Boys lose three

Boys Bball BrianDespite scoring a game high 18 points in the fourth quarter, the Whitehall boys basketball team was unable to complete a comeback against Warrensburg on Monday night, falling 54-48.

Trailing by ten points entering the final quarter, the Railroaders managed to cut the lead to as few as six points but were unable to get any closer.

Tyler Wilcox scored all 10 of his points in the fourth quarter and recorded a couple of blocked shots to help preserve the Burgers’ lead. Shea Irish led Warrensburg with 22 points.

Three players scored in double digits for Whitehall. Carl Rehm led the Railroaders with 21 points, Justin Hoagland scored 12 points and Brian McLaughlin added 11 points.

The Railroaders struggled on the offensive end of the floor in the first half, scoring a total of 13 points as Warrensburg took advantage of its length to limit Whitehall’s offensive rebounds.

But McLaughlin sparked Whitehall in the third quarter, hitting three 3-pointers, and Rehm seemingly got to the free throw line at will in the second half, going seven for 12 from the charity stripe.

The Railroaders trailed by only six points late in the fourth quarter but Wilcox scored four points on two fast break opportunities to seal the win for Warrensburg.

Last Friday, Whitehall was defeated on its home floor by Hartford 58-31.

The Tanagers held Whitehall under 10 points in the first, second and fourth quarters as they rolled to their eighth win of the season.

Tad Jones scored a game high 36 points for Hartford.

McLaughlin scored 14 points for Whitehall.

Hartford scored 37 points in the second and third quarters to open up an insurmountable 47-27 lead.

The game came three days after Whitehall suffered a heart-breaking loss to Fort Edward.

Nate Burkhardt sank the game-winning lay-up with one second left to give the Flying Forts a 49-47 victory.

Burkhardt scored 18 points, including 11 in the fourth quarter, and grabbed 13 rebounds.

McLaughlin had 17 points for Whitehall and Hoagland added 15.

The Railroaders opened the fourth quarter with a seven point lead but were outscored by Fort Edward 15-6.

With the losses, the Railroaders fall to 3-11 in the Adirondack League and 3-12 overall. They host Fort Ann tomorrow night at 5:30 p.m. in their season finale.
