BOYS BASKETBALL

Hamilton-Wenham 70, Triton 62: Freshman guard Marcus Zegarowski, in just his third game of the season, had 19 points while senior captain Henry Eagar added 18 points as the Generals (12-2) broke the game open with 28 third quarter points.

Kyle Lentini finished with a dozen points and 10 rebounds in the win while fellow senior captain Connor Reardon of Salem had eight points and played spectacular defense; his blocked shot on the game’s opening possession helped Pingree race out to an eventual 8-0 lead.

For Concord Academy, Marblehead’s Malin Segal finished with a team-high 22 points.

Lynn Classical 64, Beverly 59: Lack of energy and the ability to get transition baskets hurt the Panthers (8-7) in a road setback. Jimmy Cross had 24 points and 12 points to lead the Orange-and-Black while Jonangel Franco finished with 11 points with five steals. Chris Sinclair and Jon Berchoff each had seven points for Beverly, which hosts Classical tomorrow at home (3 p.m.).
