Lake George extends early-season run
Lake George 72,
WHITEHALL - Regardless of how early it may be in the 2010-11 basketball season, the word "undefeated" has a satisfying sound to it.
Fans of the Lake George boys basketball team were savoring the term early this week as the 4-0 team headed into a showdown with Corinth, also undefeated at 3-0.
The Warriors kept their unblemished season record continuing with a decisive victory over Whitehall Dec. 10.
Matt McGowan led the charge with 26 points and teammate Alex Hladik tallied 15 in the contest.
The middle two quarters were when the Warriors got into their groove, scoring 41 points to Whitehall's seven.
Contributing in the Lake George effort were Jeff Maldonado scoring three 3-pointers, Matt Stover also adding nine points, Aaron Chambers with five, Ryan Moll with four, and J.D. Jenkins and Erik Jones adding two each. Hladik and Chambers each recorded a three-pointer in the victory.
BOLTON LANDING - The Bolton Eagles boys basketball team accomplished a scoring margin rarely seen in the region - containing their opponent Elizabethtown to a mere three points in the final two quarters, and only 16 points overall in the second half of the non-league game Dec. 13.
Bolton's aggressive defenders held Elizabethtown's leading scorer, Hunter Mowery scoreless throughout the game.
But that's not all.
Bolton's offense was firing on all cylinders Monday as well, with four players scoring eight points or more. Mitchell Jordon led his team with 11 points, followed by Matthew Smith with nine; Tyler Calzada and Billy Smith with eight, Dustin French with six and Tim Flynn with two. Calzada scored two 3-pointers in the game.
WELLS - Bolton's steely defense contained Wells to a modest 20 points while their free-wheeling offense netted a solid 60 points for a decisive victory Dec. 11.
