Wheeler falls to Lyman


NORTH STONINGTON — With just seven varsity players seeing playing time and just four hit the scoring column, the Wheeler High boys’ basketball team ran out of energy in the fourth quarter and watched Lyman Memorial post a 77-62 victory Saturday in an ECC-Small game.

Lyman (2-4, 1-0 ECC-Small) led by just a point, 48-47, after three quarters and trailed 17-11 after one quarter and 38-29 at halftime. But the Bulldogs, who played 12 in the game, outscored the Lions 28-15 in the fourth quarter to drop Wheeler to 1-4, 0-1 ECC-Small).

“Our players’ chests were heaving in the fourth quarter,” Wheeler coach Neal Cobleigh said. “We were ahead for much of the game, but it’s tough playing five or six kids. I have to do a better job creating some depth to go against these teams that play 10 to 12 players. It’s tough to hang with them, although I can’t ask for a better effort.”

Mike Dellaporta led Wheeler with 17 points and four assists. Troy Stefanski added 16 points and 12 rebounds. Jacob Raggon added 16 points, connecting on 10 of 14 free throws, and contributed eight rebounds. Wheeler plays 7 p.m. Tuesday at Tourtellotte.
