Prattsburgh Basketball Falls in State Play-in Game

Vikings drop tough loss to Clyde-Savannah

PENN YAN, N.Y. (18 SPORTS) - Highlights from Wednesday night's NYS Class D state play-in game in Penn Yan.

Prattsburgh boys basketball saw their season come to an end at the hands of Clyde-Savannah, 76-69. The Vikings (20-4) tied the game at 53 after three quarters, and closed the gap to just four with a little over a minute left in the fourth, but ultimately fell short.

Marcus Chance Jr. scored 28 points for the Eagles (21-4), who now advance to the New York State Class D quarterfinals. The Eagles will next play Buffalo East at Buffalo State College Saturday at Noon. Derrick Chance added 19 points and Dru Carnevale chipped in 16 for Clyde-Savannah. 

With a little over a minute left in the game, Chance Jr. mustered up a huge game-changing block on Kris Johnson of Prattsburgh. The Eagles retained possession and would close out the game. A Johnson basket then would have brought the game to a one possession contest for Prattsburgh. 

The Vikings will lose the bulk of their team to graduation next year, including the school's all-time leading scorer, Garrett Socola. Also graduating from the team will be Troy Sanford, Mo Anderson, Tommy Morse and Sheldon Lass. 

18 Sports congratulates the Vikings on another Section V title year, a year to remember. Check out the highlights from Wednesday night in Penn Yan.
