Pentucket, Masco face off for the second time

(Continued)

For Masconomet, it was ball-control that proved critical in the game’s most pivotal moments. Out-rebounding the Sachems 20-10 offensively allowed the Chieftains extra possessions and second chance opportunities. Both Masco’s Megan Letvinchuk and Stephanie Mini would have 13 rebounds in the contest.

While Masco was able to remain unbeaten, it is something that Romeo largely overlooks. In fact, while it is a feat that he would enjoy, it is one that he has grown weary of.

“I don’t think it’s important to finish undefeated,” he said. “I think it’s important to be playing really good basketball going into the tournament. Some people would tell you it’s a curse to go into the tournament undefeated. We just want to be playing good ball because if you’re playing good basketball, you will win.”
