March Madness came to the Bedford High School gym on Friday night with two opening round Division 2 MIAA basketball tournament games.

The good news during the night was a 53-41 win by the 14th-seeded varsity Buccaneer boys over 19th-ranked Grafton. Bedford came into the tourney with a 16-3 regular season record while Grafton was 14-6. The Bucs needed to come from behind in the fourth quarter to topple their guests.

Next up for the Bedford boys in the tournament schedule – a trip to Springfield to face third-seed Pope Francis. The day and time is TBA.

Bucs Girls dropped by Leominster

The 16th– ranked varsity girls’ hoop team, which dashed through the regular season schedule with a 17-3 record, fell to Leominster, 43-38.

The Bucs played solid defense, but made only 12 shots from the floor. Trailing by five points after three quarters, they were never able to come within four points of Leominster.
