Duanesburg Tops Middleburgh 65-59 in Tough Bout

Written By Editor on 1/16/14 | 1/16/14


In a tight battle between two closely matched varsity squads, the Duanesburg Eagles were able to pull away from the Middleburgh Knights in the fourth quarter to come out of Knights territory with a tough 65-59 victory on Wednesday night.
 
The Knights, relying on Troy Hinkley's sixteen point performance, led after the first quarter and held their own against the Duanesburg squad. Both Ryan Bechtold and Keith Campbell successfully converted three shots from beyond the arch, a major contribution to Middleburgh's home court effort.
 
Duanesburg struggled in the paint, but made up for it with nine three-pointers and a 71.4% overall success rate at the free throw line. Chris Smalls and Dylan Madison each put up sixteen points in support of the Eagles victory, which was in doubt until the very end due to the competitive nature of both teams.
 
Middleburgh has Thursday evening off as they prepare for Friday night's annual Schoburg matchup against Valley rival Schoharie. This years contest will be held at SUNY Cobleskill, with action kicking off at 6 pm between the girls varsity squads, which will be immediately followed by the boys.
