CHS Sports Roundup

Red Devils await tourney seeding, foe The Chelsea High boys basketball team concluded its season Friday, dropping a 66-62 decision to Greater Lowell, for whom the victory clinched an outright title of the Large Division of the Commonwealth Athletic Conference. The contest at the CHS gym was highlighted by Senior Night festivities at which CHS seniors Oscar Sabillon, Jorge Ramos, Eric Martinez, Carlos Vega, Freddie Ortiz, and Abdala Bana were recognized for their contributions to the CHS boys program. As for the game, the Red Devils started slowly, falling behind 40-28 after the first half. “We came out flat-footed,” said CHS head coach Jay Seigal. “We didn’t play with our usual defensive intensity and we gave up too many baskets.” Chelsea played better after the intermission, eventually closing the gap to two points late in the game. Chelsea had opportunities to tie the contest, but key turnovers and missed shots foiled their effort. Victor Corrales paced the CHS scoring attack with 15 points and teammates Sabillon and Eric Flores hit for 14 each. Ortiz scored five points, Albie Alicea and Nelson Vega added four points each, Eric Fernandez chipped in three, and Carlos Vega contributed two. Seigal and his crew, who finished the year with a 10-10 record, now await the word of their seeding and first round opponent in the Division 2 North Sectional of the MIAA state basketball tournament.
