This was the first game that I kept track of statistics from the stands for The Warrior Report, but in the words of JV boys’ basketball player Andy Fox, “The stat sheet didn’t tell the story of this game.”

The Chenango Valley Warriors varsity basketball team lost yet another heartbreaking, and close game Friday night 52-55, this time against the Seton Catholic Central Saints. The Warriors had overcome big point differences and a tough Saints’ offense to tie the score at 52-52. With 4.6 seconds remaining, a saint came marching in for Seton CC and made a huge 3-pointer. The Warriors then called a time-out to get a plan together for the remaining seconds. Chenango Valley inbounded the ball to leading scorer for the season Matt Mullins, who dribbled up to the arc and found a way to get off a shot. This shot bounced off the rim and sealed the deal for the Saints’ victory.

To say that Chenango Valley played terribly would be a huge mistake. The last time CV and SCC met, the Saints won 73-48. This just puts another “heartbreaking” in the loss category for CV. Leading scorer for the Warriors was Seth Mohney with 15 points and 5/8 at the free throw line. Matt Mullins made two 3-pointers, the only two scored by Chenango Valley.
