KILLER BEES 60, FIRST SETTLERS 44
Southold dug itself too deep of a first-quarter hole to climb out of as the First Settlers lost at home to Bridgehampton, 60-44, in a League VIII boys basketball game Monday night.

Freshman forward Joshua Lamison scored nine of his game-high 21 points during the period. Freshman guard Tylik Furman added 19 points and senior forward Jason Hopson contributed 17.
Southold closed the deficit to within nine points at 25-16 with 3:09 remaining in the first half, but could never get any closer.
Sophomore Alex Poliwoda came off the bench to lead the First Settlers with 12 points, adding a team-high six rebounds. Senior forward David O’Day added eight points.
Southold next plays at Ross on Wednesday at 6:15 p.m.
