The game was part of an unusual Boy’s Varsity/ Girl’s Varsity doubleheader and the proceeds from the event were donated to the American Cancer Society.The Blue Devils added two more to the win column following last week’s games, extending their record entering this week to 17-0. 
The week kicked off with a trip to Chelsea. The overpowering defense of the Blue Devils proved far too much for the Red Devils to handle in the early going.
A handful of fast breaks quickly pushed the game out of reach. Nathan Poulin was a force in the paint, which Chelsea did not seem to have an answer for. The final result was an 88-19 victory for Williamstown. Poulin finished with 33 points to lead the way, grabbing 9 rebounds as well.
Brandon Carrier dropped 10 points and also snagged 6 rebounds, assisted on 7 buckets, and swiped 4 steals. Seniors Ben Bristow and Brandon Covey contributed 10 and 8 points apiece, and classmate Cameron Flinn scored 6 points and rebounded 8 missed shots. 
On Wednesday evening the varsity girls and boys teamed up to take on cancer. Playing back to back against Cabot, both teams sported pink in an effort to raise awareness and raise money. The coaches vs. cancer games were a success all around.
 Not only did both teams come out victorious, but they combined to raise over $1,100 for the cause.
The boys won by a margin of 76-17. Brandon Covey eclipsed the 20- point mark as the leading scorer with his 21 total points, mostly coming as a result of his 8 steals.
Jared Dwinell was not far behind with 17 points coming off his 5 three pointers. Dwinell added 6 rebounds on top of his scoring efforts.
Ben Bristow scored 12 points and Jacob Tassie also got in on the scoring with 11 points. Cameron Flinn pulled down 8 rebounds in the contest. 
Williamstown is scheduled to take on Rivendell tonight (Thursday the 16th) at home, and then wrap up the regular season next Friday night at home against a top division 4 contender in Proctor.
