Faith Heritage 64, Otselic Valley 56
CHITTENANGO – Faith Heritage never lost the lead in the second half, and eliminated Otselic Valley from the Section III, Class D playoffs Thursday night at Chittenango High School.
Mike Last and Andrew Loucy had 19 and 16 points respectively for the winning club. “We started slow in the first half, but we got within two points in the third quarter and were looking good,” said OV coach Dave Loomis. “ The momentum shifted and we stayed in striking distance. We just missed some free throw opportunities in the fourth quarter that we needed to convert.”
The Vikings made 11-of-19 foul shots in the fourth quarter. Robert Guyer had a season-high 22 points to go with nine rebounds to pace OV (20-2). David Cerasani added 20 points. “Robert had a great game for us and played his heart out – they all played their hearts out,” Loomis said. “We played well enough to win, but could not get over the hump.”..
