Boys Varsity Basketball Continues Impressive Winning Streak

The Connetquot boys varsity basketball team recently defeated the visiting Northport team by a score of 66-61 on Jan. 24 and continued their winning ways with a 60-48 win over conference rival Walt Whitman High School the following night. With these two wins, Connetquot improved their overall record for the season to 8-8.

During the game against Walt Whitman, Sophomore Seth Goumba led Connetquot with 23 points, five assists and six rebounds, while junior Taylor Stepenak contributed eight rebounds and six points. The game was touch-and-go until senior guard Nick Acerenza hit a critical three-point shot to give Connetquot the defining lead with three minutes left to play. The T-Birds led by only two points (29-27) at the half, but their defense and strong work on the boards earned the win.
