Boys basketball sees first win of season

B y Jaime Thomas

The Granville basketball team claimed its first win of the season on Friday in a 75-50 victory over Tamarac.

Leading the team were Evan Hoagland and Jacob Young, who scored 23 points apiece.

The Horde started off strong with a 24-17 first quarter were ahead by 11 points at the half. They kept up the momentum during a 22-11 third quarter, sealing the win.

“They did the things they’re supposed to do,” Coach Duane Dodge said of his team. “They put up quality shots.”

He explained that as a young team, the boys need to continue shooting throughout their games, regardless of results.

“They need to learn they’re not gonna make every shot, but they need to keep shooting, and they’ll score more points.”

Additionally, Dodge said another key aspect to winning a game was doing better with turnovers—the Horde only made 11.

“If they continue to do small things, they’ll have better games,” Dodge said.

For the Bengals, Nick Zotto grabbed 19 points.

The win came three days after a 53-16 loss to Hoosic Valley.

A game that began evenly-matched became lopsided as it neared the end.

Nick Liebig and Hoagland led Granville with a three-pointer each, netting five and six points, respectively.

The boys travel to Greenwich tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m., then rest for a week before the American Legion Christmas Tournament next weekend.
