The 2010-11 boys basketball season started Saturday night for Rochester and Whitcomb with the annual Bean Pot Game. After two weeks of working hard, both teams were hyped to play for real.

Rochester scored first and moved out to a 6-1 lead before Brody McClure hit the first of two three-pointers in the quarter. Play was a little ragged, but Rochester was able to lead 14-7 at the end of the quarter.

Rochester picked up the intensity in the second. Between the pressure and foul trouble, Whitcomb had no answer for the Rockets. Rochester outscored the Hornets 22-2 and went into the half with a 36-9 advantage.

The second half started with both teams unable to find any flow. A Rochester time-out seemed to wake up the Rockets. They scored 25 unanswered points between the third and fourth quarters to put the game out of reach. The game ended with Rochester winning 82-26. “I thought Whitcomb did a great job on the offensive boards, but there seemed to be a lid on the basket,” said Coach Kingsbury. “Knowing Coach Adams, this will be a different team when we see them later in the season.”

Whitcomb was led by Brody McClure with 15 points. Clay Walker had 20 points, Pavin Parrish 19, and Mike Smith 12 to lead Rochester.

Rochester hosts West Rutland December 16 and Whitcomb hosts Cabot December 14 for their next games.
