The phrase “complete team effort” gets thrown around often when describing a team’s method of victory. But Thursday night in Dover was the perfect example of this cliché, with 10 different Dover-Sherborn Raiders scoring, and three finishing the game in double figures as the DS boys cruised to a 67-37 victory against Millis.

From the start, it was all DS. The Raiders (3-1, 1-1) began the game on a 10-2 run, highlighted by a pair of three-pointers from senior captain and forward Brett Stark (game-high 14 points). Millis called a timeout and cut the deficit to 10-5, but the Raiders got back to business on offense in the form of a 9-0 run to conclude the quarter and take a 1two-point lead into the second.

The Raiders kept hammering away in the second quarter, as a 12-4 run that featured a three-pointer from junior guard Kirby Ryan (10 points), a pair of layups by Stark, and a pair of free throws by senior captain Cam Raycroft (eight points). When the dust settled, DS had built themselves a commanding 31-13 lead at halftime.

The halftime break failed to cool off DS in any meaningful way, as the Raiders began the third quarter as hot as they ended the second. A 9-3 run to extend their lead to 40-13. Senior forward Alex Waugh (12 points) banked home a pair of shots inside the key to bring the DS lead to 27 points at 48-21 with under three minutes to play in the quarter. Back-to-back layups by senior captain John Muckstadt (five points), including a three-point play, brought the lead to 53-26 for DS at the end of three.

Five straight points by senior forward Alex Baroody (seven points), along with a three-pointer by Waugh, extended DS' lead to 62-29 midway through the fourth. Kirby Ryan hit a pair of free throws, followed by a pair of layups by Ryan Eysie. DS kept its foot on the gas until the final buzzer and came away with the 30-point victory.

The DS boys will enjoy a brief holiday break before getting back after it against Millbury on December 27.
