Local rock band Wellfleet dazzled with their rendition of the National Anthem prior to the Farmington - St. Thomas boys night cap. Pat Curry (STA Class of 1997) and Craig Roy (FHS Class of 1999) donned their school colors in Bash style.
With the game tied at 55, Pittsfield’s Devin Bedell picked off a pass by Inter-Lakes and completed a three-point play with less than a second on the clock, giving the Panthers boys basketball team a come-from-behind victory over the Lakers.
