Richfield Springs used a late surge to defeat host Laurens, 66-58, in Tri-Valley League boys basketball Tuesday, Jan. 7.

The Leopards owned a 51-50 lead with two minutes remaining, but turnovers and missed opportunities allowed RS to make its free throws and tally a 16-7 run late.

“Overall, the game was back-and-forth, we just couldn’t finish out,” Laurens coach Andy Carr observed.

Brady Young topped all Richfield Springs scorers with 18 points, making four field goals and going 7-for-8 from the foul line. Dylan Hosford had 14 points and Cameron Duncan contributed 13 points to the Indians’ cause.

Cooperstown 58, Sauquoit Valley 50

John Kennedy posted a 20-point, 20-rebound double-double to lead Cooperstown to its eighth straight win with a Center State Conference decision over Sauquoit Valley.

Kennedy, a junior who is in his second year playing basketball, improved on averages of about 15 points and 15 rebounds entering the game.

“He’s starting to pick it up quicker, recognizing the double teams. He was actually triple-teamed tonight,” Cooperstown coach John Lambert said. “He has a big size advantage, but it doesn’t make it any easier when the physicality is something I am talking to the ref about a lot.”

The Hawkeyes took leads of 11-0 and 18-2 early on before Sauquoit closed the gap to 27-24 with a 16-5 run in the second quarter.

A 20-13 edge in the third quarter gave the Hawkeyes room to finish off their fourth conference victory.

Kennedy led all scorers with his 20 points on eight field goals and four free throws. His 20 rebounds were a team high, as were his six blocks.

Ryan Lansing followed Kennedy with 12 points on five field goals and a 2-for-2 effort at the foul line, while Spencer Lewis reached double figures with 11 points. Lansing also had six steals.
