CROWNPOINT — Mike Gould scored 13 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter and overtime to help the Panthers grab the win over the Eagles in MVAC action.
Crown Point took control of the game early and ended the half up eight points. Chazy had other plans to open the second. The eagles came out and outscored the Panthers 24-6 in the third quarter.
“They came out and punched us in the mouth in the third,” Crown Point coach John Swinton said. “We could have buried our head at that point, but the kids stepped up to the plate in the fourth and showed what they got.”
The Panthers would send it to overtime when Gould hit a free throw with 1.8 seconds left to play. Crown Point outscored Chazy 26-8 in the fourth and overtime combined.
Chazy had solid performances from Keenen Hampton with 22 points and Hayden Guay who had 15. Craig Botten also chipped in 13.
