Lions fall despite 28 from Raggon

NORTH STONINGTON — A big night from Jake Raggon was not enough to overcome a slow start and the Wheeler High boys’ basketball team fell to Plainfield 73-54 in an out of division game between ECC schools Thursday.

Raggon scored 28 points and grabbed six rebounds for the Lions (1-7).

“Jake is playing like he did last year, driving to the hole hitting mid-range jumpers and 3s. He can score from anywhere,” Wheeler coach Neal Cobleigh said.

Raggon’s career-high is 34, which he scored in a game against Grasso Tech last season.

Wheeler fell behind after the first quarter 16-7. Cobleigh attributed the rough beginning to a lot of easy shots missed in the game’s opening minutes.

The Lions pulled within seven points at halftime (32-25) and kept the Plainfield lead in single digits until the ECC-Medium Panthers (4-4) pulled away with a late third quarter run.

Mike Dellaporta scored 13 points and Troy Stefanski grabbed nine rebounds for Wheeler.

Ryan Pambuku led Plainfield with 21 points.

Next up for Wheeler is a Tuesday contest at ECC-Large Fitch at 5:30 p.m.
