HARTFORD - The Terryville boys basketball team got back in the win column with a 52-42 win over Achievement First on the road in Hartford.

Mike Tiscia came up clutch in the second half for the Kangaroos, scoring 14 of his game-high 20 points.

Terryville was down 19-11 in the first quarter and Shawn Iwanow got the Kangaroos off to a 14-1 advantage in the second quarter with eight points.

In the fourth quarter Terryville led but Achievement First was still in the game.

Tiscia and Zack Rinkavage hit back-to-back 3-pointers to extend the Terryville lead to double digits and eventually put the game away.

Rinkavage added 13 points.

With the win Terryville moved to 5-6 on the season and will travel to take on Lewis Mills Friday night at 7 p.m.

"We fell behind early and showed a lot of heart to come back and get the win in a tough gym," Kangaroos head coach Mark Fowler said. 

GIRLS BASKETBALL

East Hartford 48, Bristol Central 30: It was an inconsistent night for the Bristol Central girls basketball team.

The Rams played decent in the first and final quarter of play with 10 points in the first and 13 in the fourth.

However, the seven combined points in the second and third quarters and the consistent effort put forth by East Hartford was too much overcome for Bristol Central.

Ashley Watson had 13 points for the Rams and added eight rebounds, two steals and two assists.

Bristol Central fell to 0-14 on the season and will travel to play Hartford Public tonight at 6:45 p.m.

Northwestern 44, Terryville 22: Against league leading Northwestern the Kangaroos struggled to generate any offense.

McKenzie Huria continued her strong year for Terryville with nine points as the team leader.

Alana Girch and Amy Roqi were the other Kangaroos players to score.

Girch finished with eight points and Roqi had five points, including a 3-pointer.

Terryville fell to 0-12 on the season and will host Lewis Mills Friday night at 7 p.m.
