Generals end stellar regular season with 81-59 win

Schenectady, NY – The Herkimer Five closed out their regular season with a 22-point win at Schenectady CCC on Saturday afternoon. The Generals opened their offensive with an impressive scoring barrage, survived a second-half offensive wobble, and secured a near-perfect regional record.

Head Coach Matt Lee's team was playing well. They were doing a very good job of rebounding, blocking shots, stealing the ball, and scoring. With five minutes left in the half, Herkimer was leading a scrappy and talented Royals team by 26 points. A nice two by Anthony Lanieri and a Schenectady free throw ended the first 20 minutes. Herkimer led 43-20.

The Generals took the floor for the second half, but they did not bring their offense with them. The Royals were swarming, and the visitors could not score for a while. Finally Peter Clark drained two free throws and Rushon Young scored from the floor, restoring Herkimer's 20-point lead.

That big lead was short lived. The Royals ran and worked and cut the lead in half, at 47-37.

The Royals never gave up, but the Generals had taken control of the contest. A three-pointer by Canaan Campbell and free throws by Floyd and Young ended the scoring. Herkimer won 81-59.

The win capped the Generals' magnificent regular season. They won 90% of their games, posting a 27-3 overall record. Their record among Region 3 teams in Division III play is 24-1. SUNY Delhi has the next-best record in regional competition, 22-3.

The Region 3 championship tournament begins on Friday, at SUNY Delhi. The Generals may well be the #1 seed. As soon as the official seedings are announced, this website will post them.
