Panthers dominate game early, top Indians

HOOSICK, N.Y. — In a Wasaren League game that most expected to be a highly-competitive battle, the outcome was never in doubt, as the Hoosick Falls boys basketball team took control early against Cambridge and dominated throughout.

The Panthers would go on to win the game 78-44.

Before the Indians even knew what hit them, they were sitting down 21-2 after the first quarter, with a tall task on their hands to get back in the game.

Cambridge would find its rhythm in the second quarter, playing the Panthers to a tie in that frame, but the early deficit was just too much to overcome.

Hoosick Falls was paced by the usual suspects of Jon Kempf and Guy Milliman.

Kempf notched his second 20-point performance of the season in the contest and was giving the Indians fits from behind the arc. The junior had three 3-pointers in the first half. He ended the game with 25 points.

Milliman had another double-digit scoring performance for the Panthers going for 20, while also sinking multiple shots from 3-point range. The senior has scored over 10 points in three of the four Hoosick Falls games this year.

Cambridge was led offensively by guard Tommy English and forward Brenden Holcomb, who combined for more than 20 of the Indians points in the game.

English scored double-digit points for the first this season.

Cambridge will be off until after Christmas. The Indians will take on Corinth on December 27 on the road. Hoosick Falls will be in action Friday against Saratoga Central Catholic at home.
