This rivalry night game was all but over after just a few minutes.
Wamogo scored the first eight points of the game and was never challenged the rest of the way in a methodical 65-41 win over Litchfield on Friday. The contest was nothing like the overtime affair won by Wamogo in January.
“The home-court advantage, the atmosphere and the band all played into our favor,” Wamogo coach Gregg Hunt said. “Our kids were very focused on what they wanted to do.”
That would be to smother Litchfield defensively and rely on a balanced scoring attack. Wamogo lad 16-4 after one quarter and 30-12 at halftime. It was 44-19 after three quarters before the Cowboys made things respectable with 22 points in the fourth quarter.
“We got schooled and outworked by a team that played hard and disciplined,” Litchfield coach Dan Goscinski said. “They wanted it more than we did.”
Ethan Collins led Wamogo (13-4) with 14 points and Charlie Coffey and Ben Roy each had 12. Evan Fischthal had 15 points for the 6-10 Cowboys.
With the win, Wamogo clinched at least a tie for the Berkshire League regular-season title.
