ORLEANS — Sandwich has had Nauset High’s number on the ice this season.
There were just a few minutes remaining in regulation in the Nauset boys ice hockey game against Sandwich on Jan. 26. Warriors junior Dan Deering scored with 6:55 left to make it a 2-2 game that could have been headed for overtime.
But with four minutes left Sandwich put another shot in the net to hand Nauset its fourth loss of the season, 3-2.
It was a tough loss for the Warriors, who had dropped a previous game to Sandwich, 4-3. But the team still had a creditable 8-4 record as of Tuesday, with eight regular season games left.
On the same day, the Cape Cod Furies girls ice hockey team suffered its second loss of the season, 6-1, to Sandwich. The team’s first loss also came against Sandwich earlier in January.
The Nauset boys basketball team improved to 7-2 with a big 54-44 win over Falmouth on Jan. 28. Senior Keleb Daniels Julien scored a team-high 15 points in the win.
The team has strung together some impressive wins this year, including a 54-49 victory over Plymouth North two days before the Falmouth game, and back-to-back wins over Wareham.
Next up for Nauset is its first matchup of the season against Barnstable on Feb. 4. Two previously scheduled games against Barnstable were postponed. After traveling to Barnstable, the Warriors play a rematch against Cape Cod Academy on Feb. 7.
