Old Lyme Dominate the ‘Battle of the Bridge,’ Crush Saybrook 70-47

In a game hyped as a ‘Shoreline Showdown’ between arch-rivals Old Lyme and Old Saybrook, anticipation was running high in the packed Old Lyme gym that those present would witness a game of the season. Were the Saybrook Rams going to avenge their two-point loss in the first game of the season to the still unbeaten (in the Shoreline Conference) Old Lyme Wildcats?

Twas not to be …

Riding high on a seven-game winning streak, the Rams opened solidly taking the lead a few times in the first quarter and staying level with the ‘Cats in points.

Then came a disastrous third quarter for the Rams when they watched as the ‘Cats went on an apparently unstoppable 17-point run … and that was pretty much that.

Old Lyme junior Aedan Using ended the game with 21 points, Olin Fredericks netted 16, while Brady Sheffield contributed 13.
