Ticonderoga boys narrowly defeat Peru; Non-league hoops action continues

MORIAH — Braden Perry’s 14 points proved to be the difference in Ticonderoga’s slim, 37-35, win over Peru on the second night of Judy’s 11th Annual Alzheimer’s Awareness Tournament, Thursday.

Thomas Montalbano also netted 10 points for the Sentinels. Perry, along with Ayden Smith each recorded a trey.

“This was a great game played by both teams,” Ticonderoga coach Joe Defayette said.

“We were pretty sloppy on offense in the third quarter but did enough defensively to end the quarter down one. The fourth quarter was back and forth with both teams having leads.”

Defayette said that Owen Stonitsch’s two big free throws late gave the Sentinels a four-point lead with 20 seconds left in the game.

He said Peru then scored on an offensive rebound to trim the lead to two and then fouled on the ensuing play, which gave them a decent look at a tying jump shot, but the shot rimmed out.

“I’m happy for my players, everyone played a part in getting the win,” Defayette said.

For the Nighthawks, Samuel Godfrey III was the leading scorer with 16 points, and Wyatt Premore followed with 11, including Peru’s only two three-pointers.

SARANAC LAKE — Sydney Myers had a whopping 30 points, 10 rebounds and five steals in Saranac’s win over Canton.

Brenna Ducatte added 14 points, including three three-pointers and eight steals. Molly Denis and Layla Pellerin each notched a three as well.

Saranac coach Tim Newell said that Canton’s size presented some challenges for the Chiefs’ defense at first.

“6-foot-3-inch post player Ava Hoy was a force early on, scoring 10 points in the first quarter,” Newell said.

“We made some defensive adjustments to start the second quarter to limit her touches in the paint. We went to a full-court press and forced Canton into turning the ball over.”

Newell said his team is starting to come together well on defense, and have made improvements on offense sharing the ball.

“They all played with great intensity today,” Newell said.

In the loss, the Golden Bears’ Ava Hoy recorded 22 points, followed by Maddie Hoy with 17 points.
