Mass. Bay pulls away in second half, downs Northern Essex

HAVERHILL — The Northern Essex Community College men’s basketball team held nationally-ranked Mass. Bay to a 39-39 halftime deadlock last night, but couldn’t hold on, falling 91-74.

“They hurt us penetrating in the second half,” said Northern Essex coach Darren Stratton. “But we’re so young and we’re still learning.”

Mass. Bay (5-0) outrebounded the Knights 24-12 in the second half and controlled the game inside the paint.

Peterson Morency led NECC with 14 points, 4 assists and 3 steals and Javonte Forbes contributed 12 points and 13 rebounds. Haverhill’s Ryan Grant also had 12 points.

The Knights (3-2) are back in action at home tomorrow against Massasoit, starting at 7 p.m.
