“We came into the game excited about the matchup as we knew Mathews very well,” said Middlesex coach Aaron Dodge. “This excitement carried onto the floor and we started off the game with a lot of energy and opened up a quick 31-8 lead.

“I was very proud of the way our guys played. It was the first regional victory that any of them have had in their high school career and it was exciting,” said Coach Dodge.
