AYER - The Ayer-Shirley Dynamites 5th-6th grade girls Nashoba Valley Youth Basketball League team had an explosive season. The fireworks finale came Tuesday night with the Ayer-Shirley Dynamite's 21-4 win over the Ayer-Shirley Thunder at Ayer-Shirley Middle School.
With their win, the Dynamites took their division's championship trophy and racked-up an 11-0 undefeated season under co-coaches Dallas Nealy and Danny Sheriff.
Danny Sheriff said the Dynamites' defense "was just amazing...they put on a Kentucky Wildcat-style defense. Those girls scrapped."
