Greens Farms Academy Captures 2013 NEPSAC Class C Championship

The motto "Defense wins" was well represented in the NEPSAC Class C Championship Finals. This game featured two hard-nosed, man-to-man defensive teams who locked out each others' half court offensive schemes. Greens Farms Academy, hailing from the Fairchester Athletic Association of Connecticut and New York, and The Pingree School, coming from the Eastern Independent League of Greater Boston, had spent their regular seasons honing their toughness against a majority of NEPSAC A and B class opponents. The two tough defenses kept the game score low and leads small. At the end, GFA prevailed 55-50 to win their first ever New England Championship.

The game started well for Pingree. Transition baskets by Justin Assad and Johnny Spears had them up 4-0 in the first forty seconds. For the rest of the half, however, they would only get three baskets from their half court sets, three pointers from Reese Fulmer and Kyle Lentini and a put-back from Connor Reardon. The half-time score of 27-17 was dramatically below both teams' normal rate of scoring.
