The top-seeded Eagles put together an impressive first-round performance against Rye on Sunday, burying the Eagles with a barrage of points to send the Garnets packing. Eastchester was led by a scoring outburst from Nick Campana, who tallied 23 points in the win, but Campana was hardly alone as guard Jack Daly had 20 points of his own.

With the win, the Eagles advance to the second round, where they will take on Byram Hills, who escaped with a 38-37 win over Sleepy Hollow on Feb. 17. Byram has some size in 6-foot-7 Andrew Groll, but the Eagles–who are used to giving up height to opposing teams–should be able to implement their up-tempo offense to great success against a Bobcats team looking to reach the County Center.

Charlie Tarry’s 13 points weren’t enough to get 12th-seeded Bronxville over the hump against the Tigers on Sunday, as the fifth-seeded Croton squad was able to advance to the quarterfinals, where it will take on Putnam Valley.

Peter Dinger was the game-changer for Croton as he notched 19 points to go along with six rebounds and six assists to lead the way for the favorites. Bronxville’s young squad was in the game until the very end, though, and this should bode well for a team that returns the vast majority of its players for the 2014-15 season.

2/16 Nanuet d. Eastchester 52-37

In a Class A outbracket game, Eastchester was unable to extend its season, falling to a tough 18th-seeded Nanuet squad 52-37. The Golden Eagles got big time performances from Alana Propasio and Alexandra Amalbert, who combined for 25 points on the afternoon, sending Nanuet into first-round action, where it was defeated by second-seeded Albertus Magnus.
