They’re baaaack!! Tiger boys return to contender mode

By Mike Whaley

There was a time when Farmington High School boys basketball was held in high regard across New Hampshire. Those teams guided by Hall of Fame coach Mike Lee earned a reputation for being tough, fast-paced and relentless. Games in their steamy old gymnasium were a popular destination for coaches, players and fans from all corners of the state.

But Lee retired in 1998 after 21 seasons with over 300 wins and two state championships (1984, 1988). Since his departure there have been eight coaches and a pretty meager postseason haul: one trip to the semis (2001) and four to the quarterfinals. Not a sniff of a state championship.

The Tigers may be turning the corner under its current coach, Adam Thurston, whose patience is paying off in his ninth year. He is finally seeing some returns for his efforts.

Farmington is 11-2 in Division IV – ranked fourth with Profile behind Littleton, Concord Christian and Woodsville. It is one of the program’s best starts since the Lee era. The Tigers have done what they’ve done despite missing key players at different junctures due to injury and suspensions. That has only served to give other players more experience and make the team deeper than most in D-IV. They are just now getting everybody back.

Farmington’s 9th-year head coach Adam Thurston.

Farmington plays a withering man-to-man defense and features both size (three players 6-foot-4 or taller) and sound guard play with outside shooting range. There is good scoring balance with six players averaging six points or better a game.

The million dollar question is can this team advance deep into the tournament?

Last year most of this squad was on the floor when Farmington won its first playoff game under Thurston, a convincing 51-31 victory at Groveton in the 8-9 game. Their season ended in the quarters at No. 1 and unbeaten Woodsville, 60-47. It was a five-point game with two minutes to go, before the Engineers were finally able to pull away. Woodsville went on to win its second straight D-IV state title.

“It’s been a labor of love is kind of how I look at it,” said Thurston, a 2007 Farmington HS grad and former player. “When I first took over the program I was 25 at the time and, quite frankly, wasn’t ready to take over a varsity program.”

Because he was the eighth coach in 17 years, his immediate goal was to build continuity. “I was coaching JV at the time,” Thurston said. “I went through the program, so that was something I saw over the years.”

He said he wasn’t concerned about wins and losses. “It was about taking a more consistent approach about things and getting my message across,” Thurston said. “It took a lot of years. Looking back, I thought it would take five to six years to get there, and that’s about what it took.”

There was always talent, but not the commitment. Over the years, Thurston had to deal with outside forces – losing kids to suspensions, grades, apathy. “It’s been a struggle,” he said. “Last year was the year we finally got over the hump.”

Most of that team returned. With several additions, it has turned the Tigers into a contender. 

Senior Jordan Berko.

“When we were freshmen, we had a lot of talent on the team,” said senior big man Jordan Berko, the Tigers’ tallest player at 6-foot-6. “We couldn’t mesh together as we do now. I feel like a lot of the guys on the team are really close friends outside of basketball. Everybody really knows each other. There were some guys my freshman year who weren’t as dedicated to the sport so they fooled around outside of school and got into trouble or skipped practice or just went through the motions at practice. But now everything is fast-paced. We are focused.”

Thurston saw it coming as early as 2019 when the short-handed Tigers lost at Pittsfield in the first round of the tournament, 61-49, but it was a two-point game with four minutes to go. In 2020, they made a playoff trip to Groveton, only to lose a tight battle in the final minutes. But it was the same old same old – Berko was injured and a suspended starter missed the game.

Senior Matt Savoy.

Last year’s respectable playoff showing has given the team confidence. “It was awesome to see that we could make it that far,” said senior guard Matt Savoy. “It gave us a dose of energy this year – wanting to get past that this year and going all the way; or at least trying.”

A big influence, in Thurston’s mind, is the commitment to play off season, particularly over the summer. “When I took over I was knocking on eighth-graders’ doors with waivers to get them to play summer league,” he said. “I didn’t have enough high school kids. Now I’m turning kids away because we don’t have enough summer league jerseys. So that’s the big difference right there. That’s been the last two to three years we’ve had consistent off-season numbers. We’ve had less kids coming and going; kids messing up from time to time.”

Even though there were early season troubles, Farmington was able to figure things out. Two rotation players missed some time in December and January, and valuable junior starter Shawn Murphy suffered an injury that caused him to miss three games. He’s currently working his way back into the lineup.

“It allowed for some younger guys to move up, some guys with lesser roles to get their shot at it,” Thurston said. “It’s paid dividends down the stretch.”

Farmington is deeper for it, able to realistically play as many as nine or 10 players. “We really haven’t shown what we truly can be yet,” Thurston said. “We’re still very much an unfinished product.”

Senior Brian Boisvert.

Berko and Savoy lead the way as senior co-captains, averaging 15.3 and 8.8 points per game, respectively. Junior point guard Aiden Place (10.0 ppg) and senior guard Brian Boisvert (11.2 ppg) are two pleasant surprises in the backcourt, while Murphy (6.1 ppg) at 6-0 is a key contributor and a potential No. 2 scorer when he is healthy. Senior Luke Cardinal and junior Dylan Zappala are the Tigers’ 6-4 guys off the bench, while junior Cody Brazee and sophomore Noah Elwell are two players who benefited – and delivered – from increased playing time when others were either injured or suspended.

What makes Farmington so difficult to defend is that their scoring comes at you from so many different directions. Berko is the leading scorer, but he is unselfish to a fault, willing to get the ball to an open man first. It’s not uncommon for the Tigers to have three or four scorers in double figures, and not always the same names.

Thurston knew coming into the season what he was getting from Berko, Savoy and Murphy. Berko provides great defense and a double-double, Savoy is that all-around Swiss Army Knife type guy, and Murphy, when healthy, is a player who can be a consistent double-figures scorer.

Junior Aiden Place.

The surprises have been Place, Bosivert and Brazee. Place has embraced the point guard position where he distributes the ball well, plays tough defense and is an above average 3-point shooter. He leads the team in steals and assists. “In my opinion he’s been our biggest surprise,” Thurston said.

When players were out, Boisvert added some much needed offense and Brazee has been a pleasant offensive revelation off the bench.

Thurston recently pulled each player aside individually to discuss their roles down the stretch with the team returning to full strength. “The first thing is that it’s made things in practice very competitive, which is great,” he said. “The starters versus the bench are playing each other within one or two possessions. That’s great. We have unreal depth. I feel comfortable on any given night going 10 deep. I don’t think other teams in the division can do that.”

The schedule beefs up in February, which is where the Tigers will find out what they are made of. Thurston figures they need to run the table to have a shot at a top-four spot, which will allow them home court until the tournament moves to a neutral site for the semis and final.

That took a hit on Tuesday with a 69-56 loss at Concord Christian, a game that was tied at 38-all late in the third quarter before CCA pulled away.

Actually two losses may keep them in the top four with some of the top northern teams beating each other up down the wire. Littleton (13-0), Woodsville (9-1), Profile and Groveton (9-3) play each other at least once before the season ends next week. Woodsville and Groveton meet twice. Last year as the No. 9 seed, Farmington had to make two three-hour trips in the same week to Groveton and Woodsville. That is something Thurston would like to avoid.

Junior Shawn Murphy.

“We didn’t take care of business early on in the year, which we were certainly capable of,” Thurston said of last year. “We didn’t win those 50/50 games that we needed to. In Division IV that matters a ton. That was a big lesson coming out of that; we need to start fast, which we’ve done this year, obviously.”

Looking ahead, the Tigers have big games with Portsmouth Christian (their first loss) on Saturday and Newmarket to end the regular season on Feb. 10.

The PCA loss was the one game where the normally relentless man-to-man defense went complacent at the wrong time. “We need to get that out of our system the rest of the way,” Thurston said. “Grooming those things on the defensive end is going to be huge for us.”

Now that Farmington is back in the contender conversation, the Tigers are feeling good about themselves and their potential.

“At the [Farmington] 500, [the youth program in town], they’re always talking about ‘oh, the high school team has a game. You should go and watch it with your parents,’” said Savoy.

“I like being in the conversation,” Berko said. “When we show up for games during warm-ups we look out in the crowd and it’s totally full – both sides of the gym. There’s people there to watch. With us playing well and getting more fans, I like that.”

Who wouldn’t?

Kingsmen down Tigers, remain perfect

In a pivotal Division IV match-up, the undefeated Concord Christian Kingsmen improved to 13-0 on the season with a 69-56 victory over Farmington (11-2) on Tuesday night.

The Kingsmen pumped in 24 fourth-quarter points to pull away late and earn the big win. Sophomore Brode Frink led all scorers with a game-high 28 points, while Ethan Young added 17 points for CCA. The Tigers were paced by 16 points from Jordan Berko, who was plagued with foul trouble for a large portion of the first half. Matt Savoy added 12 points for FHS.

Concord Christian led by eight at the half and six after three quarters of play, but the Tigers managed to cut the lead to three, 46-43, a few minutes into the fourth. The Kingsmen responded with a 13-1 run, that was capped by a Frink tomahawk jam and gave CCA a 15-point lead, 59-44. The deficit was too big for the Tigers to overcome.

Second-half surge lifts Farmington past PCA

Farmington trailed by seven at the half, 28-21, but the Tigers outscored host Portsmouth Christian Academy 26-13 in the second half to come away with a big 47-41 road win on Wednesday evening.

The Eagles came out firing, connecting on eight threes before the break. The second half was a different story, however, as PCA was held without a three-pointer and only made three field goals in the final 16 minutes.

Makayla Lapanne led the Tigers with 14 points, while Madi Ricker added 11 as FHS improves to 7-5 on the season. Maddie West poured in a game-high 17 points and Amanda Leland added 10 for the Eagles, who fall to 8-3.

Four unbeatens remain

By KJ Cardinal

We’re past the midway point of the 2022-23 season in all four divisions of NHIAA basketball and there are just four undefeated boys teams remaining around the state.

Let’s take a glimpse at this quartet of flawless teams…

Anthony Chinn directs the offense against Portsmouth back on Jan. 10.

PINKERTON BOYS (9-0)
It should come as no surprise that head coach Dave Chase’s Astros are sitting atop the Division I standings with a perfect 9-0 mark to start the season. Pinkerton made it to the state semifinals last year and with their big three of Jackson Marshall and the Chinn brothers (Anthony and Tyrone) clicking on all cylinders, the Astros are rolling through the division.

Pinkerton is holding teams to just over 44 points per game (PPG) and winning by an average of 20 PPG. The only single-digit victory that the Astros have earned was at Keene, 48-40, back on Jan. 13. Looking at Pinkerton’s remaining slate, it’s hard not to circle the Feb. 10 tilt at Bedford (8-1) as the biggest test that remains in the Astros quest for perfection.

Jalen Reese goes up for two against Somersworth on Dec. 13.

GILFORD BOYS (9-0)
The three-time defending champion Golden Eagles are a perfect 9-0 and sit perched atop the D-III standings. Another pair of brothers, Jalen and Isaiah Reese, are both averaging nearly 20 PPG to lead the way for Gilford.

While head coach Rick Acquilano’s squad has yet to lose, they have been tested in three tough battles of late and came out on top in each one. The Golden Eagles started the new year with a four-point win at St. Thomas on Jan. 3. A week later, Gilford staved off a hungry Belmont squad, 61-58. And, just yesterday the Golden Eagles survived an overtime scare at Conant, 52-48.

Kayden Hoskins and the Crusaders held on for a big win at Woodsville back on Dec. 21.

LITTLETON BOYS (12-0)
Trevor Howard’s Littleton Crusaders are a state-best 12-0 and are coming off perhaps the game of the year in D-IV on Friday night, a thrilling 86-81 victory at Profile. Littleton’s front-man Kayden Hoskins is pumping in over 21 PPG, but the Crusaders boast a line-up loaded with potential double-digit scorers and their balanced attack is very potent.

The Crusaders have proven they can win on the road as they earned hard-fought victories at Portsmouth Christian, at Woodsville, at Lin-Wood, at Colebrook, at D-III White Mountains and most recently at Profile. With five of their remaining six games at home, if Littleton can take care of business on its turf, the Crusaders may be sitting atop the D-IV heap when the dust settles.

Brode Frink with the unorthodox finish at PCA on Jan. 9.

CONCORD CHRISTIAN BOYS (9-0)
The Concord Christian Kingsmen are rolling through their D-IV slate. With big road wins at Derryfield, at Portsmouth Christian and at Holy Family, the Kingsmen look poised to make another deep run in the playoffs.

Sophomore sensation Brode Frink is the straw that stirs the drink for head coach Eric Heizer’s squad. Frink is averaging over 25 PPG and can score in anyway imaginable. The Kingsmen have some obstacles on their schedule as they host Derryfield (7-2), Farmington (10-1) and head to D-III Conant.

1K point scorers in the 603

We love to honor those local legends from the past and thanks to our local legend himself, Mike Whaley, we have started a list of all-time NHIAA 1,000-point scorers list.

Check out our progress below. If you don’t see your school listed, send us your 1,000-point scorer’s list (boys and girls), and we will be sure to add your school. Simply take a photo of the 1,000 point banner in your gym or send us a list. We’re hoping to get the total points scored (if known) and the year of graduation.

Farmington handles shorthanded Newmarket

The Farmington boys improved to an impressive 9-1 on the season with a 59-42 victory at Newmarket on Wednesday night.

The game was never really in question as the Mules were playing shorthanded with a slew of players out, most notably Baris Fortier and Jaron LaBranche.

The Tigers didn’t mess around though as they came out the gates firing, winning the first quarter 14-7, and took a 30-12 lead to the half. Brian Boisvert once again led Farmington with 15 points, while Cody Brazee (14) and Jordan Berko (12) chipped in with double-digits.

Parker Sweitzer picked up the slack for the Mules with 22 points to lead Newmarket who drops their third-straight and falls to 4-4 on the season. The good news for the Mules is Fortier, who’s been out since an injury in their third game of the season, looks to be on the mend and ready to return soon.
