Boys basketball splits pair

T he Whitehall boys basketball team squeaked by a winless Bolton team Friday night largely on the basis of their play in the first half.

The Railroaders outscored Bolton by seven points in the first half and withstood a fourth quarter to down the Eagles 50-46.

Only four players scored for Whitehall. Justin Hoagland scored a season best 29 points, Colby LaChapelle added 11 points and Brian McLaughlin poured in 8 points. Thomas Ramey was the only other player to record a made basket for Whitehall.

Bolton’s Dustin French recorded a double-double in the game with 15 points and 15 rebounds.

The Railroaders jumped out to a five point first quarter lead and scored 15 points in the second quarter. Whitehall was outscored 25-22 in the second half but was able to hold on for the win.

The win came three days after a painful 65-35 loss to Fort Ann.

Justin Hoagland scored a game-high 20 points for Whitehall, but it wasn’t enough as Fort Ann outscored the Railroaders 59-23 in the first three quarters.

Derek Durkee was one of three Cardinals to reach double digit scoring, pouring in 16 points. Chris Jackson finished with 15 points and George Lehoisky added 12 more.

Fort Ann scored 18 points in the first quarter and carried that momentum throughout the game.

The loss was compounded by an injury to senior Josh Hoagland who damaged the ligaments in his knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

The Railroaders are now 3-7 in the league and 3-8 overall. They travel to Salem on Friday and Fort Edward on Tuesday.
