WOODSTOCK — The visiting Windsor High girls basketball team wasted no time asserting itself at rival Woodstock on Tuesday night, racing out to a 16-3 lead on the way to a 50-30 win.

Peyton Richardson had six points in the opening run, eventually finishing with 11 points for Windsor. Sophia Rockwood had a team-best 12 points while pulling down five rebounds. Elliot Rupp filled the stat sheet with 10 points, seven rebounds, five assists and three blocks. Karen Kapuscinski had six points and nine boards. Holly Putnam and Audrey Rupp each chipped in six points as Windsor again showed off its impressive team depth.

Emma Tarleton and Lara Tarleton each had nine points for Woodstock. Mikayla Myers added six points.

Windsor opened up that 13-point lead after the first quarter only to see Woodstock battle back in the second to make the halftime score 23-15 in favor of the Jacks. The Windsor starters sparked an 11-5 run in the third quarter start to put this one to bed.

“Even though it was a 20-point loss, we should take a lot of positives from this game. We are improving every day,” Woodstock coach Dennis Wood said.

The win improved Windsor to 8-1 while Woodstock fell to 5-3. Both teams return to action on Thursday when the Yellowjackets host Leland & Gray and the Wasps visit Brattleboro.

Hanover 66, ConVal 27

PETERBOROUGH, N.H. — Melissa Whitmore drained three 3-pointers on her way to 16 points as Hanover remained unbeaten in NHIAA play.

Hanover opened on a 22-8 run and never looked back. Stella Galanes added 14 points and Amina Ajwang had 10 each. Hanover built a 41-19 lead at halftime.

Hanover (8-2 overall, 8-0 NHIAA) will host Hollis-Brookline on Thursday.

Boys Basketball Stevens 40, Mascenic 26

CLAREMONT — Dylan Chambers had 15 points, including an 8-for-10 performance from the free-throw line, to lead the Cardinals (5-2).

The Stevens defense was stifling for three quarters, helping the hosts build a 23-10 lead in a low-scoring affair. Things opened up a bit in the fourth, but the Cardinals built a big enough lead to thwart any would-be comeback.

Chambers had 10 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter, including a 3-pointer to make it 28-23 after Mascenic had made a run to get back into the game. Reeve Wilkinson added nine points, including a pair of clutch 3-pointers in the second half, and Kayden LaClair had seven for Stevens.

“Our defense has been a constant all season, and it allowed us to overcome a poor shooting night,” Stevens coach Ray Curren said.

“We also showed a lot of guts by overcoming a late rally.”

The Cardinals visit Campbell on Friday.

Kearsarge 80, Newport 20

NEWPORT — The Cougars were too much for the Tigers (0-5), building a 55-15 lead at halftime.

Aaron Fellows had seven points for Newport. Devyn Heino added six points. The Tigers visit Newfound on Friday.

Boys Hockey Exeter 4, Hanover 2

WEST LEBANON — The Blue Hawks (6-0-1) remained unbeaten after doubling up on Hanover (3-2-0) at Campion Rink.

Spencer Lawe and Jack Wilkinson each scored for Hanover. Jack Stadheim had a pair of assists, and Casey Graham had one assist.

“We played well in spurts, but lacked consistency,” Hanover coach Dick Dodds said. “Exeter is a dynamic team and you need to keep them off the power play, but we had a difficult time staying out of the box.”

Dodds also lamented a fifth straight slow start by Hanover as the hosts were again down in the first period. Hanover hosts Windham on Saturday at 3:10 p.m.

Wrestling Mascoma 45, Lebanon 24

LEBANON — With both teams shorthanded, the Royals spoiled the Raiders’ senior night with a solid victory.

Mascoma got pins from junior Alanna Cilbrith at 132 pounds, junior Garrett Giovagnoli at 145, freshman Ethan Lewis at 182 and sophomore Damien Nestle at 195.

For Lebanon, sophomore Sawyer Beaulieu won by pin at 120 pounds, as did sophomore Jonathan Eylander at 220. The match of the night came at 170 pounds, where Royals senior Tyler Mekus edged Raiders senior Simon Amaro.

Lebanon heads to the Manchester Memorial High School Invitational on Saturday, while Mascoma next hosts ConVal on Jan. 20.
