Local roundup: Riegal's trey lifts Monument Mountain to win over Hoosac Valley

Posted

GREAT BARRINGTON — David Riegal's 3-pointer with three seconds left in the game gave the Monument Mountain boys basketball team to a 57-56 win over Hoosac Valley on Tuesday.

The game was close throughout with several lead changes. In the fourth quarter, both coaches used timeouts to draw up plays for the late-game situations.

Ultimately, Riegal received the ball off dribble penetration and the junior made the winning shot.

Jameson Coughlan led Hoosac (4-5) with 29 points. Matt Koperniak added 14 points.

Conor Prince led Monument (5-5) with 12 points, including three 3-pointers. Joe Aberdale and Jordan Piepho had nine points each.

"It was hard-fought game both ways," Monument coach Mike Saporito said. "It was nice to get a bounce down the stretch. We shared the ball well and created shots for each other. We played well tonight and we're fortunate to come out on top."
