through the first half with both teams taking their time on each possession, slowing the game down and exchanging leads.

Bedford led by one, 23-22, at the half. The Bulldogs’ 9-0 run open a gap that Pinkerton never narrowed.

“They got us in that run. That one-minute burst did us in,” said Rosinski. “That was the turning point.”
