Ausable Valley Pulls Away From Lisbon Boys

BY DAVE SHEA

LISBON - After losing the lead to a Lisbon surge late in the second quarter, visiting Ausable Valley of Section 7 used an explosive spurt to gain a 31-22 halftime lead in Monday's nonleague game.

The Patriots did an even better job defending and expanding the lead in the second half pulling away to a 73-45 nonleague victory which was originally scheduled to be played at North Country Community College on Saturday. The 5-3 Patriots handed 9-3 Lisbon its first nonleague loss after five straight wins and finished with a 42-23 advantage in the second half.

Led by the combination of muscular forward Nate Doner with 14 points and 12 rebounds and slender 6-3 center Carter Maitzel with 14 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists AV consistently limited Lisbon to one shot per possession and delivered a steady stream of interior scoring.

Guard Luis Perez used his penetrating decisions and finishing ability on the break to score a game-high 21 points with 14 in the first half for 8-3 Class C Ausable Valley. Eli Douglas tallied 11 points with four steals

"We are a young team but we have worked very hard at consistency. We have had a good year in our league. Our three losses have come against ranked B and C teams," said AV Coach James Douglass.

Kaiden Mussen and Karter Jordan scored 12 and 11 points leading Lisbon and Tegan Jordan netted seven. Other scoring came from: Jack LaRock (5), Greg Wood (3), Ethan Martin (3) and Jayden Carr (4).

"Ausable Valley is a very solid team and we didn't play defense well enough against them," said Lisbon Coach Bob Jordan.

"We didn't have a lot of unforced turnovers but we had too many turnovers which we could have avoided if we passed the ball better."
