The three high school squads all had a tough time of it against Wareham in a home and home series.

Last Wednesday at the Sancy, Wareham outscored the Purple 21-8 in the third quarter to pull away for a 75-56 win.

Tuesday night in Wareham, the varsity played well but couldn’t stop the Vikings’ outside shooting in an 88-68 loss. Andrew McHugh did a fine job on defense, while Randall Jette was the high scorer for Martha’s Vineyard with 19 points.

The jayvees fell hard, 96-56, Tuesday after playing so well in a 76-70 loss at home last week.

The Martha’s Vineyard freshman did not play in Wareham, but lost at home last Wednesday 54-25.
