Amesbury runs out of steam

Indians hang tough in first half but fall to Watertown 47-32

“We kind of got tired — I guess you could say we ran out of steam and they turned the pressure on in the second half,” Martin continued. “No one expected us to be as close as we were with them, and so I think it was kind of a time for them to turn it up and they did.”

A fantastic season with plenty of improvement, all hope the Indians can build off their success from 2012-13.

“This season was definitely the best season for all of us,” Borkowski said. “We were able to communicate better and really get to the basket for easier offensive looks score wise. We played more like a team this year.”

“It was awesome I think it was 2006 was the last time Amesbury girls basketball made the state tournament and this year the six seniors wanted to leave it all out on the court because we knew it was our last chance and we did,” Martin said.

“I think there wasn’t one person that stood out. A lot of players stepped up. Emily Williams stepped up a lot really and was a key on offense with outside shots, and a few underclassmen really helped out as well,” the senior captain said.

“I hope (this run in the state tournament) built a lot of confidence,” Perry said of his program, which has languished in last place in the Cape Ann League for a number of season until this past year.

“I think it kind of surprised them, to be honest with you. None of the kids basketball-wise have played in the tournament before, so I think it was a good experience for them. The kids that are coming back next year hopefully they’re ready for the next step. We’ll see.”
