School Sports Roundup: Lynnfield boys basketball comes up short in CAL Tournament semifinal
The Lynnfield boys basketball team battled until the final seconds on Thursday night, but in the end the Pioneers came up just short in a 59-57 loss to Cape Ann League rival North Reading in the semifinal round of the CAL Tournament.
“It was just a great high school basketball game,” said Lynnfield coach John Bakopolus. “We played super hard, North Reading played super hard and it just came down to the wire. We fell behind early and then battled all the way back to take a lead in the fourth, and it ended up coming down to the last few possessions.”
