Career high for Hunter Gaudette

By John Seaver 

Two weeks is a long time to stew on a loss but that's exactly how long the Hartford boys basketball team had to wait to get back on the court after their last game, a loss to Windsor on January 3rd. Due to the weather and the schedule, the Hurricanes had a 14 day break but were able to come out strong with a 62-40 win against a Springfield team that was still looking for its first win of the year.  Hartford's Hunter Gaudette led all scorers with a career high 24 points and coach Steve Landon called out his senior for helping the team get off to the good start. "Hunter played a great first half, especially on defense and rebounding the ball."

Gaudette hit the first of his game high four 3-pointers to open the scoring on the first shot of the game and had 7 points in the opening quarter as Hartford got out to an early 13-7 lead.  Springfield (0-10) never really threatened as the Canes had leads of 32-17 at half and 46-28 at the end of 3.

Alex Valley added 11 points and had a good night on the boards.  "Joey B (Batchelder) controlled the tempo of the game when he was on the court.   We were able to work on some things we need for the future so all in all a good team effort" added coach Landon.
