Argyle rallies to top Hartford, 64-62

When Argyle and Hartford get together in any sport, fans can expect it will be a barnburner. The first meeting between the two squads didn’t disappoint.

Argyle trailed at the half but rallied for a 64-62 win over its Route 40 rival Tanagers in Adirondack League boys basketball last Wednesday evening.

Hunter Ingram and Brandon Saunders combined for 52 points for the Scots.

Hartford looked to be on its way to an impressive road win. The Tanagers opened up a 36-24 lead at halftime and seemed to be in total control.

Argyle, however, owned the final two quarters. The Scots outscored Hartford 40-26 after the break to come back for the victory.

Ingram hit key free throws in the final seconds to seal the deal for the Scots.

Ingram paced Argyle with 30 points. Saunders added 22.

Ray Harrington poured in 20 points for Hartford. Austin Wells added 18 and Nate Fiske 10.
