Jack Watson drives to the basket to score a layup during Falmouth’s win against rival Barnstable last Friday night.

With every game gaining more and more importance as they push for a spot in the MIAA state tournament, the Falmouth High School boys’ basketball team cannot afford to take anyone for granted, and they nearly learned that lesson the hard way on Tuesday night, January 24, at the Antonucci Field House in Falmouth. Playing against their rivals from Sandwich, who are in the midst of a rebuild filled with growing pains, the Clippers had to plug away for every single point they could muster in a game when neither team allowed any easy buckets.

Both teams played stifling defense all night long, but in the end the Clippers were able to make enough plays in the second half to ward off the Knights in a low-scoring affair, 37-25.
