WEARE, N.H. — A basketball team’s best type of health food is a win. With that in mind, the Hanover boys got a little healthier on Thursday night.

Hanover broke open a close game in the third quarter, using a 20-1 period to record a 58-36 win over John Stark. Hanover — which had dropped its last two games and four of the five it had played to date — held just a one-point lead at halftime before using its third-quarter burst to run away.

Seniors Max Galbraith and Evan Young had 12 points each and senior Collin Pierce had nine. Hanover led, 11-6, after one quarter, but John Stark (0-7) closed the gap to 27-26 at halftime. Hanover hit foor of it six three-pointers in that explosive third quarter.

Hanover (2-4) travels to Coe-Brown Northwood on Saturday.
