Under-manned Schroon Lake downed Westport, 70-65, in overtime to grab first place in the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference Northern Division boys basketball race Jan. 30. Playing with just seven players, the Wildcats finished the game with just five as two fouled out. Luckily for Schroon, one of those players was Ethan Tyrrell. Tyrrell had a career night, scoring 30 points including seven in overtime. Westport, which entered the game undefeated, led by as many as 15 points in the first half before a late Schroon surge cut the deficit to nine at half. The Wildcats opened the second half with a 16-5 to grab a lead and the battle was on. Westport had two chances to win the game at the end of regulation. A backcourt foul gave the Eagles a one-and-one with four seconds to play. The shot was missed and Westport was fouled again on the rebound with one second on the clock. Westport again missed the front end of the one-and-one. In the extra session Schroon Lake lost Kyle Bush, who tallied 19 points, and Dennis LeClair, who had eight points, to fouls. It didnt matter, though, thanks to Tyrrell. Trailing by a point, Tyrrell hit a three-pointer with a minute remaining and then nailed four straight free throws in the final seconds to ice the game.
