The Middlesex High boys varsity basketball team gritted out two Conference 42 wins last week to improve to 7-0 in league play and 10-4 overall.
MHS trailed 17-14 at the half but outscored the Royal Tigers 17-7 in the third quarter to take control of the game.
“We didn’t handle their big men very well,” said Coach Hatch. “We led all the way and the score was closer than it should have been.”
Middlesex led 26-19 at the half and 40-29 entering the fourth quarter. Chesterfield outscored the Chargers 25-16 in the fourth quarter to make the game close.
The Chargers’ scheduled home game against King and Queen on Tuesday, January 27, was postponed and will be played on Friday, February 13. The Chargers will travel to Mathews on Friday, January 30; and will host Charles City on Tuesday, February 3. JV games begin at 6 p.m. and varsity games follow at 7:30 p.m.
