“Christopherson played well for them. He’s a good player.”

Adam Jaquish put up 15 points for the Vikings, and Ryan Shpur had eight.

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.”
