MONTICELLO - Even without Monticello's resident sparkplug on the court, the Ponies found a way to electrify the crowd. With Tyler Ritschard on the bench with foul trouble in the fourth quarter, Corey McGowan and Lukas Kolasch brought the stands to their feet. The pair distributed the ball to each other to the tune of five 3-pointers in the second half as Monticello outscored Barneveld by 15 points in the final frame en route to a 61-50 victory and a share of the Six Rivers East title.
