Slattery's free throws send Moriah past Westport

PORT HENRY — Taylor Slattery converted two clutch free throws down the stretch, helping the No. 13-ranked Moriah boys’ basketball team to a 47-45 win over Westport in Northern Basketball League action Tuesday.

The Eagles put in a shot in the closing second, but it wasn’t enough as they fell by two.

“Moriah held a seven-point lead after three quarters, then Westport started creating turnovers,” Vikings coach Brian Cross said. “(John) Doyle, (Ryan) Davis, (Thomas) Mero and (Anderson) Gay all played well for them.”

Adam Jaquish had 17 points, 16 rebounds, four assists and four blocks to lead Moriah in the two-point victory. Slattery chipped in with nine points.

Davis led Westport with 13 points, while Doyle added 12 points.
