UNADILLA – A strong second half comeback wasn’t enough to spare the Unadilla Valley boy’s varsity basketball team on Wednesday night, Feb. 22, as they fell just short against the Walton Warriors on a final score of 69-61.

The Storm were subsequently knocked out of the Section IV, Class C Sectional playoffs as a result of the loss.

After digging themselves in a deep 10-point hole after the opening quarter, the Storm did a better job of limiting the Walton offense in the second quarter, and went in at the halftime break down by 14 at 41-27.

The UV defense stepped up once more in the third quarter, and managed to hold Walton to just 10 points, while scoring 16 on the offensive end to cut the deficit to just eight points going into the eight minutes of play.

However, it wasn’t to be when all was said and done. UV battled to a fourth period tie around the halfway mark in the quarter, a momentum builder that soon fell apart as the Storm’s staunch and brave defensive stand came to an end, and with that end Walton was able to close out an eight-point victory – matching UV for 18 points per team down the stretch.

“We dug ourselves in a hole early, but battled back in the second half,” said Unadilla Valley head coach Matt Osborne. “Too many turnovers throughout the game resulted in easy baskets for them.”
