Southampton Falls to Babylon in Class B Basketball Championship

The Panthers defeat the Mariners, 82-57, for Babylon's first title in 25 years.

The Southampton Mariners boys varsity basketball team fell short Wednesday in the Suffolk County Class B final.

The number-one ranked Panthers routed the number-two ranked Mariners by a score of 82-57 in front of a packed house at Patchogue-Medford High School on Wednesday night, becoming the Class B champions for the first time in 25 years.

The Panthers will move on to play the Nassau County Class B champs on March 5, but will face the C-D winner, the Bridgehampton Killer Bees (7-5, 10-6), for the B-C-D playoff game in Longwood on Saturday at noon.

The winner of that will face either Amityville or Harborfields for the Small School Championship and a shot at the Section XI title.
