Concord wins a close one


Senior Edward Johnson, #90, goes down low for some cheer from the crowd during Thursday’s unified basketball game against Merrimack Valley.
Concord dominated for more than half the game before Merrimack ran up the score. The Crimson Tide ultimately won, 40-38, and may advance to the finals pending the results of games between other schools.
Rounding out Crimson Tide team were fellow seniors Matthew Audet, Adam Bryant, Kathleen Carberry, Sean Daley, Ethan Dupre, Lauren Hatch, Alden Hussey, Brenden McEwen, Andrew Nadeau, Michael Pettinato, Jake Purtell, Maxwell Rand, Caitlyn Shea, Sincere Thomas and Justin Wilson; juniors Tanya Blasko, Christopher Caswell, Erica Conrad, Kaytlin Dionne and Garrison Kelly; sophomores Ryan Geilen, Samuel Habib and Matthew Martin; and freshman Oliver Laidlaw. The team is coached by Amanda Bacher.
