Wednesday, the Waterford High School boys’ basketball team withstood a late rally by rival East Lyme to win its first game of the season.
East Lyme was down 15 in the fourth quarter, but came back to take a three-point lead, according to The Bulletin. However, Ryan Brower hit a 3-pointer with 17 seconds left to play to force overtime, where the Lancers won 64-60, according to The Bulletin.
