Glens Falls Boys Basketball Head to Section 2 Class B Championship Game
Glens Falls, 69… Tamarac, 67.
The Glens Falls Boys Basketball team was up to the challenge of playing against Tamarac at the Cool Insuring Arena! This match up was the Semifinal game of the Section 2 Class B tournament. The talented Glens Falls underclassman showed off their skills to help Glens Falls shift the momentum and beat Tamarac: “For our kids, it was the first time that they were on this court and the first time that they have been in this position… So it was a new experience” Glens Falls coach Rob Girard commented.
Glens Falls – who was down at the half, 35 to 29 – took the lead when Sophomore Oscar Lilac drained two back-to-back 3-pointers at the end of the third quarter; Lilac finished the game with 13 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and four steals. Sophomore Kellen Driscoll led Glens Falls with 26 points: “Kellen has been great all year, but he played great today” Girard said. Driscoll added a pair of free throws at the end of the game to put Glens Falls ahead for good, but Tamarac’s Joey Poulin gave it his all, scoring two 3-pointers in the final 10 seconds of the game… He finished the game as Tamarac’s high-scorer with an impressive 32 points, 15 of which were in the second quarter.
