On Tuesday, December 21, 2010, the Durfee Boys' basketball team defeated Somerset 76-53 at Veterans Gymnasium. Durfee led by 29 going into the half, securing the victory.

Captain Cory Cardeiro, Anthony Espinola, and Reynaldo Perez had each scored double figures by the intermission. Perez and Garcia played super leading the pressure and leading the team with steals.

For the Hilltoppers, Espinola finished with a game high 17 points. Perez scored 16, Cardeiro had 10, and Therriault and Alex Rodrigues both scored eight points.

"There are going to be nights where the team can't hit a shot, but when we hustle and have effort and self pride it shows that we are going to be a tough team to beat," said Cardeiro.

With the win, Durfee improved their record to 1-2, while Somerset dropped to 2-2.
