Barrington Middle School girls bounced from playoffs

Eagles lose to Curtis Corner, 49-32

Posted

The Barrington Middle School girls’ basketball team once again had trouble with Curtis Corner in the playoffs, as the South Kingstown Middle School squad ended the Lady Eagles’ dream season with a 49-32 victory Tuesday at Johnston High School. It was bitter pill to swallow for the Lady Eagles, who suffered their first loss of the season.

Down 18-8 at the half, Barrington had a difficult time with Curtis Corner’s man defense and their torrid shooting. It was just one of those days for the Lady Eagles.

“Curtis Corner was the better team today,” said Barrington head coach Mike Topazio. “They shot the lights out. We tried to battle back, but they were on fire from three-point range.”

Dani Ceseretti finished with a team-high 13 points, followed by Lindsey Lemay with 11, and Riley Graveline with 8.

Last Thursday, Barrington won their playoff opener against Gallagher Middle School of Smithfield, 48-16, as the Lady Eagles raced out to a 14-2 lead and never looked back.

Maddie Gill had four three-pointers and finished the game with 16 points. Dani Ceseretti added 15 points and was the floor leader, while Lindsey Lemay wound up with 13 points with some great inside play.

“Riley Graveline was the true star,” said Coach Topazio, “as she completely shut down their top scorer, frustrating her all game in a box and one.”

So, for the record, Barrington ends another great campaign with a 16-1 overall record, including an undefeated Southern Division championship season.

“I can’t say enough about this year’s team,” said the coach, who like his players, were obviously disappointed that they couldn’t get by Curtis Corner. “But, they were the better team, and our kids gave it everything they had. You can’t ask for more than that. I’m so proud of every single one of them."
