ORLEANS – The energy on the home team bench was palpable on Feb. 8. Not only was it Senior Night for the Cape Cod Furies, but the Nauset/Monomoy/Cape Tech squad had come to win. Three periods and five goals later, they'd given their seniors something to celebrate. “I was excited. Once we put one in, we got rolling,” Furies head coach Addie Weeks said of the 5-0 game. “We haven't been been able to produce in th...

HARWICH – A late game rally made the Monomoy girls varsity basketball team's Feb. 10 game exciting, but foul trouble and free throw issues allowed Nantucket to eke out a 39-32 victory in Cape and Islands Lighthouse League play. It was clear from the start that both teams were clambering for a win, with Monomoy looking to avenge a Jan. 2 loss to the Whalers on Nantucket, also by seven points. Unfortunately, in ...

HARWICH – Monomoy's loss was Cape Cod Academy's gain and Cape Tech's downfall in girls basketball action as the Seahawks' Mac Balfore scored 13 of her game-high 22 points in a commanding fourth quarter on Monday in CCA's 46-26 victory against the Crusaders. It was a fairly competitive game until that final quarter in the Crusaders' Feb. 3 outing, but as CCA's Balfore, who once attended Monomoy High and played ...

HARWICH – The Monomoy girls varsity basketball team might have fallen to Sandwich with a lopsided score of 57-35, but head coach Pete Richer told the team he thought it was their best game all season. “I told the girls after the first quarter that was the best quarter of the year, and I told them after the game it really was our best game of the year regardless of the score and considering the competition,” Ri...
HARWICH – Quiet leadership and dedication to sport have worked well for Monomoy's Connor Deveau during his high school lacrosse career, so well in fact that Deveau recently celebrated his official signing to play for Regis College next fall. It was none other than a confident Deveau that secured the attention of Regis College Men's Lacrosse head coach Matthew Sweeney by sending an email with his own lacrosse h...
ORLEANS – Between interrupted breakaways and pucks that simply refused to slide into the net, the annual Codfish Cup between the Monomoy/Nauset/Cape Tech Furies and the D-Y Dolphins just didn't go the Furies' way. No doubt given the level of intensity the home team Furies brought to the ice at the Charles Moore Arena, the 2-0 loss carried a bit more of a sting, as did several questionable calls by on-ice offic...

It was the first time the Sharks entered into competition with the Navigators and it took a little time for the home team to really get rolling, but once they did there was no l...
HYANNIS – The lucky number was seven in the Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs boys ice hockey game against Wareham/Carver on Monday, but it wasn't the Monarchs who were lucky. Instead, the home team fell 7-2 to the Vikings in an outing that left head coach Chris Peterson shaking his head. “It was just a really tough game,” said Monarchs head coach Chris Peterson. “We didn't show up. We've been having a hard time gettin...
