Syosset Braves Top East Meadow
The Braves hosted the East Meadow Jets for their sixth game of their season. Syosset did not have their scoring leader Stu Coleman for the game, but they still played aggressively against the Jets and won the game 65-60, placing them at a 3-3 season record. The Braves almost had their most dominant performance of the season by maintaining the lead for the entire game, but they allowed East Meadow , who was led by Ryan Kent's 25 points, to rally in the fourth quarter and only led by one point with 1:45 remaining. Due to their tenacious defense, and senior Jason Parasco's two free throw's in the final seconds, the Braves were able to add another victory to their season.
