Knights feel Lumb's absence in second-straight loss

(Continued)

“We got into foul trouble across the board, so we’re playing with different kids out there,” Breen said. “Not having Pam (Coufos), who had three fouls in the first half, is difficult for us.”

After falling behind by 19 points (45-28) with 5:28 left in the game, North Andover cranked up its defense, forcing turnovers on seven straight Masconomet possessions. Coufos and Collins, who finished with a game-high 17, spurred a rally that saw the Knights cut their deficit to seven with 96 seconds remaining.

“This was a game where nothing was really going our way,” Breen said. “Yet we found a way to battle to the end. But it was too little too late.”
