Milford brought back the Anton Remy Tournament, but the Wildcats will have to wait at least another year for a Remy title. Those honors went to the Cherry Valley-Springfield boys and the Franklin girls on Saturday.
Tournament MVP Jordan Beers of Franklin scored 31 points to lead to Purple Devils to a 49-39 victory of Milford in the girls finals.
Addy Lawson scored 19 points to lead the Wildcats.
In the boys final, Patriots Kyle Jaquay and Isiah Montgomery were co-MVPs, scoring 40 of CV-S’ 47 points to beat Milford, 47-42.
“I think our league is going to be very competitive on our side,” Milford coach Frank Spurchise said of his team’s first of three battles with CV-S this year. “Especially, us, CV-S, Richfield and Schenevus. It is going to be a fun year from that standpoint, a fun year for the Tri-Valley.”
Milford trailed 16-4 after one quarter but evened the game just after halftime and had a lead in the fourth quarter.
Jaquay had 22 points—including making eight of 10 free throws in the final quarter — and Montgomery added 18 points for CV-S (2-0).
Peyton Griffiths scored 17 points for Milford (1-1, 1-0) a day after scoring 14 to lead the Wildcats over Franklin, 43-26, in a first-round game that also counted in the Tri-Valley standings.
“He scored the first eight points of the game,” Spurchise said. “He got us started on a good note.”
Griffiths and Paul VanWarner made the All Tournament team for Milford along with Spencer Hinkley of Roxbury and Alex Brownell of Franklin.
CV-S beat Roxbury in the opening game of the tournament on Thursday, 45-35. Jaquay and Montgomery scored 15 points each.
Franklin beat Roxbury in the consolation game on Saturday, 35-25. Brownell scored 20 points for Franklin (1-1, 0-1).
In the girls tournament, both the Cats and Devils beat the CV-S girls in opening round games. The girls tournament was a three-team round robin.
