Noka-Bailey helps Lions defeat Orange in OT of Class D

ELIZABETHTOWN —  Indian Lake/Long Lake caught fire from 3-point range in the second half to force overtime, but Elizabethtown-Lewis was able to control the extra session to capture a 44-41 victory in boys’ Section VII Class D quarterfinal action Friday.

Zac Noka-Bailey had a superb game for the Lions, scoring a game-high 19 points. Charlie Huttig chipped in with 14 points, while Justin LaPier finished with 10.

“Zac played a good game,” Elizabethtown-Lewis coach Colby Pulsifer said. “Our inside guys played well and (Hugh) Harwood played well on defense.

“Indian Lake/Long Lake was just on fire for threes in the second half. That really pulled them back into the game.”

Curtis Seaman, who finished with 11 points and three 3-pointers, connected on a big 3-point basket in the fourth quarter to help send the game into overtime.

From there, though, the Orange were only able to score three points. Elizabethtown-Lewis, however, iced it with four free throws.

With the victory, the Lions will take on Moriah, a 60-41 winner over Wells, in Wednesday’s semifinals at AuSable Valley.

Henry Sandiford led the way for Indian Lake/Long Lake with 16 points. Matt Moore chipped in with eight.
