Boys Club Of NY Falls In Overtime Thriller

Northfield Mount Hermon upends Boys Club Of New York in a thrilling overtime game

Northfield Mount Hermon 60, Boys Club of New York 53, OT

Northfield put the game away convincingly in the extra stanza after BCNY's Jamel Ferguson had forced overtime with a corner three-pointer with :30 to play in regulation.

A baseline jumper by junior point guard Gary Correia, a baby hook by Adam Walker, and successful trips to the free throw line by Terrell Williams and Dan McGeary put the game away in OT.

Walker, a 6-foot-7 1/2 post-graduate from Christ the King, was the high scorer for Northfield with 22 points. He wasn't finishing well in this game but was consistent at the line, finishing 12-for-15.

Correia was arguably the team's top performer, hitting for 15 points and making some crucial second half shots. The 6-foot-6 junior Williams scored 14 points and New Hampshire-bound guard Dan McGeary was also very solid, pitching in with nine.

The 6-foot-4 shooting guard Ferguson, a post-graduate from Queens who recently left Milford Academy in New Berlin, New York, led BCNY with 21 points, 15 in the second half. Ferguson is unsigned and qualified.
