Page 10 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, February 1, 2019 Crimson Tide boys’ basketball team looks to fight through the proverbial wall after two straight losses By Joe Mitchell T hey will look back at this two-game stretch, maybe sometime in March, and realize it was all a part of the growing process of a young team, but nonetheless the Everett Crimson Tide boys’ basketball team (9-3 overall, 7-2 in the Northeastern Conference) still suffered a couple of tough losses that they could have easily won. The Tide lost to Medford last Friday night, Jan. 25, on a buzzer-beater, 58-57. They then fell to host Swampscott Tuesday night, 61-58. “We hit a wall at this current moment,” coach Stanley Chamblain said. “We now just have to find a ANGELO’S "Over 40 Years of Excellence!" 1978-2019 Regular Unleaded $2.259 Mid Unleaded $2.699 Super $2.759 Diesel Fuel $2.899 KERO $4.759 Diesel $2.849 FULL SERVE HEATING OIL 24-Hour Burner Service Call for Current Price!

Omar Quilter was the leading scorer against the Mustangs with 17 points. Nate Mehu was next in line with 11. The Tide actually led at halftime by six, 27-21. But they just couldn’t pull away from their Medford counterparts in the second half. The local Everett quintet also led at the half versus the Big Blue, 26-23, but once again they hit that proverbial wall, and the more desperate team was able to persevere in the end. The Big Blue had been struggling and needed a win to remain in the postseason hunt. “The effort was there, and the kids kept on fighting, but we just couldn’t shoot the ball into the ocean in that game,” said Chamblain. Mehu was Everett’s lone double-digit scorer in this game with 17 points. There’s still good news coming out of this past week, and that’s the magic number to clinch a state tournament berth is only one. With that said, the Tide will welcome Beverly to town Friday night, Feb. 1, before travelling to Somerville to face the Highlanders on Tuesday night.
