Panthers Move to the Finals, Lake George Top’s Spa Catholic


Thursday was semifinal night for the Class C boys at the Cool Insuring Arena with  league schools in both halves of the doubleheader.  Hoosick Falls and Saratoga Catholic came in looking to post “W’s” and setup an all Wasaren final on Saturday.

But the Warriors of Lake George weren’t buying in, as the number one Class C team in the state rolled to an 82-46 decision over Spa Catholic in the opening game of the evening.

In the nightcap Hoosick Falls took control early and held off a determined Maple Hill squad down the stretch, posting a 68-59 victory to advance to the Class C title game.
