Boys Basketball Roundup: Schuylerville gets past Johnstown

JOHNSTOWN — The Schuylerville Black Horses visited the Johnstown Sir Bills on Tuesday night for a Foothills Council boys basketball matchup at Fulton-Montgomery Community College.

The Horses took advantage of a strong third-quarter effort and they were able to hold off the Sir Bills in the final quarter to get the win by a score of 60-48.

Leading the way for Johnstown was Keegan Feinour with 14 first-half points and 18 on the night making him the game’s high scorer.

“I thought Keegan did a really good job scoring down in the post tonight,” Johnstown coach Matt Guzielek said.

Schuylerville’s Joshua Mason got things started when he scored just 20 seconds into the game, but Trevor Porter hit a 3-pointer and Ethan Wager added a bucket to jump out to a 5-2 lead. The Horses fired back with a 3 pointer by Stratton Sherman and another basket from Mason to retake the lead. Johnstown reeled off six straight points, four from Feinour and a basket from Adam Wilson to take an 11-7 lead with 3:26 to go in the first quarter. Derek Baldwin hit two 3 pointers in a row from the corner to take back the lead for Schuylerville and Sherman scored to put the Horses up by four. Feinour made a short jumper in the lane for Johnstown with 1:06 left but Baldwin answered by driving the baseline for a lay-up. Feinour got the final basket of the quarter with six seconds left to cut the Horses lead to 17 – 15 at the end of the first quarter.

Feinour started the second quarter for the Sir Bills with a quick bucket, but Nicholas Budesheim scored a basket and two free throws to extend the Horses lead to four again. Joshua Hoyt followed his shot and put the rebound back in for the Sir Bills and Wager added a basket to tie the game at 23 – 23 with 3:15 left in the half. The two teams exchanged baskets when Baldwin tipped in a basket for the Horses and Feinour responded with a bucket for the Sir Bills. Paul Harshbarger put Schuylerville ahead by two with 27 seconds left but Porter scored to tie the game with two seconds left making the score 27-27 at the half.

“I thought we were active defensively,” Guzielek said of his team’s first-half play. “We had to make an adjustment late in the first quarter and the guys responded very well. We were able to get out on their shooters and rebound.”

In the third quarter, Schuylerville took control of the game, outscoring the Sir Bills by a margin of 20-4. Harshbarger, Mason, Baldwin and Sherman combined to rattle off 14 straight points to start the quarter. The Sir Bills were held scoreless until Feinour scored at the 2:35 mark. After Baldwin drove the length of the court for the lay in Feinour scored Johnstown’s only other points in the period. Mason and Sherman each scored again to make the score 47-31 at the end of the third quarter.

“I thought we were a little flat and I didn’t think we were very aggressive,” Guzielek said. “We knew they were going to pick up the tempo.”

The Sir Bills got back on track in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough to overtake the Horses. After Mason scored for the Horses, the Sir Bills went on an 8-0 run getting baskets from Porter, Noah Massey and two baskets from Matthew Boyle to cut the Horses lead to 10 with 5:34 remaining in the game. Mason scored for Schuylerville but Porter answered with a 3 pointer. Baldwin then hit a 3 point shot but Trey Stover responded with a 3-pointer for Johnstown, making the Schuylerville lead only nine with 3:52 left. After a timeout, the Sir Bills started to use their fouls to stop the clock but it was too little, too late as Harshbarger, Budesheim and Sheman combined to go six for six from the foul line over the final minute. Boyle was able to add a 3-pointer for the Sir Bills, making the final score, 60-48.

“I thought we had them back on their heels when we went man-to-man,” Guzielek said. “Unfortunately, in the fourth quarter, even though we were able to get stops, we had too many offensive rebounds and that really hurt us,” he said.

Johnstown, (2-5 overall, 2-4 Foothills) is scheduled to host Gloversville (3-3 overall, 3-3 Foothills) on Friday night at FMCC at 7:30 p.m.
