TICONDEROGA -- The Lake George High School Boys Basketball team continued to demonstrate the versatility and talent of their players Dec. 3 as they defeated Ticonderoga Dec. 3 by a score of 57 to 38.
Although the Warriors' offense pumped up their fans, their defense and depth were perhaps most consequential in winning this non-league contest, as three players alone accounted for 36 rebounds.
While 6'7" Matt McGowan shot a solid 25 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to lead the Warriors, Matt Stover at 6'5" put on a performance defensively with seven blocks, 11 rebounds, plus four assists.
In a clear demonstration of the Warriors' depth and court-sense, the ultra-hot Aaron Chambers scored 14 points -- including four 3-pointers -- and J.D. Jenkins hauled down 10 rebounds.
Alex Hladik contributed 8 points, Jeff Maldonado tallied 6, Ryan Moll added 2, and Matt Stover chipped in 1.
The Warriors, frustrating the Ticonderoga offense, were able to keep Ticonderoga away from the basket for most of the court time.
Nate Lenhart sank 13 points for Ticonderoga, a tally which included 3 three-pointers.
With the win, Lake George starts out their promising 2010-11 season 2-0 overall.
