Stepping up a couple of divisions Thursday night, the Maynard boys basketball team, from Wachusett League D, put its unbeaten streak on the line at Nashoba, from Midland B. After seven straight wins, Maynard, despite a terrific, game-high 33-point performance by senior Ryan Fowler, fell to the taller Chieftains, now 5-1. "Maynard gave us all we could handle," Nashoba coach Danny Ortiz said. "Fowler is very tough, especially down low. He's got great moves." Nashoba made the right moves in the second half with superb outside shooting over the Tigers' packed-in zone defense. Senior guard Justin Pelletier led the Chieftains with 21 points on seven 3-pointers. His senior teammates senior Kevin Connelly added 17 and Nick Campana 14.
