Weekly Game Recap 1.9.2023


The St. Sebastian's basketball team improved to 10-0 on the season with victories over ISL rival Roxbury Latin (80-50) and Class A opponent Dexter-Southfield (100-57).  AJ Dybantsa '26 led the way at RL scoring 18 of his game-high 24 points in the first half.  Against Dexter-Southfield, Trevor Mullin '23 poured in 23 points and Jaylen Harrell '25 scored 27 on an efficient 11-15 shooting from the field.  The Arrows will return to action Saturday when the team hosts Groton at 2:45 pm and then will travel Sunday to the Hoop Hall Prep Showcase in Springfield to take on Berkshire at 2:30 pm.



The varsity hockey team went 1-1 last week dropping a 5-2 contest to Nobles while beating Belmont Hill 4-3.  After a scoreless first period, Nobles took a 2-1 lead in the second with Nolan Flynn scoring the first Arrows goal.  Nobles scored two goals early in the third and Ben Merrill scored his 4th of the season before an empty net goal kept the game out of reach.  On Saturday, in front of an outstanding crowd, Teddy Mutryn scored a shorthanded goal in the first period to open up the scoring.  Belmont Hill responded before the end of the period to tie the game and then proceeded to score twice in the second to take a commanding lead.  However, two power play goals by Teddy Mutryn and Isaac Mitchell and a strong goal by Nolan Flynn resulted in a 4-3 comeback win. 



The Arrows Squash team hosted Middlesex on Saturday 1/7.  The top 12 players competed in the match, and the team secured 9 individual wins for a convincing overall victory over the Zebras.  The Arrows played very well, using tactical precision to win many points. Five of the nine individual match victories were 3-0 sweeps by Gianluca Centola '24, Dhaniel Ramos '23, James Ko '24, César Hernández '26, and Liam Cunjak '25.  St. Sebastian’s is looking forward to hosting Tabor this Saturday, 1/14 at noon.



Over the weekend, the wrestling team took on two tough ISL opponents: Nobles and St. Mark's. Last year, Nobles placed 2nd in the league and are still a formidable team. The match started with a huge upset by Arrow, Eamon McCarthy. Eamon was losing his match against Hall from Nobles, 7-0, when he escaped and threw Hall to his back and pinned him with 5 seconds remaining. That set the tone for the arrows who would go on to win more matches, highlighted by 8th grader Jack Usechek, getting revenge against an opponent that he lost to earlier and captain Eddie Ryan, controlling his match until ultimately pinning his opponent in the 2nd period.  The final score against Nobles was 51-19. 

Later the same day, Arrows took on St. Mark's with a 60-24 win. James Joyce earned his first two victories of the day, both commanding pins against Nobles and St. Marks. Also, Quincy Pickett has continued to show his dominance on the mat, remaining undefeated on the season. 



After a mild winter so far, the Ski Team is getting ready for practice and races this January and February.
