WAYLAND – Eddie Orman Jr. and the York boy’s basketball team had this one circled on their calendar since the game was announced as the prime time slot and main event at the Wayland Sports Boosters Hall of Fame Showcase against defending NYS Class D champion Avoca/Prattsburg.

And York didn’t let the fact that A/P was riding a 39-game winning streak hinder their focus.

Maddux Timothy earned player of the game honors as the senior guard pumped in a game-high 28 points as the defending Class C2 champion Golden Knights flexed their muscles with the convincing 77-69 victory over A/P Saturday night in Wayland.

Timothy was one of three York players in double figures including sharpshooting lefty Jake Pangrazio and the versatile Joe Bauer who added 15 and 14 points respectively.

Tyler Brady and Connor Rodwell nearly gave the Golden Knights all five starters in double figures as they added nine and eight points respectively.

York led 63-43 after three quarters and showed the crowd in attendance this team is not resting on their laurels and could make a run for their own NYS glory this season.

York trailed 20-17 after the first period but outscored A/P 46-23 over the next two periods to take command.

Pangrazio hit some big three’s during the second quarter to push the Knights in front for good.

Avoca/Prattsburghwas led by Haden Abbott’s team-best 27 points which included seven, 3-pointers.

Sawyer Devoe added 22 points and 13 rebounds while Macoy Putnam dropped in eight with 12 assists for A/P (1-1).

” I was proud of our guys, they made alot of big shots tonight,” coach Orman said. “Defensively we were solid at times but had some lapses too. Coach Putnam and his guys are just relentless with pressure and that was a heck of a test. We will take the ‘W’ but have a lot to clean up and can’t wait to get back on the court for another tough challenge Tuesday in Hornell.  A great start to the season though.”

A/P is 1-1 and goes to Greenwood on Thursday to take on 2-0 Jasper-Troupsburg. York will visit the Maple City Tuesday night to take on a tough Red Raiders’ squad.
