“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.

Schroon Lake 50, Westport 41

SCHROON LAKE — After a sluggish start, the Wildcats received 21 points from Jesse Shaughnessy, including 11 in the fourth quarter to hold off the Eagles in quarterfinal action.

“We were tight, and (Westport) played a pretty good ballgame,” Schroon Lake coach Lee Silvernail said. “We had a lot of turnovers early and just couldn’t finish on some shots in the paint. It took us until the fourth quarter to get things going.”

Silvernail said Alex Shaughnessy played a pivotal role with his shooting touch from beyond the arc. The sophomore guard finished with 15 points, including four 3-pointers.

Ryan Davis paced the Eagles with 13 points in the loss, while Sam Napper contributed 12 markers.

GIRLS

Minerva/Newcomb 46, Keene 37

KEENE — The Mountaineers were able to come back from a 15-6 first-quarter deficit to rally and upset the Beavers in the girls’ Class D quarterfinals.

Minerva/Newcomb outscored Keene 40-22 after the first quarter to take control of the game. Beavers coach Brian LaValle said it would be hard without his point guard Megan Hall, but hoped his team could get through it.

“Not having Megan hurt us at the point position (Friday),” LaValle said. “The turnovers (Friday) hurt us and we only had seven free-throw attempts while they had 37, so that was a key point throughout the game.”

Makenzie Winslow led the way for the Mountaineers with 23 points and Gabby McNally had 16 as well.

Tucker Geiger led the way for the Beavers getting a double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Naomi Peduzzi had six points, 11 rebounds and six blocks on the night.

“I am happy the second string played well for us and how the girls played all season,” LaValle said. “We played well all year and hopefully next year can be even better.”

With the win, Minerva/Newcomb moves on to play top-seeded Elizabethtown-Lewis Tuesday at AuSable Valley.
