LAKE PLACID — After suffering a big loss to open up the season, the Lake Placid boys’ basketball team found themselves in a much closer contest on Friday. However, the Blue Bombers couldn’t put all the pieces together and fell 50-32 at home to the Chazy Eagles.

Chazy had everything working early and jumped out to a 15-6 lead after the first quarter. In the second quarter, Lake Placid was able to match the intensity to make the score 26-17 at halftime.

After intermission, the Blue Bombers struggled on the offensive side and were held to just one point in the third quarter. Despite the team posting a better offensive performance in the fourth, they were unable to mount the comeback.

Seb Cecunjanin led Lake Placid with 19 points, which included four three-pointers. Talon Jordon added five and PJ Colby chipped in four in the loss. The Blue Bombers’ Owen Hayes, Colton Kondrat and Foster Wood each scored two points.

Chazy’s Dylan McAfee paced his team with 18 points, while Evan Dwyer had 15 and Zamir Foster had 13. McAfee and Dwyer also combined for five three-pointers.

With the loss, Lake Placid falls to 0-2. The team will take on Crown Point on the road Wednesday. The game is slated to start at 6 p.m.
