Dynamic duo leads Patriots to Remy crown

Staff Report

Kyle Jaquay and Isiah Montgomery combined for 40 points Saturday, leading Cherry Valley-Springfield to a 47-42 boys basketball victory over host Milford in the championship game of the Anton Remy Tournament.

“The two biggest things are giving credit to the two kids who scored 40 of their 47 points,” Milford coach Frank Spurchise said. “Montgomery gave us some trouble underneath. He’s 6-foot-1 or so, but he can jump out of the doggone gym and he’s good around the basket. Jaquay went 8-for-10 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter and that was huge. The end of the game came down to pretty much him hitting the free throws.”

Jaquay, who scored 12 points in the final period, shared tournament MVP honors with Montgomery as the two helped the Patriots to a 2-0 start this season.

Peyton Griffiths scored 17 points and fellow all-tournament selection Paul VanWarner had four for the Wildcats (1-1), who rallied from a 16-4 deficit after one quarter to pull to 20-18 by halftime.

“We couldn’t stop Montgomery inside and we were cold,” Spurchise said. “We woke up in the second quarter and we came back and took the lead at one point. It was a good game. That’s the way it’s going to be in the Tri-Valley League this year.”

Milford is off until Dec. 12, when it hosts Unadilla Valley in a non-league game.

Franklin 35, Roxbury 25

All-tournament selection Alex Brownell, a senior guard, hit a varsity-best six three-pointers en route to a game-high 20 points as Franklin won the consolation game of the Anton Remy Tournament in Milford.

Brownell scored all of his points before the fourth quarter for the Purple Devils (1-1), who received nine points from Derek Beers.

Dakota Caronia’s eight points paced the Rockets (0-2), who received five from all-tournament pick Spencer Hinkley.
