BEARS 58, FIRST SETTLERS 33
Despite the return of senior guard Winston Wilcenski, Southold could not overcome The Stony Brook School, dropping a 58-33 decision in a Suffolk County League VIII boys basketball game in Stony Brook on Friday night.
Wilcenski, who missed the last four games because of “an internal manner,” according to coach Jeff Ellis, scored 7 of his team-high 9 points for the First Settlers (4-10, 4-6) in the second quarter.
Southold got off to a rocky start and never recovered against the Bears (9-5, 9-4), who rolled to a 21-6 first-quarter lead.
Jerome Washington led the Bears with 16 points. Brandon Odom sank four three-point shots to finish with 12 points.
Southold will host Bridgehampton on Tuesday.
