Bayport-Blue Point’s Dylan Craig had the ball in his hands with less than 10 seconds left in the third quarter. As he drifted to his right, two Glenn defenders stepped up to prevent the shot, with a third right behind them.

None of that mattered as Craig still got the shot off, falling to the floor as the ball fell through the net for a buzzer-beating three-pointer.

That was only the third quarter, but it felt as close to an emotional dagger as it got as No. 4 Bayport-Blue Point went on to beat No. 1 Glenn, 68-54, in the Suffolk A semifinal on Tuesday at Patchogue-Medford.

Bayport-Blue Point (18-4) will face No. 2 Southampton (18-4) at noon Saturday at Longwood in the Suffolk A championship game. The teams split their two games in the regular season.

“We worked for this, and now we’re getting the results,” Craig said. “We got one more to take care of. It’s not over.”

With Phantoms fans shirtless in the stands, covered in blue paint donning the names and numbers of the school’s players, it was a memorable moment in a dominant game by Bayport-Blue Point, which is now one game away from its first Suffolk A title since 2015. Craig hit four three-pointers and finished with 20 points.

“When we’re making threes, we’re tough to beat,” coach Charlie Peck said.

It felt like no one was left out as Bayport-Blue Point had several standouts. Senior guard Robby Maurer had 20 points, hitting eight free throws in the fourth quarter to help the Phantoms stay ahead. Fellow senior guard Brendan Waters scored eight points and drew back-to-back charges, which led Glenn’s top scorer, Joey Mammolito, to foul out early in the fourth quarter with just 11 points.

Peck said he specifically kept one person in the lane to try and draw charges or at least contest against Mammolito, who averages 18 points.

Bayport-Blue Point’s Michael Luce was also impossible to miss, using his 6-4 frame to muscle his way to 12 points and 11 rebounds. Glenn has scored 60 or more points in 14 of its games this season, but was held to just 28 points through the first three quarters.

“Mike calls out defensive signals,” Peck said. “He wasn’t guarding anybody. He was in the lane making sure [Mammolito] didn’t get to the basket.”

Sophomore guard Jason Mascia led Glenn with 21 points and senior guard Paul Febbraro had 13 points, all in the fourth quarter, as the Knights ended the season with a 17-4 record.
