Lynn Classical girls basketball leans on defense in win over Lynn English
LYNN — The Lynn Classical girls basketball team brought the defensive intensity all game long Thursday, and despite a late run by rival Lynn English, the Rams were able to hang on for a 43-34 victory in a Greater Boston League bout at Paul F. Cavanagh Field House.
"We came out with a press defense to start, and I think that really shook things up a bit," said Classical coach Tom Sawyer. "But shortly after that, we decided to go back to our bread and butter, which is man-to-man defense. We were able to rely on that the rest of the way and hang on to get the win."
