WAYLAND – York’s had a 29-point victory over defending NYS Class D champion Avoca/Prattsburgh .

The Golden Knights turned it up on either side of the court, whenever they chose to, building a 19-6 lead after one, extending it to 35-16 at the half and finishing the game with the 77-48 victory at the Wayland Hall of Fame Showcase Saturday in Wayland.

York placed three players in double figures including seniors Jake Pangrazio and Tyler Brady who combined for 44 points.

Pangrazio finished the game with 24 points, including three, second-half trifectas while Brady bobbed and weaved his way to 20 points.

Pangrazio would earn MVP honors for the Golden Knights, who improved to 2-0 on the season.

Parker Bonafede and Joe Bauer added 11 and eight points respectively.

Avoca/Prattsburgh (0-1), who started two eighth-graders, was led by JJ Crowder with 19 points while Macoy Putnam netted 16.

“It was a good win for us today,” York head coach Eddie Orman Jr. said. “Prattsburgh always offers a variety of challenges in how they play and compete. We were able to maintain our focus for a majority of the night and get some high-quality stops when needed.”
