Schuylerville Boys' Basketball Runs Winning Streak to 12 Games

By | Sports

SCHUYLERVILLE – Going for their 12th straight win, the Schuylerville Black Horses welcomed the Hoosic Valley Indians to town for a matchup of the top two teams in the Wasaren League standings. Schuylerville held Hoosic Valley to just three points in the third quarter and held off a late rally to remain undefeated in Wasaren League play and pick up the 47-43 victory. 


Hoosic Valley was attempting to avenge a 20-point home loss they suffered at the hands of Schuylerville back on December 19. In fact, the Indians had a seven-game win streak of their own heading into the game, having not lost a game since their blowout loss to Schuylerville earlier this season. 

The first two quarters were quite even with both teams combining for 37 points in the second quarter alone. Hoosic Valley held a four-point lead at the half, 30-26. 

Schuylerville’s senior-loaded team would adjust to the Hoosic Valley attack in the third quarter, locking down the Indians to just three points while backing up their 18-point second quarter with a 16-point third to take a 42-33 lead into the fourth. 

The nine-point lead would be just enough as Schuylerville added five more to hold off a late 10-point burst from Hoosic Valley to hold on for the 47-43 win.

For Schuylerville, seniors Shane Lyon and Dan Waldron led the way with 15 and 14 points, respectively. Lyon would make it to the free throw line 13 times, which were five more free throw attempts than Hoosic Valley would take as an entire team. Lyon went 6-13 from the line. Lyon did not attempt a single free throw in their first meeting this year. 

Senior guard Tyler Hayes would help Schuylerville from downtown, adding two three-point baskets. 

Hoosic Valley’s John Rooney scored a game-high 19 while teammate Mike Pierre was right behind him with 18 of his own. No other players for Hoosic Valley would score more than five points, with one player, Mac Anderson, failing to record a field goal attempt for the entire game. 

With the win, Schuylerville enjoys a comfortable two-game lead over Hoosic Valley in the Wasaren League standings. Overall, the Black Horses are 13-1, and have won their 12th straight game. They are a perfect 11-0 in league play.

Hoosic Valley is also playing great basketball this season, but cannot seem to slay the Schuylerville dragon. They are 9-2 in Wasaren League play, with both losses being to Schuylerville. They are 13-2 overall this season. 

Next up for Schuylerville is a home game against the 1-9 Granville Golden Horde on Friday, February 1 with tip off at 7 p.m. 

Hoosic Valley has a tougher matchup on Friday night, heading to Greenwich to play the 7-4 Witches.
