GLOVERSVILLE -- From the start of the Fonda-Fultonville Braves' 70-50 loss to the Gloversville Dragons, F-F head coach Eric Wilson was not a happy camper.

Lacking enthusiasm, the Braves found themselves down eight points a couple minutes into the contest -- part of the Gloversville Holiday Tournament -- and never mounted a serious challenge to the home team.

"We just weren't ready to go, plain and simple. We were a step slow. When (Gloversville) guys can get the ball and dribble the length of the court and we do nothing to cut them off or get someone help-side to cut them off ..." Wilson said, trailing off at the end.

"Right from the get, we were a step slow," he finished.

For Gloversville (3-3), Corin Smith led the way with 15 points, while Hunter Goodwin and Kevin Johnston each added 11.

Meanwhile, no F-F (3-4) player reached double figures. Ryan Derby and Mace Madore each had nine points, but star scorer Will Turner -- who had averaged 30.7 points per game in his last three contests -- was held to six.

"Gloversville did a good job (on Turner).They -- physically -- just beat on him," said Wilson. "They, physically, knocked him around and beat on him."

In the contest, Turner had just one field goal.

"When we did do some good things, we didn't do a good job of getting him the ball," said Wilson. "There was times when he was open and we were a step slow getting him the ball."

Turner, along with several other F-F starters, watched the fourth quarter from the bench, as the team will play Amsterdam today in the consolation game of the tournament. Gloversville will take on Mekeel Christian Academy.

Also for F-F, Zac Nowak had five points and eight rebounds.

Wilson said he thinks his team can make the quick turnaround from Friday night's game. The key, he said, will be for the Braves to show more fire at today at the start.

"We need to be ready to play," Wilson said.
