Calhoun's Tom Murphy, left, works around Freeport's Moses Fletcher during last Saturday's Nassau Class AA playoff game.

Murphy led the Colts with 14 points, while senior Kyle McGinley had 13 and Downey added 11.

Freeport appeared to pull away for good in the third quarter after its top scorer, senior Kyhiem Chaplin, drained three-pointers on consecutive possessions from the same spot on the floor followed by a layup from senior Davelle Hooks that opened up a 40-30 bulge. Held under wraps by the Colts for much of the first half, Chaplin scored 14 of his game-high 19 points in the third and fourth quarters.

“He’s done it all year long,” DeBonis said of Chaplin, who also added five rebounds, a pair of steals and five free throws. “He’s been a quality player for us, and as he goes we go. It was a big game, and he made big plays.”

“They hit their threes at a point where it mattered,” Kreutzberger said.
