JOHNSTOWN — No matter how many three-pointers Voorheesville missed on Wednesday night — and it was many — the players were unfazed as they kept pulling the trigger from behind the arc.

And with 29 seconds remaining in the Class B first-round playoff at Johnstown, Emily Blow gave Voorheesville the three-pointer it had been waiting for all night. Then, with eight seconds left, Blow floated a shot down the lane for the game-winner.

“We couldn’t let that get to us,” Blow said of all the missed three-pointers after Voorheesville upset Johnstown, 58 to 56.


Roger had no family and yet he was cared for because he was caring. He said he did not want to die alone, in the dark. The nurse who was with him said, "We all love you." That, to us, is the sign of a life well lived.
