Chazy upends Elizabethtown-Lewis in boys' basketball

CHAZY — The Chazy boys’ basketball team just couldn’t miss from beyond the perimeter.

Alec Lapierre had a game-high 16 points, while Hayden Guay and Brandon Laurin each chipped in for 15 points, respectively.

“We played with a lot of heart tonight,” Chazy coach Cory Thompson said. “I thought we rebounded better in the second half. Elizabethtown-Lewis controlled the offensive boards, which got (Guay) and Justin Brothers in foul trouble.”

Charlie Huttig, who entered the game as the Lions (12-3) leading scorer at 16 points per game, finished the contest with 14 markers.

“Part of our game plan was to keep him in check,” Thompson said. “He got his points, but didn’t allow Elizabethtown-Lewis to create additional scoring chances. This was a good win heading down the stretch.”

“The first half was back-and-forth,” Thompson said. “We opened the game on a 9-0 run, but they were able to battle back. Neither team really had an edge, so it was nice to see us come out firing on all cylinders in the third.”

Zac Noka-Bailey added 13 points for the Lions in the loss.

SCHROON LAKE 58, WESTPORT 36

WESTPORT — The Eagles hung with the undefeated Wildcats for the first half, but the Schroon Lake’s experience kicked in during the second half for the victory.

“It was 20-17 at the half and we played with them,” Eagles coach Ike Taylor said. “They put a little pressure on us in the third quarter and we threw the ball away and didn’t get into our offense. Before we knew it they were running away with it.”

Westport committed 27 turnovers in the game, 21 of them coming after the half.
