The second matchup of the season between Tilton and Kimball Union produced an exciting well-played game.  KUA came out on top by 41-37.  For the Tilton School Rams it was easily their best game of the season.  Eric Zhou sliced and diced his way to 15 points while Jonasson Zhang posted and toasted for 10.  Every player showed improved fundamental skills as they played with 100% effort.  The Rams were in it from start to finish by playing frenetic man-to-man defense.  If a couple more free throws had gone in this would have been a victory.  In addition to the stellar play of Eric and Jonasson, kudos to Max Keef for being the "floor general".  Max controlled the tempo and set up numerous opportunities to score.  Hongyi Jiang also had a great game on the boards as he battled several long-limbed KUA hoopsters.

Tilton squared off against Andover today, in what proved to be an exciting back and forth game. Both teams failed to score in the first period, but there were chances for both sides.  Andover scored first with just over five minutes to play in the second period, however, Tilton was able to even the score with a short-handed goal in the waning seconds of the period. Most of the action took place in the third period; four more goals were scored than the first two periods combined. The Rams were able to tie the game and erase a 1-3 deficit in the period, but the guests score a goal late and added the insurance goal with the goalie pulled to win the game.  Tilton hopes to bounce back this Saturday at Vermont Academy in an important Lakes Region game.

Coming off a big win against Millbrook, the Rams sought to extend their win streak against an undefeated Canterbury team.  Both teams came out ready to compete in a very hard fought and physical game.  The first two periods were back and forth affairs with both teams getting scoring opportunities, but both goaltenders standing strong.  Neither team was really able to find a consistent rhythm in a penalty-filled affair and the game remained scoreless heading into the third period.  Canterbury broke the stalemate first at 13:40, but the Rams stayed strong and tied it up at 5:58, when senior Brynn Mendes, put in the rebound on a shot by junior Ashlyn Brown.  Unfortunately, Canterbury was able to take advantage of a Tilton penalty to find the back of the net on an outside shot.  Although the Rams put on the pressure and continued to pressure, they were unable to break through and fell by one goal. Sophomore goalie Delanie Corcoran ended the game with 19 saves.  Tilton will next compete at home on Wednesday for a 2 pm tilt against Holderness.
