WAPPINGERS FALLS, N.Y. - It’s been a difficult start to the season for John Jay-East Fishkill, but a quick start on Wednesday against Highland propelled the Patriots to their second win of the season, as they won 63-30 Wednesday.
“It’s been a tough season, but we continue to fight,” senior Robert Golden said. “We’re finally starting to come together.”
The Patriots took advantage of a 12-0 first quarter lead, putting them up 14-3 early and never looked back.
“I told them in the locker room after the game how proud I was of them,” head coach Robert Seipp said. “We were 0-5 and 1-7 and a lot of teams would give up. These guys are working harder than we had been earlier in the season. They deserve a lot of credit for that… All 11 guys we played played awesome.”
Nine of the Patriots 11 players scored Wednesday.
Vinny Fusco led the Patriots with 12 points. Malaki Smith had 11 points and Hansen Bagdonas had nine.
“The message all season long has been to continue to try and work to get better, and I think that we’ve done that,” Seipp said.
Dominic Valente finished with 14 points for the Huskies.
John Jay will take on Beacon Thursday at 11 a.m.
