JOHNSTOWN — After losing its first two games of the season, the Johnstown boys basketball team used a balanced effort to post its first victory of the season Tuesday.

The Sir Bills notched a 52-41 win over Scotia-Glenville in a Foothills Council contest at Johnstown High School.

Abe Miller finished with 17 points to lead Johnstown, while Keegan Feinour and Josh Hoyt each had 13 points.

“We played team basketball tonight,” Johnstown coach Phil Satterlee said.

David Fresoni scored 11 points to pace Scotia-Glenville, while Robert Barrera added 10 points.

The Sir Bills led most of the way, taking an 11-8 lead after one quarter and holding a 19-15 advantage at the half.

Heading into the fourth quarter, Johnstown was up 34-28 as it looked to claim its first win.

However, Scotia-Glenville outscored Johnstown 11-5 in the first four minutes of the final quarter to knot the game at 39-39.

The Sir Bills answered in a big way, using a 10-0 run to retake control of the game.

“Basketball is a game of runs and we came up with one when we needed it,” Satterlee said.

A 3-pointer by Miller started the surge and Chano Cross followed with another 3-pointer to make it 45-39.

Back-to-back layups by Hoyt made it 49-39 with 2:15 to play.

“Our first two games didn’t go the way we wanted them to,” Satterlee said. “[Scotia-Glenville] came back and tied it up in the fourth quarter and we needed to respond. We did and closed out the game well.”

After allowing the Tartans to pull even at 39, the Sir Bills scored 13 of he game’s final 15 points to earn the win.

“This is a good win, but we’ve got to continue to build,” Satterlee said. “We’re not where we want to be yet, but we took a step in the right direction tonight.”

Johnstown (1-2 overall, 1-2 Foothills) is scheduled to travel to Schuylerville on Friday for a 7:30 p.m. game.

Scotia-Glenville (0-3 overall, 0-3 Foothills) is slated to host Glens Falls on Friday at 7 p.m.
