The Foran Lions boys’ basketball team fell to Lyman Hall, 57-40, in the season opener for both teams in Wallingford on Monday.
“We were flat to start,” said Foran coach Tim Swaller. “We put ourselves in a hole. I thought we responded pretty nicely in that quarter, but we played too much from behind. We weren’t playing at an intense level that we need to be. I thought Lyman Hall for the majority of the game outworked us and out-hustled us. It’s frustrating because I know we have a group that’s a little bit tougher, has worked a little bit harder and our effort has been better. Tonight, we just couldn’t get things going.”
