Last-second basket lifts Avon girls to win over Rams; Falcon boys fall two points short

AVON, Feb. 10, 2021 – Freshman Adi Standish grabbed an offensive rebound and put it back up and into the basket with seven seconds left in regulation to help the Avon High girls basketball team beat Bristol Central, 51-49 on Wednesday in the season opening game for both schools.

Standish scored 16 points in her varsity debut for the Falcons, helping first-year head coach Drew Faucher earn his first varsity victory.

Sophomore Sophie Mango, one of the few girls on the Avon team returning with some varsity experience, scored a game-high 17 points. Fifteen of the 19 girls in the Avon program this year are either freshmen or sophomores.

Janessa Bartell had a team-high 15 points for the Rams, including two baskets in the final 2:17 that tied the game at 49-49 all.

Avon (1-0) returns to action on Friday when they travel to Farmington to face the Indians at 6:45 p.m. The game can be streamed live on the NFHS network. Find the game by looking up Farmington.
