Ghosts Prey on Hawks


In an eerily quiet home gym, the Westford Academy boys basketball team downed the Waltham Hawks Tuesday night 70-40, where the crowd was less than half its normal size.

Yuvi Gahlaut sets up a play during Tuesday night’s WA game against Waltham.

Due to disciplinary action taken by WA officials, no students were allowed into the main gym for the game, essentially squelching any home court advantage. Because of some unpleasant behavior during a home game last week, students are temporarily banned from attending home games.

But the silence didn’t seem to bother the Ghosts, who played tough interior defense, filled the passing lanes and used active hands to keep Waltham stifled on offense. After an even first quarter that ended 15-15, stingy defense helped WA build a halftime lead of 31-23 which they never relinquished.

WA’s William Bramanti lets go a trey in Tuesday’s victory over Waltham.

“Everyone who played, scored,” said coach Chris Bramanti. Led by senior Griffin Eddy’s 22 points and 13 rebounds, the Ghosts had eleven players land on the stat sheet. Helping WA improve to 11-2 on the season.
