FRAMINGHAM – The back of their warm up shirts read “ALL IN” as the Framingham Flyers girls varsity basketball team kicked off the winter sports season on home court against the Attleboro High Bombardiers.

The first quarter opened with both teams fighting to maintain control of the ball for a chance to score.

The Flyers had a good few attempted shots from behind the paint but were unsuccessful.

Framingham was first on the board running a 5-0 lead before Attleboro scored.

The Flyers quickly ran their score up 10-2 with just over 4 minutes to go in the quarter.

Framingham extended their lead to 20, leading by 14 points for the 20-6 score heading into the second quarter.

Second quarter opened with a 12-5 run favoring the Flyers and taking the 32-11 lead before Attleboro called for a much- needed timeout.

Framingham stretched their lead to 36-12 holding a 24 point gap over Attleboro heading into the half.

The second half opened with both teams trading off baskets. The Flyers continued to build their score leading by as many as 35 points with just over a minute to go in the third quarter.

Framingham managed to tack on another couple of baskets, and the game headed into the final quarter with the score now 55-18.

The final quarter opened with back-to-back 3-point shots from the Bombardiers, but this would be one of the only few shots Attleboro would make for the remainder of the game.

Both teams continued trading off baskets but it would not be enough for the Bombardiers to outscore the Flyers, ultimately falling 62-29.

Sisters Katie Regan and Ally Regan led the game scorers. Senior Katie Regan scored 20 points while her younger sister, sophomore Ally Regan scored 19 points accounting for 39 of the 62 points scored for Framingham.

With a great start to the season, Captain Selina Monestime said the team is at the tip of their potential continuing into the season.

“We just have so much more room to grow and start off even stronger than we did today. It’s just up from here,” she said.

Monestime said there is always room for improvement and one of the areas she said the team will work on is foul shooting.

Head Coach Kirsten Fucarile also commented on the team’s season opening victory. She said the girls have been playing together since the summer so their dynamic is as strong as ever.

“This is our first time we’ve had our first real official, structured game, but they’ve been together all summer long. As soon as the ball went in you could just see them relax and just play their game.”

Continuing into the season, coach Fucarile said she plans to make improvements by keeping the girls’ stamina consistent as it was today.

“These girls have the capacity to play really well for four quarters. Having that consistency that we just don’t back down is the goal,” said the head coach.
