Tonight #5 Danvers faced off with the Gloucester Fishermen. Danvers, a Massachusetts powerhouse was coming off of a win against Somerville on Saturday, and was ready to clean up their game.
Before the game even tipped off Danvers jumped out to an advantage. They took a 2-0 lead on a technical foul called in warmups. From there it was all Danvers. The Falcons jumped out to an early 9-0 start and their game was almost flawless.
Senior Devan Harris got into early foul trouble for the Falcons and forced them to create a new game plan.
Danvers did not skip a beat at all though. Vinny Clifford scored 27 first half points for them to give them a 42-20 lead going into the half. He finished with 29 points and 8 rebounds on the night.
Sophomore Devonn Allen also played a great game. The Falcons' guard finished with 12 points, 8 assists, and 6 steals. He was all over the court and played with a special bounce in his step tonight.
Even though they lost their best player in Harris early on, Danvers still found a way to dominate the game. With their win tonight they move to 4-0 on the season and look like they are ready to dominate the Northeastern Conference. Danvers is now #5 in the state and is certainly one of the best all around teams in the state of Massachusetts. They play Rockland next on Friday, January 2nd.
