SCHENECTADY COUNTY: Warriors, Tartans fall in class A quarterfinals

"That's how we played today, and the way we shot really dictated everything else we did," Scotia coach Jim Giammattei said.

The Tartans (16-5) stayed with Ichabod Crane through the first half and trailed by two points at halftime. But Scotia-Glenville went scoreless from late in the third quarter through the first 3:52 of the fourth quarter, which helped Ichabod Crane (18-2) build a 44-34 lead.

Patroon Conference all-star Dalton Austin-Michaud led Ichabod Crane with 17 points, eight rebounds and four assists. He also created several Scotia-Glenville turnovers, which sparked the Riders' 27-15 run to end the game.

"He's a great player, and we couldn't control the way he scored " meaning he scored in transition and off steals," Giammattei said of Austin-Michaud. "He's a very good player, and he makes a lot of plays."

James Kehoe had 21 points, and Mike Stopera contributed 15 points for Scotia-Glenville.
