Lighting up the scoreboard has been a problem at times this season for the Waupaca Comet boys’ basketball team.
That trend continued in the team’s last two games, a 43-33 loss Saturday, Jan. 22, at Green Bay Notre Dame and a 54-30 defeat two days earlier at home to Little Chute.
Notre Dame 43,
The Tritons never trailed in the game, as they led 12-3 after one quarter, 20-14 at halftime and 32-25 after three quarters.
Each team had one player in double figures. Adam Kaminske led Waupaca with 10 points, while Zach Passamoni hit five three-pointers to finish with a game-high 15.
“We have to find somebody that can give us some points,” coach Ron Weber said. “It wasn’t there again tonight. I wish somebody would score and take the pressure off of Adam.
“We scored 30 Thursday and 33 tonight,” he said. “That’s not going to cut the mustard.”
Little Chute 54,
The Mustangs took control of the game with a 17-6 advantage in the second quarter to take a 30-15 halftime lead.
Little Chute also outscored Waupaca 10-8 in the third quarter and 14-7 in the fourth.
Kaminske provided more than half of the Comets’ offense, as he led all scorers with 16 points.
The Mustangs also outrebounded the Comets 27-12.
“We had some good moments and it’s hard to look at the game and say we had some good moments,” Weber said. “We started out down 13-9 and last time, they blew us out early.”
The Comets hosted Winneconne Tuesday, Jan. 25, and will play at Appleton Xavier Friday, Jan. 28, before hosting Fox Valley Lutheran Thursday, Feb. 3. Tipoff for both games is set for 7:15 p.m.
“The big thing now is get better and make your teammates better,” Weber said. “There are a bunch of games down the stretch that we could pull out.”
