Raiders to play for Division 3 North title
WHS beats Bedford, 68-50; Stoneham next on Saturday
After starting off slow, the Raiders bounced back, rallying around tough defense in the second quarter. Offensively, Mike Hagopian and Brendan Hoban found their strokes, hitting a combined five 3-pointers. Cesar Fulcar, after picking up three early fouls, came back in the second half, recording eight assists.
TJ Hairston came up big for the Raiders, grabbing 16 rebounds and finishing a barrage of layups. Christian Tapia and Kevin DiPietrantonio contributed on the defensive end and finished fast-break opportunities.
The Raiders, now 17-5, will play Stoneham on Saturday at Tsongas Arena for the Division 3 North title. Having beaten Stoneham twice, 61-32 and 72-40, the team is in good position to move on to TD Garden and play for the Eastern Mass. title next week.
