The Avengers are 9-0 

Both EG and Coventry came to play Thursday, and we had a good game to prove it.  With a record of 8-0 coming into this one, clearly the Avengers wanted to keep it going for their final league game of the regular season. Coventry was 4 and 4. They didn’t play like a .500 team.  

The quarter scores tell the story. That story was, who wanted it more? Just looking at the game without sound, you couldn’t tell the difference. Hard fought by both teams.

First quarter, 12 to 14 for Coventry. Second quarter, 28 to 21 for EG. Third quarter, 41 to 39 for EG, and the final was 58 to 48, for EG.  

See that third quarter score? It tells you there was a game going on. But after a time out and some wild hand gestures by Coach Gee (don’t forget, I had the sound down), EG came out playing full court defense. That put Coventry on their heels and the rest is now in the books.

Top-seeded EG has two non-league games this week – against North Kingstown and Providence Country Day (both D1 schools; EG is D2) – before playoffs begin.
