Adam Martin of Brushton-Moira buried three threes scoring 11 points and St. Regis Falls’ Brandon Votraw worked the paint for 12 points with six in each half. Malone’s Alex Johnson tallied nine and Lisbon’s Jake Putney, Heuvelton’s Reilly Pierce and Madrid-Waddington’s Jacob Barney followed with six and five points.

Louis Goodrow of St. Regis Falls and Austin LaMay of Malone added two points apiece.
