Wasaren Boys; Lilac Earns 300th, Raiders Nip Valley



Rick Lyons Staff Writer:  A big night in the Wasaren saw a coaching milestone, while Mechanicville and Stillwater kept winning streaks intact.

Hoosick Falls 70  Granville 55

Leading Scorers:  Panthers – Connor McCart 46   Remington Hickey 10    Horde – Matthew Fuller 24   Nick Sumner 10

Key Stat:  Early in the third the teams were tied at 34 all, when the Falls went on an 18-0 run taking control.  McCart’s 46 was just a couple points shy of a school record.

Take Away: Panther head coach Mike Lilac notched career victory 300, quite an impressive accomplishment.  Congratulations to Coach Lilac.


Mechanicville 42  Hoosic Valley 41

Leading Scorers:  Red Raiders – Giovanni D’Ambro 12   C.J.Tironi 11   Valley – Matt Espey 9   Jon Colligan 9

Key Stat:  The Raiders held a 35-28 advantage after three and withstood the Indians rally which included a 2-point jumper at the buzzer.

Take Away:  Mechanicville run’s it’s winning streak to seven and remains undefeated in league play at 6-0.


Tamarac 57  Cambridge 51

Leading Scorers: Bengals – Charles Lemay 16  Dillon Maxon 16  Anthony Zotto 16   Indians – Daniel Genevick 20   Kordell Benson 11

Key Stat:  Number 16 was good to the Bengals as three players reached that point total and that kind production keeps you in most games.


Stillwater 56  Greenwich 51

Leading Scorers: Warriors – Mitchell Wayand 14  Zach Travis 14  Jared D’Aloia 12   Witches – Collin Skiff 14  Bailey Winch 13  Carson Mosher 12

Key Stat:  Greenwich jumped out to 17-12 lead after one, but a 16-9 third period in favor of Stillwater turned the tide, on a night where the Witches bottomed 13 from behind the arc.

Take Away:  Stillwater stays perfect on the year while Greenwich continues to improve and will be a handful for opponents the rest of the way.
