Six-foot-two sophomore Adam Buchanan was a force in the paint, scoring 15 points and collecting six boards on the night.
The lead was 10 after three quarters, but after that the Indians ran out of gas.
Lynnfield, who is still fighting for a state tournament berth, outscored Amesbury 23-14 in the game’s final eight minutes to put the game away and leave town with the win.
Halloran finished with 10 points and four rebounds, while Amesbury’s Ryan Foley had seven points and five rebounds.
Jack Fortin led the Indians in scoring with 17 points and two rebounds.
With no chance of a state tournament bid in their future this year, Amesbury is left working toward next season while sending its seniors off on a positive note.
“It’s very important for me to finish this season strong,” Halloran said.
“We fell short of the tournament this year, so we have nothing to lose. I’m telling the guys that we have three games left and have to come out strong.”
Amesbury’s youth was on display on the night as well, as Comeau utilized a great portion of his bench. Patrick Scanlon’s 3 points and 5 rebounds led the way, but several other Indians made the most of their playing time. Daniel Welch, Casey Surgent, Fred Halloran, Sam Burnham, Benjamin Vincent and Riley O’Connor also contributed toward the effort.
“We have a good core of young kids, so it’s very important for us to finish strong and set the tone for next season,” Comeau said.
