Austin Depo’s layup with four seconds left proved to be the difference as AuSable Valley battled back to capture the Champlain Valley Athletic Conference boys’ basketball game against Peru, 68-66.

“Facteau came into the ball game when Shane Douglass fouled out,” Patriots coach Jamie Douglass said. “With ice water in his veins he hit two free throws in front of a big crowd to send it into overtime.

“It was a back-and-forth, back-and-forth game. People were just going crazy.”

AuSable Valley held a 10-point lead at one point in the second quarter, but the Indians’ Conor Casey came off the bench and drained three 3-pointers to pull Peru back.

The Patriots led 31-29 at the half.

The Indians continued their comeback as they outscored AuSable Valley 17-13 in the third quarter to take a 46-43 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Casey led all scorers in the game with 21 points, including four 3-pointers. Bret Boyer added 17 points for Peru, while Hunter Bruno chipped in with eight.

Austin Goodnough, who assisted on the game-winning basket, led the way for the Patriots with 20 points and six assists. Douglas added 19 points and five steals, while Brandon Brooks contributed eight points. Depo had seven points and 10 rebounds.

“This was a good win for us,” Douglass said. “Peru is an outstanding team.

“This was a great game to watch,”

TICONDEROGA 53

TICONDEROGA — Beekmantown jumped out to a 17-0 lead over Ticonderoga in the first quarter, but the Sentinels didn’t concede to the Eagles.

In fact, Ticonderoga tied the game with two minutes left in the fourth quarter before falling behind and losing, 58-53.

“They came out and they were more aggressive,” Ticonderoga coach Joe Defayette said. “At halftime, we talked about that we have two choices: We can stop and let up, or we can chip away at this and get back into it. That’s what we decided to do.”

Despite five three pointers and a team-high 21 points from Mike Graney, the Sentinels couldn’t stop a run by the Eagles in the last two minutes to close the game.

Keegan Ryan led the way for Beekmantown with 28 points. Greg Manney was second on the team with 11 points.

SCHROON LAKE 52

CHAZY 31

CHAZY — Jesse Shaughnessey scored 15 points and Tanner Stone had 13 as the dynamic duo led Schroon Lake to a 52-31 victory over Chazy Tuesday.

No other Wildcats other than Bobby Rose (9) and Jeff Armstrong (6) scored more than three points, but the offense got some help by a 10-for-47 shooting performance by the Eagles.

Rebounding also gave the Wildcats a boost.

“Schroon Lake seemd to control the rebounding aspect of the game,” Chazy coach Cory Thompson said.

However, Chazy did manage to hold Schroon Lake well below its season average for points (68).

“I thought defensively both teams played very very well,” Thompson said. “I was happy to keep them under their season average. I would have liked to have kept it closer, but we’ll get a rematch in February.”

Keenan Hampton led the Eagles with nine points.
