BEEKMANTOWN — Everything was going as planned for the Beekmantown boys’ basketball team Friday night with a 37-23 halftime lead over Seton Catholic.

But there was a surprising change after intermission.

The Knights outscored the Eagles by a 43-23 margin in the second half, including 17 fourth-quarter points from Adam Tedford, for a 66-60 upset in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference play.

“It was a great team effort and a great win for us,” said Knights’ coach Larry Converse.

Beekmantown, with Greg Manney scoring 14 points in a 23-10 second-quarter run, took a 14-point halftime advantage.

But Tedford, who scored 25 points in all, led a second-half Seton Catholic comeback that also featured some clutch baskets by David LaFountain.

“We went up by one point with about two minutes left and then they scored,” Converse said. “Tedford, who took control of the game, later hit a 3-pointer to give us a four-point lead and they were never able to get closer the rest of the way.”

Tedford, in the fourth quarter alone, hit three 3-pointers, one 2-pointer and went 6-of-8 from the foul line.

Kaden Baugh chipped in with 16 points and eight assists for Seton Catholic, and Keagen Briggs contributed 10 points.

“Baugh’s our point guard and he didn’t have a turnover in the entire second half,” said Converse. “That was big for us and a key why we won the game.”

Keegan Ryan paced the Eagles with 25 points, while Manney finished with 16 and Nikolas Koktowski, eight.

AuSable Valley 55, Saranac Lake 51

SARANAC LAKE — The Patriots built a 29-16 halftime lead and then held off a spirited Red Storm comeback to claim the victory.

Shane Douglas scored 17 points, Austin Depo chipped in with 15, John Goodnough added 11 and Zach Cosgrove, 10, to lead AuSable Valley.

Saranac Lake’s Teddy Yanchitis led all scorers with 20 while Kevin Morgan netted 17 and Kellen Munn, 12.

AuSable Valley’s hustling man-to-man defense shut down Yanchitis and Morgan in the first half while preventing the Red Storm from using its height advantage inside.

“They were picking up Kevin (Morgan) at midcourt and denying the ball to the wing,” said Saranac Lake Coach Dermott Morgan. “The second half, we found the wing and got some entry passes. And they got cold from the field.

“But they hung tough. We were able to get close a couple of times, but Douglas hit a big three for them in the fourth quarter. He was key, with eight points in the fourth.

“Depo did a heck of a job, too, and Goodnough, he was quietly good and tough down low.”

“Ticonderoga did a good job handing around. We never seemed to be able to pull away.”

“(Gabe) Macey hit a 3-pointer to tie the game with time running out in regulation,” Westport coach Ike Tyler said. “He ended up going four-for-four from the free throw line in overtime, too.
