(Glens Falls, NY)


 -Glens Falls captured the Class B N.Y. State Federation title as they knocked off Cardinal O'Hara 88-79 in their home city of Glens Falls. The Indians after trailing 2-0 used an 18-1 first quarter run to gain control of the game and held on late in the fourth quarter for the victory.


-Joseph Girard III of Glens Falls, playing on a sore ankle scored a game high 43 points, however his cousin Trenton Girard was just as important as he netted 21 points on five three pointers including one late in the fourth quarter when Cardinal O'Hara was making a scoring run and cut the Indians lead to three points. It seemed as if the clutch Trenton Girard three pointer was scripted as it has happened in just about every game during the Indians magical run to the Sectional, State and Federation titles.
