Video Segment: Golden Spoon Closed Temporarily

The Golden Spoon in Hopkinton started as a coffee shop in 1981 before turning into a full restaurant 14 years ago. The Golden Spoon has become a Sunday morning tradition for many local residents but as owner Bill Morgan said the Golden Spoon isn't saying goodbye they're saying see you later. The restaurant will open again in about 6 months at a new location.

Owner Bill Morgan talked to HCAM News; "We considered ourselves fortunate to have a longtime staff, longtime regular customers, we loved getting to meet and know everybody, that's been the best part of the business. That's why we love the business, we look forward to seeing everybody again, like I said it's not a goodbye it's a see you later. The Golden Spoon is more than just a building, it's an experience. We have been here since the town has grown and we want to continue with going into the future, we like to see families come in and the kids grow... it's really been nice, it's really been a pleasure."

The Golden Spoon is expected to reopen in about 6 months at a new building in the works on Lumber street.

Video Segment: Hillers Boys Basketball takes Down Wayland in 1st Round

In-front of a packed house at Wayland High School, the Hillers took down the Warriors 53-48 in the Central Division 2 Quarter Finals. The 1st quarter was a good offensive battle. Warriors Sophomore Forward Joey Luchetti (17 points) knocked down three 3 point field goals in the 1st to help Wayland to a 17-13 lead heading into the 2nd quarter.

The Hillers defense completely shut down the Wayland offense in the 2nd quarter and took Luchetti out of the game. Luchetti went scoreless in the 2nd quarter. Fortunately for Wayland, the Hillers offense had some struggles of their own but outscored the Warriors 10-5. Hopkinton led 23-22 at half.

The 2nd half evolved around great defense and foul trouble for both teams. Wayland hit only 2 field goals in the 3rd quarter but the Hillers did not pull too far away only knocking down 3 field goals of their own. Hopkinton outscored Wayland in the 3rd 10-8 to head into the final 8 minutes on top 43-30. Wayland knocked down only 8 field goals in the entire 2nd half, the Hillers did not do much better but early foul trouble allowed Hopkinton to knock down 13 of 20 free throws in the 2nd half. The free throws gave the Hillers just enough for the 53-48 victory.

Junior Matt Locke led the way striking for 19 points and took over in a game that Wayland almost totally shut Hopkinton down from the low blocks. The 12 and 9 5th seeded Hopkinton Hillers will meet up with 1st seeded 18 and 3 Marlboro Panthers in the Semi-Finals. Marlboro beat Medfield in the 1st round 68-47. Wayland finishes 11 and 8 overall.
