Chazy upends Elizabethtown-Lewis in boys' basketball

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

The Eagles (7-8) shot lights out, connecting on five of their team’s 10 3-pointers for 28 total points in the third quarter en route to a monumental 65-43 upset win over Elizabethtown-Lewis in Mountain Valley Athletic Conference action Tuesday.

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.

OLMSTEDVILLE — Austin Williams fired a game-high 14 points, while Alex Ruzbacki and Bryton Chikukwa each added 10 points for the Mountaineers.

“We were in control from the get-go,” Minerva/Newcomb coach Ed LaCourse said. “We had a couple of six runs that took the wind out of them. We were up 23 at one point, and it was a good opportunity to get everyone in the game.”
