The season for the Canton High boys basketball team ended Monday night with a 50-45 loss to Waterbury Career Academy in the Class S state tournament quarterfinals inside a packed gymnasium at Canton High School.

Canton trailed by as many as 10 points, falling behind 31-21 in the opening minute of the third quarter. The Warriors pulled to within three to start the fourth quarter and trimmed it to two, 41-39, with 3:47 remaining but never pulled even.

WCA sophomore Marquan Watson scored a game-high 19 points and Jaden Battle had 16 for the No. 23 seeded Spartans (13-10 overall), who are in their second year as a varsity program. Junior Ryan Enns had a team-high 16 for Canton. The Warriors, the No. 2 seed, finished 20-5 overall.

The Canton High girls play Thomaston in the Class S final this weekend at Mohegan Sun Arena. The date and start time of the game will be announced Wednesday.

Stories on both the girls and boys teams at Canton will be in the March 23 edition of the Valley Press.
