The finale’ season of Mohawk’s last-ever boys basketball team came to an exciting close on Sunday at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse at the Section III Class C Final.  Despite trailing Beaver River by as much as 17 in the fourth period, Mohawk, led by Carson Murphy, was able to bring it down to one possession at the buzzer.   With just a second remaining and Mohawk down by three, Murphy’s half-court shot fell short and Beaver River held on to eliminate the Mohicans by a score of 68-65.

It was the last ever appearance for Mohawk’s Basketball team as the school will cease to exist starting on July 1st when a new merged district is created with nearby Ilion High School.

Carson Murphy, Mohawk’s all-time leading scorer, had 25 points in the second half alone, and finished up with 38 points and 12 rebounds overall.

The big difference in the game came outside the perimeter as Beaver River scored 10 out 21 shots from 3-point range.  Beaver River’s trip to the State Tournament is their first since 1979.
