Girls Basketball

Two Rivers Magnet Middle School girls basketball traveled to Metropolitan Learning Center on Monday, February 11th, 2018.  The team had a series of losses and was looking to bounce back against a divisional rival.  The girls were ready to set the tone with an explosive start.  

In the first period, the Hurricanes attacked the Dragons with defensive pressure to help score some early baskets.  Savannah Morgan (7th) was aggressive in the post, which helped the Lady Hurricanes jump out to an early lead. Gabby Tinsley (7th) dominated under the basket jumping for offensive and defensive boards.  The second period, the Dragons slowed the game down, which took the Hurricanes out of their rhythm and limited their opportunities at the rim. The Dragons #2 was aggressive with the ball trying to create scoring opportunities, but the defensive of the Hurricanes continued to trap and impact her passing lanes. At the half, the Hurricanes were up 21 - 7. 

In the third period, Yenny Barry (7th) was explosive both offensively and defensively, scoring her season high. In the fourth, the Hurricanes defensive kept the Dragons from getting hot.  The Hurricanes came away with the victory with the final score of TRMMS 38 - MLC 10.  

The Lady Hurricanes are home on Thursday against ASI. 

Good luck ladies.  Go Hurricanes! 

 


The Two Rivers Magnet Middle school girls basketball team hosted St. James on Thursday, February 9th, 2019.

The game started with an explosive first half from the Hurricanes, with Julia McLean (8th) scoring several times at the rim; but, several fouls put St. James at the free throw line and kept St. James in the game.  Foul trouble and turnovers were the factor in the second period, which limited the Hurricanes offensive efforts.  At the half, the Lady Hurricanes were down 18 - 21.

 

During the second half, Gabby Tinsley (7th) played excellent defensive helping to close the lead that St. James gained.  Shaniqua Thomas (8th) made a fourth quarter offensive push, but it wasn’t enough to win the game.

 

The final score was St. James 40 – TRMMS 35. 

The Two Rivers Magnet Middle School girls basketball team traveled to Slade Middle School on Thursday, January 31st.  

The Hurricanes were slow to start, which impacted their ability to score at the rim.  Slade Middle School took advantage and jumped out to an early lead.  The defense of Slade Middle School forced the Hurricanes to make some unfortunate turnovers, limiting any offensive opportunities.  The Lady Hurricanes had a stronger second period, but it wasn't enough to take back the lead before the half. 

In the third period, Valerie Lopez (7th) played extremely well under the basket and was able to convert on the offensive end as well. The Hurricanes continued to push the ball and get stops, but the ball couldn't find its way into the basket.  

The final was Slade 23 - TRMMS 20. 

The girls are 2 - 1 on the season and play St. James at home next Thursday. 

Good luck next time. 

Go Hurricanes! 

On Tuesday, January 15th Two Rivers Magnet Middle School girls basketball team traveled to the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering.  The Hurricanes were hot off a win from their last game ready to continue their streak.  

From the start, the Hurricanes attacked the basket; they also played excellent defense, anticipating the passing lanes, to create several early turnovers.  Julia McLean (8th) was unstoppable.  Whenever she got the ball, she turned it into another basket for the Hurricanes.  The Lady Hurricanes were able to score eighteen points in the first quarter, jumping out to an early lead.  Trinity Greene (8th) played excellent defense keeping AAE's leading scorer from any opportunities at the rim.  Heading into the half, the Hurricanes had a significant lead over AAE. 

In the third period, Tisane Thomas (7th) led the charge with excellent offensive and defensive skills to help the Hurricanes keep the lead. During the fourth period, Savannah Morgan (7th) played in the high post, which allowed her to convert several baskets for the Hurricanes.  The collective efforts of all the ladies helped them come away with the win. 

The final score was TRMMS 49 - AAE 21.  

Congrats on the win ladies.  

Go Hurricanes!

Boys Soccer

October 9, against ASI

The Two Rivers Boys Soccer team took home a 6-1 win on the road against CREC rival ASI of New Britain on Tuesday afternoon. Despite more than a week off from action, including no practice time due to the recent rainy weather, the Hurricanes started off hot, quickly taking a 5-0 lead within the first 20 minutes of the game. They never skipped a beat and dominated from beginning to end. Michael Shoemaker lead the way for the Hurricanes with 2 goals.  Deshaun Boyne, Ali Elkahim, Ju-Sean Thomas, and Kenniel Bell all had a goal apiece in the victory. Damian Mach had 18 saves, including a beautiful diving save against a penalty kick. The Hurricanes look to continue to roll on Thursday, when the AAE Jets come to town.


The 2 rivers hurricanes went into this game with a lot of uncertainties and doubts, due to external variables, but as the game went on, that all changed. Each player supported one another and continued to believe that we could win the game and it made the difference.

The hurricanes never led the game but consistently battled to keep it close. Going into the second half of the game, we decided to step up the challenge of being down 6-4 and made a last push to end the game on our terms. Our defense came together to play as a unit and our offense rewarded their hard work by outscoring MLC 4-2 in the half to end the game in an 8-8 tie.

Coaches highlighted “win, lose or tie” we are in this together and that is exactly the identity they bought into for the night!
