Solid second half sends Pioneers to first victory

Dec 06, 2012

Maharishi School and Scattergood Friends met for the first time ever Wednesday with the Pioneer boys prevailing 44-27 in Fairfield.

The win marked the first of the season for Maharishi School and its first since January 13, 2012, when the Pioneers beat New London 43-33. Maharishi School never eclipsed 43 points last season.

The Pioneers trailed 14-13 at the midway point Wednesday but caught fire in the second half. Led by juniors Surya Sawhney and Suraj Pullapantula, the host team broke the game wide open scoring 16 points in the third quarter and 15 more in the fourth.

Sawhney twice went coast to coast finishing with driving layups in the third quarter, and Pullapantula took over the game in the paint to finish with a game-high 17 points. Pullapantula also made all six of his free throw attempts.

Sawhney finished with six points, four assists and two steals. Avery Mullenneaux, a junior, scored eight points and was the top rebounder with eight. Junior Rashan Anderson and Bimba Shrestha, a sophomore, grabbed four boards each.

The Pioneers (1-3) will once again be home Friday against Harmony.
