School Apologizes After Winning Basketball Playoff Game By 93-7 Score

EAST BRIDGEWATER (CBS) – The East Bridgewater High School girls basketball team won its playoff opener by a score of 93-7. No, there was not a typo in the box score.

The Vikings beat the Madison Park girls in the first round of the Division 3 South Sectional tournament on Wednesday.

"The final score is going to be 93, East Bridgewater, Madison Park 7, believe it or not," the announcer calling the game for East Bridgewater Community Access Media said on the broadcast as the final seconds ticked off the clock.

The Enterprise reported that following the game, East Bridgewater Superintendent of Schools Elizabeth Legault apologized for the margin of victory.

"This is not a reflection of our student body or our athletic program," Legault told the newspaper about what she called "an unfortunate situation."

East Bridgewater led 48-4 at halftime, then outscored Madison Park 45-3 in the second half.

Legault told the Enterprise she hopes the game will bring "a thoughtful reflection from our program leaders."
