Bridgehampton beat Stony Brook 54-36 in the county Class C-D championship game at William Floyd High School on Saturday afternoon.
The Bees may have gone into the game a little overconfident, according to their coach, Carl Johnson, because two of Stony Brook's best players were benched, including the point guard, who sat out with an injury. Nevertheless, Stony Brook kept up with Bridgehampton in the first half, waiting until the last few seconds on the clock during each possession to get off a shot. The Bees led 19-14 at the half.
