EASTHAM — Drew Locke secured his first victory as head coach of Nauset Regional High School boys hockey when the team beat Barnstable 4-3 at the Charles Moore Arena on Feb. 3.
It was senior night for the Warriors, as upperclassmen Clayton Hussey, Collin Underhill, and Ethan Keeney were honored before the game. Hussey got off to a good start, scoring a goal to tie the game 1-1 late in the second period, then teammate Dan Deering scored shortly after to give the Warriors a 2-1 lead.
Nauset was up 3-2 in the third period when Hussey scored his second goal of the game to make it 4-2. The Warriors let one more goal get past them but held on for the win over a good Barnstable team.
The boys hockey team followed this performance with another win over a joint Mashpee-Monomoy team on Feb. 6. The final score was 4-1. The Warriors were led by freshman Julian Krivos, who scored two goals. The team is now 2-4-1 on the season.
Meanwhile, the Furies girls hockey team had five games in a row postponed from Jan. 27 to Feb. 6 due to weather conditions and Covid-19 protocols.
Boys basketball stands at 4-3 after an impressive 58-42 win over Dennis-Yarmouth, a four-point loss to Falmouth, and a 50-41 loss on Monday to undefeated Sandwich. Girls basketball continues to roll with a 7-0 record, led by senior Avery Burns, who is putting up big numbers.
Burns is averaging 25.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4 steals, and 3 assists per game. The team’s last scheduled game against Falmouth on Feb. 3 was postponed.
