The Granville Unified basketball team was back in action last week, traveling to South Glens Falls on Monday and dropping a close 61-59 contest to the Bulldogs.

The game was tight throughout with South Glens Falls taking the lead in the closing minutes to claim the victory.

“We were so impressed with the players, they all did a great job,” said Granville coach Katie Barber. “The score is a reflection of how good our team does shooting.”

Dean Angove paced the Golden Horde with 20 points. Cody McMorris-Lawless added 10 points including a pair of 3-pointers. Andrew Barnes also had 10 points. Shawn Sparks had nine points, all from behind the arc.

Zander Wilson chipped in six points and Connor Martin four.

Cody Devino again was praised for his work as a partner player.

“He helps the students on the court and makes a lot of things happen,” Barber added.

Granville’s record now stands at 1-2 on the season.
