Victory one for first-year coach Abrom Roberts's Big Blue girls basketball team came at home this week against Danvers.
The girls played solid team defense, helping each other in their 2-3 zone and holding the Falcons to 32 points.
Led by senior Ara Talkov, the Blue defeated the Falcons 42-32 on Tuesday.
Ara showed leadership, taking over the game offensively and by hitting the glass and grabbing rebounds, the coach said.
Power forward Rachel Moran also rebounded well and drilled a nice 3-pointer, Roberts said.
A week earlier, the Blue lost a close one in their opener, on the road, against Winthrop, 31-28.
Again they played solid team defense, the coach said.
Friday's scheduled freshmen, jv and varsity games at Gloucester were postponed because Gloucester High School had no power, said Linda O'Keefe, of the Swampscott High Athletic Department.
The make-up games will be Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013 at Swampscott High at 4 pm, 5:30 pm and 7 pm, she said.
The game scheduled with Gloucester the second time around, on Feb, 8, will now be on Thursday, Feb. 7, 2013 at Gloucester.
