BOONSBORO - The good news is that the Boonsboro basketball accomplished what coach Curt Conway said it needed to against Middletown Saturday night.
The bad news is, it didn't help.
After being thrashed by the Knights in last week's Victor Cushwa Holiday Tournament, Conway wanted to keep Middletown sparkplugs Mike and Matt Main from having a big game. They did, but the Knights shot 58 percent from the floor en route to an 86-55 Monocacy Valley Athletic League win.
"I was looking forward (to facing Middletown) after they took it to us in the Christmas tournament," Conway said. "We wanted to stop the Main boys. We thought we knew what we had to do, but it didn't work."
