Boyeas lead North Country to two wins

ELMIRA — Michael Boyea led all scorers with 17 points as North Country Community College defeated the Elmira JV team 78-54 in men’s college basketball Thursday.

Clement Gibson added eight points and six steals for the Saints (3-3), while Ege Cinel scored 14.

“I thought our energy was very good,” North Country coach Chad LaDue said. “We shared the basketball. We didn’t shoot it particularly well, but it wasn’t for lack of effort. All in all, it was a very good day for North Country basketball.”

Thirteen different players scored for the Saints. LaDue said Boyea played very well and Gibson had his best game so far.

Ivan Grcic added nine points for North Country, and Nikola Cvetanovic chipped in seven.
