The consolation game at the Bancroft boys basketball tournament featured RVAL rivals Dublin and Eagle Hill, playing an early-season, non-league contest. The game was physical, as expected, and the Wildcats led early, winning the rebounding battle and going into halftime with a three-point cushion. But costly second-half turnovers turned the tables, and Eagle Hill squeaked out a 55-47 win. Hunter Bachman '16 led the way for Dublin with a game-high 24 points and 15 rebounds. Jordan Ferreras '16 added 9 and 6, respectively.
With the loss, Dublin falls to 0-4 on the season. The team goes for its first win in its home opener on Wednesday afternoon, 12/16, when it plays host to Charlemont. Game time is at 4:15.
