ROTTERDAM – Undefeated Schalmont completed a season sweep of crosstown rival Mohonasen with a 60-49 victory Thursday, Jan. 31, in a Colonial Council boys basketball game at Mohonasen High School.

The Sabres weathered an early storm from the Mighty Warriors to take a 13-11 lead at the end of the first quarter, and then went on a 9-0 run to begin the second quarter to break the game open. By halftime, Schalmont led 32-18.

Mohonasen made several attempts to get back into the contest in the second half, but Schalmont hit several key shots down the stretch to maintain a comfortable margin over the Mighty Warriors.
