It was a remarkable championship encounter, a masterpiece of a basketball game, a contest staged between two worthy opponents, a game contested like every championship match should be played. The environment was electric with large and passionate crowds totally involved in the game representing both combatants. In the end, just about everything in New York State’s Class D Girls’ Basketball Championship game was perfect. That is, except the final score, Heuvelton 61, South Kortright 54.
