Burghers defeat Cardinals in rematch

Assisting Perrone, Frye, Belden and Werner were Mike Curtis with three points, Jason Power with two, plus one point from Tyler Williams, just drafted from the JV team, who hit a foul shot for his first Varsity basket.

Robert Sprague led Fort Ann with 24 points and 12 rebounds.

With the win, Warrensburg improves to 10-8 for the 2009-10 season.

While the win demonstrates to the Burgher team they're true capabilities, they'll need all the confidence they can muster for the Sectional tournament.

This year, the divisions have been realigned and Warrensburg, for many years a "D" or "C" competitor, will be competing against both "C" and bigger "CC" schools.

Schloss said his team was up to the challenge.

"We're peaking at a good time," he said. "When you play good defense, box out well and spread the shots around, good things happen."

Lake George 51,

Fort Edward 41

FORT EDWARD -- There's a burden that comes with being the perennial "big shot" in the Adirondack League, and it's that everyone is gunning to bring you down.

And that's what almost happened Monday, if it weren't for a scoring surge by Matt McGowan that turned around a seven-point third quarter deficit, converting it into a 10-point win for his Warriors.

Trailing Fort Edward 34-27 at the end of the third quarter, Lake George rallied with 24 points to defeat Fort Edward 51-41 in a league crossover game.

Matt McGowan's 10 fourth-quarter points were aided by the fact that foul trouble plagued Nick Abare, McGowan's Fort Edward counterpart.

McGowan scored 22 points in the victory, followed by Alex Hladik with 17. Jeff Maldonado added six, Aaron Chambers contributed four, and Chris Kosz chipped in two.

For Fort Edward, Abare and Mike Taft each scored 11 to lead their team.

With this game behind them, Lake George improves to 14-4 for the season.
