CROWN POINT — Crown Point came away with the win over Lake Placid, but Panthers coach Jason Hughes is hoping for some continued improvement from his squad after its Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference victory, Monday.
“We shot it poorly tonight, particularly from the foul line, and we failed to execute offensively,” Hughes said. “Luckily, our defense continues to carry us, and we woke up at halftime and nearly shut them out in the third; We are happy with the win, any win, but it was very sloppy.”
Trevor Harris and Noah Spaulding each had strong nights for Crown Point, scoring 16 and 12 points, respectively, en route to the team's 45-23 victory, while Reese Pertak scored well off the bench, netting nine points.
Eben Daby’s six points led the Blue Bombers, followed closely by PJ Colby with five and Chris Byrne and Sam Hooker with four each.
“Credit to Lake Placid, their zone defense was very effective and they played hard," Hughes said.
