Saints win tourney title


ST. REGIS FALLS – St. Regis Falls didn’t have the offensive explosion in its game on Saturday, as the team did in Friday’s opening round contest of the third annual Brady Frazier Classic. But that doesn’t mean that the team wasn’t effective.

The Saints (2-0) used several defensive sets to steadily pull away from Colton-Pierrepont (1-1) in the championship game of the tourney en route to a 49-21 victory to remain the lone team to hold the tourney’s title. In the consolation game, Parishville-Hopkinton evened its record at 1-1 with a 49-39 victory over Clifton-Fine (0-2).

SRF closed out the first quarter on a 10-0 run to hold a 14-5 lead and methodically pulled away.

“We didn’t have the offensive output tonight (Saturday) as we did to start the game last night (Friday),” said St. Regis Falls coach Justin Todd. “Our defense was the key for us. We forced them to turn the ball over and that’s going to be crucial for us this year, especially if our scoring is going to be not as potent as it was last season. We did establish Brandon (Votra) down low.”

Votra led all scorers with 24 points and all rebounders with 16 boards (8 offensive) and had six assists, three steals and a blocked shot.

Varsity newcomer Tyler Fraser followed with a six-point, five-rebound, two-block effort while the star of Friday’s game, Corey LaBounty, who was named to the All-Tournament Team, added a five-point, four-rebound, two-steal, two-assist performance. “It was especially nice for this group of kids to get this championship. We were all classmates of Brady’s,” explained Todd.

Ethan Knight led Colton-Pierrepont effort with nine points, including the team’s lone 3-pointer. Scott Boyce finished with six points.

Colton-Pierrepont’s Dan Hamilton was named to the All-Tournament team as was Clifton-Fine’s Jake Folsom and Parishville-Hopkinton’s Wyatt Snell.

Consolation Game: Wyatt Snell tossed in a game-high 21 points, including four of the team’s five 3-pointers. Clifton-Fine had Chase Koster and Jake Folsom combine for 19 points, 10 and nine.
