It was a team effort for Lake George as the Warriors knocked off the top-seeded Granville Golden Horde in the Class C Sectional Semifinals in their 69-55 win.
The top-seeded Golden Horde fell behind early, but unlike other top seeds this week, was unable to mount the comeback needed to get past the Warriors as fouls, turnovers and missed shots added up, especially in the third quarter.
While Mason Flatley led the Lake George Warriors with 22 points, two other Warriors had over 10 points. Alex Jones scored 12, while Caleb Scrime, despite missing part of the third quarter after going down hard chasing a rebound off a missed Granville shot, put up 17 points.
Matthew Fuller led the Golden Horde with 21 points, 9 of which came in the 4th quarter. Trace Bourne scored 10 points.
Lake George became the only team to knock off a higher seed in the 10 semifinal games at the Glens Falls Civic Center, though their win should come as little surprise to those who have observed the Adirondack League this season. It was the second straight win for Lake George over the Granville Golden Horde, who became league rivals this year with their move to the Adirondack League from the Wasaren League. This was the fourth meeting between these two teams this season, with Granville winning the first two.
Lake George won the two that mattered most, however, first in the Adirondack League playoffs, then now in the Class C Semifinals to end the Golden Horde's season.
The Warriors will take on the Warriors of Stillwater for the Class C
Sectional Championship Saturday afternoon, 2PM at the Glens Falls Civic
