Ryan nets 36 as Eagles defeat Patriots

Ryan also grabbed a team-high 14 rebounds, while Greg Manney and Brennan Pelkey added eight points each and Sam Trombly, five assists.

Zach Cosgrove tossed in 20 points for the Patriots and was followed by John Goodnough with 15 and Shane Douglas, 14.

AuSable Valley held a 53-48 lead entering the fourth quarter.

“We were down by five and then they scored the first basket of the fourth to put us down seven,” said Beekmantown coach Ryan Converse. “But we came right back to tie it and it went back-and-forth the rest of the way.

“We hit six-for-six from the foul line near the end and Ryan’s last two free throws tied the game at 62-all. They had the ball with 27 seconds left and we defensed them pretty well before getting a rebound.

“We got the ball to half court and took a timeout with 9.7 seconds remaining. Tyler Begor then had the ball on the wing and somehow got it into the post to Ryan, who had at least two defenders on him. He made the shot with three seconds left. They then threw a long pass and actually got a pretty good look at a two-pointer that rimmed out.”

The Eagles took a 22-14 lead in the first quarter and held a 40-32 advantage at the half. AuSable Valley, however, used a 21-8 run in the third to rally and grab a five-point edge going into the final stanza.

“We kind of controlled the tempo in the first half,” said Converse. “But we had some untimely turnovers in the third quarter and they took advantage.”

PLATTSBURGH — A 21-11 run in the third quarter was the big difference in the Hornets’ win over the Knights.

SARANAC LAKE 67, NORTHERN ADIRONDACK 53

ELLENBURG — Kevin Morgan and Daniel Burger put on a show Wednesday, but it was Morgan’s Red Storm that outlasted the Bobcats.

The Red Storm held a 34-28 lead at the half and pushed it to 13 at the end of three.

“Although it ended up being a 14-point game it was very close throughout,” Bilow said. “At one point in the fourth it was seven points. It was just a good game and I am very proud of the boys.”

Burger tossed in a game-high 29 points, 21 in the first half, while pulling down 12 rebounds. Colby Sayah added 11 points and eight rebounds, and Brady Smart chipped in with eight blocks and seven rebounds.

Chateaugay 47, St. Regis Falls 41

ST. REGIS FALLS — St. Regis Falls hasn’t had this kind of team in years.

The Saints entered Wednesday with an unbeaten record in Northern Athletic Conference play and a No. 4 ranking in the state among Class D schools.

That changed, however, when Chateaugay, avenging an earlier 50-47 loss on the Bulldogs’ home court, held on for a victory.

“It was a huge win for us,” said Chateaugay coach Mike Martin. “They came in undefeated in the league at 13-0 and we only have one loss in league play.

“You couldn’t find a place to stand in the gym — it was that packed. It was a great atmosphere for a high school basketball game.”

It was a game of runs.

Chateaugay bolted out to a 19-7 lead in the first quarter and led by as many as 19 points in the second half.

“We came out and took a 7-0 lead and then they came back to tie it,” said Martin. “Then we went back up, 19-7.

“It was 26-18 at the half and we went on a run to start the third quarter that put us up by 19. But they made a heck of a comeback and cut it to three at one time in the fourth quarter.”

Noah Bowes tossed in 19 points to lead the Bulldogs and Seth Young added 11. Devon Barnes, who was big early with six first-half points, finished with nine points, 10 rebounds and six blocked shots. Freshman point guard Jordan Martin ran the offense and did not turn the ball over once.

“Bowes had a big three-point play for us with three minutes left in the game after they had cut it to three,” said Martin. “He made some big baskets down the stretch to help us hold them off.”

Standout Caleb Green scored a game-high 21 points for St. Regis Falls and Brandon Votra was next with 12.
