Local roundup: Lourdes nabs boys basketball win


The Our Lady of Lourdes High School boys basketball team took an early lead and held off host Pawling down the stretch for a 68-61 victory on Friday.

Mike Donnelly scored 22 for the Warriors, which tied Pawling’s Justin Mayette for the game-high.

Lourdes jumped to a 22-15 first-quarter advantage, and led 39-31 at the half.

“We started very sluggish,” Pawling coach Jason Kuhlmann said. “It was a bad first quarter, and we picked up the intensity a bit. I was very happy with the effort, if not the result.”

Jack Kolosky chipped in 12 for Lourdes, while teammates Justin Rhynders and Nick Fasone each scored 10. For Pawling, Cameron Thomas scored 16.
