More Recap: Peltz remains hard to touch, Kings remain in the hunt

Charlie Peltz remains hard to touch as the Queensbury Spartans rolled past the Troy Flying Horses on Tuesday.  Peltz, coming off a one-hitter that ended his streak of three straight no-hitters, allowed only three hits as the Queensbury Spartans move onto the next round after their 2-0 win.

Meanwhile, the Argyle Scots, on the brink of elimination, fired two runs in the bottom of the 7th inning to force extra innings in their game against Germantown.  After both teams fail to score in the 8th, Germantown punched their ticket into today's Sectional Semifinal with a 10-run ninth inning.  The Scots had no real answer, and fell in 9 innings 18-9.

According to The Post-Star's Pete Tobey, Argyle was missing their top two starting hurlers as they were out of town for the holiday weekend, resulting in the Scots going with their #3, Vikki Genovese.

And the Kings continue their Stanley Cup defense after winning Game 7 at the Staples Center.  Jonathan Quick needed some amazing saves, including this extended grab with just over 5 minutes left, as the Los Angeles Kings win their way to the Western Conference Finals 3-2 over the San Jose Sharks.  Justin Williams scored both goals for the Kings, the first coming on the power play early in the 2nd Period, then followed up with his second four minutes later.

The Kings will face either the Chicago Blackhawks or the Detroit Red Wings in the Conference Finals.  Chicago and Detroit will settle who'll play the Los Angeles Kings in their Game 7 tonight at the United Center in Chicago.

Finally, LeBron James fouls out as the Indiana Pacers ties the series after their 99-92 win last night.  James scored 24 points for the Miami Heat, and Mario Chalmers scored 20.  Roy Hibbert had a double-double with 23 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacers.

Game 5 is tomorrow night.

Finally, North Country Sports Radio would like to wish our local athletes the best of luck as they compete in Sectionals (Baseball/Softball) and Regionals (Lacrosse).  We'd love to report soon on your team winning, so if you're a coach or a player, let us know how your team fared!
