WESTPORT, Conn. – Hunter Eggers scored 29 points and went 1,000 for his career Wednesday, as the Greens Farms Academy boys basketball team routed Lexington Christian Academy, 87-55, in the first round of the New England Private School Athletic Conference Class C playoffs.
The victory sends the Dragons (22-2) to the semifinals on Friday in Westport. Greens Farms will meet the winner of Wednesday’s game between Hyde and Providence Country Day.
Eggers, a senior from Greenwich, needed just seven points to become the fifth player in school history to clear 1,000. He took care of that milestone in the first half, when Greens Farms built a 55-31 lead.
Sean Obi added 19 points and seven rebounds for the winners. Matt Tate had 16 points and nine assists, while Eggers also dished out six assists.
The winner of Friday’s game plays in the championship game on Sunday. Greens Farms, which won its first Fairchester Athletic Association title over the weekend, is seeking its first New England title. The Dragons have won 16 straight games since losing to King on Jan. 10.
