SAUGERTIES – It takes a lot to impress Matt Hayes, but the Red Hook High School boys basketball coach has been quite enamored of his team lately.
Hayes’ Road Warriors have gone into three of the toughest gyms to play in in the Mid-Hudson Athletic League and came away with three consecutive victories at Roosevelt, at Marlboro and, on Friday night, at Saugerties, as the Raiders clipped the Sawyers, 74-61.
Paddy Parr scored 17 of his game-high 23 points in the first half as Red Hook raced to a 43-26 lead at the break.
“We had a tremendous first half,” Hayes said. “We continue to play very unselfishly.”
Saugerties made a run in the second half, and actually cut the lead to 10 with about three minutes to go. But Nick Michitsch responded with a big, conventional three-point play and ended up scoring seven of his 15 points in the final three minutes to help keep the Sawyers at bay.
Dennis Hare had 13 points for the Raiders and Luke White had 10. Darnell Edge and Paton Gibbs both had big nights for Saugerties. Edge led all scorers with 30 and Gibbs had 17.
“And they earned all of those points,” Hayes said. “They are very talented and are a tough match-up.”
