Powerful first half pushes Pioneers past Panthers
  SPENCER — The Southbridge
girls’ basketball team took a com-
manding 25-9 lead into the halftime
break against David Prouty and
then held on late in the Jan. 31 con-
test, escaping with a 46-33 win.
  Tanaisha Espino led the Pioneers
with 15 points and 9 rebounds,
while twin sister Tanishia added 13
points. Elyse Pena and Ariana
Rivas did the bulk of their damage
for Southbridge on the boards, as
each player grabbed 10 rebounds.
Hayley Chesson scored a team-high
14 points for the Panthers, while
Erin Gaudette (8 points, 16
rebounds) and Sam Dacey (7 points)
also chipped in.
  Tanaisha Espino caught fire in
the first half — netting 10 of her
points in the first two quarters — to
help give her team a 16-point lead at
halftime.
  But Chesson heated up in the sec-
ond half, scoring 9 points after
intermission, and Prouty got with-
in 10 points a few times in the
fourth quarter. The Pioneers pulled
away late, though, to improve to 8-7
on the season. The Panthers are
still in search of their first victory
of the season.

                      Plan for
                     SUCCESS
                      in 2012!
                   A well-established advertising
                   plan can mean the difference
                    between RED and BLACK
                        for your business.

                          We sometimes hear “I don’t need
                       to advertise locally, they know I’m
                       here!” That couldn’t be further
                       from the truth.
                          We all know Coke™ & Pepsi™
                       products are out there, but they
                       continue to advertise... why?
                       Branding!
                          Unless you’ve branded yourself as
                       the supplier or service provider for
                       your type of business, when your
                       service or product is needed, you
                       may be overlooked.
                          Ever hear of the expression, “out
                       of sight, out of mind?” If you open a
                       new business, would you hang your
                                                                Prouty students place well at Brain Bee
