LAKE LUZERNE - Hadley-Luzerne's inspired play in the first and third quarters powered them to a 46-39 win Jan. 20 over the North Warren Cougars, who had an off-night.

North Warren standout Joe Aiken turned his ankle early on, and he spent much of his time hobbling around the court, which hampered both the Cougars offense and defense - considering their squad was a shallow five players.
