Marauders advance with win over Copenhagen
NEW YORK MILLS, N.Y. (WKTV) - The NY Mills boys basketball team opened up sectional play Saturday night, beating Copenhagen 61-49 in the first round of the Class D tourney. The #2 seeded Marauders were led by Cody Mariotti's 20 points and six rebounds, while Nick Comenale added 18 points.
The Gold Knights hung tough with the Marauders, coming back from a 22-6 deficit in the second quarter to pull within 11 at the half, 31-20.
