The Peabody High boys are still hunting for a win, while the girls handily won their season opener, and the Crusaders over at Bishop Fenwick are off to a solid start.
It's been a tough start to the season so far for the Peabody High boys' basketball team.
The Tanners lost to non-league opponent Somerville Wednesday night at home, 60-49, and then suffered defeat against league rival Salem Friday night, 57-35. Next up for the boys is Beverly Tuesday (7 p.m.) on the Panthers home court.
The girls' team, however, had just the opposite game against Salem, shutting down the Witches, 54-37, in the season opener. Carolyn Scacchi was the high scorer for Peabody with 14 points. The Panthers travel to Peabody Tuesday (7 p.m.).
Bishop Fenwick girls' basketball was on the rebound Friday after losing to powerhouse league foe Archbishop Williams Tuesday, 43-27. The Crusaders, however, upended league foe Cardinal Spellman Friday, 44-25, to even things up at 1-1. The girls are scheduled to travel to Austin Prep Tuesday (7 p.m.).
And the Fenwick boys are also off to a good start, defeating Archbishop Wiliams, 60-41, Tuesday. They are scheduled to host St. John's Prep at home Tuesday (7 p.m.).
