“It was a back-and-forth battle,” Plattsburgh coach Chris Hartmann said. “We had a 9-point lead in the second half, but AuSable never gave up. They were able to come back.

“We had them on the ropes, but we were never able to just knock them out. Their defense was good; our defense was not.”

The Hornets led by five going into the fourth quarter but were held to eight points the rest of the way.

T.J. LaPoint scored 15 and pulled down 10 rebounds for Plattsburgh. Garrett Frady had 12 points, and Nate Harrington chipped in nine points and nine boards.

“AuSable did very well. They played an outstanding game,” Hartmann said.

SARANAC — Jeremy Bullis scored a game-high 20 points as the Chiefs defeated the Knights.

The game was tied at 18 after one quarter, but Saranac outscored Seton Catholic 41-11 over the next two quarters.

John Maye had 16 points for the Chiefs, and Connor Christopherson contributed 11.

Seton Catholic’s Adam Tedford and Chris Kustos each scored nine, and Keagen Briggs had eight.

“Seton Catholic does some really nice things,” Denis said. “They run a disciplined offense. They set good screens; they work hard to get each other open. And in the first quarter, they knocked down their shots.”

BEEKMANTOWN 65, NORTHERN ADirondack 30

BEEKMANTOWN — The Eagles jumped out to a 17-0 lead after the first quarter and continued to roll against the Bobcats.

Keegan Ryan tossed in a game-high 21 points for Beekmantown, while Justin Stevens added 12 points and Nikolas Koktowski, nine.

“We did a tremendous job on the offensive glass,” Eagles coach Ryan Converse said. “Three guards (Pawandeep Singh, Sam Trombley and Stevens) did a great job of keeping a lot of plays alive. (Northern Adirondack) worked so hard to keep Keegan off the glass that it opened things up for our guards to get weak-side

rebounds.

Daniel Burger had a strong game in a losing cause for the Bobcats with 20 points.

“It was a good, all-around team win,” Converse said. “Everyone contributed.”

All nine Beekmantown players were able to get into the scoring column.

“We hit the first three in overtime to put us up by three, and then Willsboro went on a little bit of a run and outscored us.”
