Amistad Wolves – Grit their Teeth!

Well, the boys have stepped it up a notch in recent play. The defensive efforts have been strong, and I believe that they are seeing how much the Defensive side of the ball can create offensive opportunities in transition.
Monday’s 20 point win over formerly undefeated Goodwin Tech was a good step for the Amistad Program. Last season, Goodwin Tech bounced us out of the CIAC State tournament before going to the quarterfinals. Amistad was lead by a 30 point performance by Chris Gibbs, 22 from Darien Barfield, and 16 from his twin brother Demetrius. The team managed to combine for 19 steals throughout the game., and our guards are beginning to manage the game better and are showing more confidence in their decision making and leadership on the floor.
Wednesday, we were at home against Eli Whitney again, and prevailed 78-49. It was another good win. Chris Gibbs led all scorers again with 23, including a couple of thunderous dunks, and Darien Barield had 22 again. It was the first time that we were able to get all players on the team into a single game, and it was great to see everyone contribute.
Amistad stands at 11-4 thus far, with a trip to Stratford on Friday evening.
Game time: 7:00 PM!
