Rakkir Watson (12) gets a congratulatory hug from Jarrett Madison after his layup with 2:41 left gave his 1,000 points for his career.

Bittersweet night for Watson

Contributed Story
FLORIDA — March 5, 2013 – Fallsburg senior Rakkir Watson scored his 1,000th career point during a 72-37 loss to S.S. Seward last Wednesday in a Section IX–Class C semifinal.
It came on a layup with 2:41 left in the game and the contest was stopped so Watson could be recognized with a ball presentation.
He scored one more bucket to finish with 14 for the night to lead the fourth-seeded Comets (13–7). He finished with 1,002 points for his high school career.
“It was just their night, for sure,” Comets’ coach Peter Dworetsky said of the host Spartans, who wound up losing to Pine Plains in the Class C final two days later. “Their shooting percentage was high and they were a real big, physical team. They played great defense. We rely on slashing to the hoop, and with their size we just could not get inside.”
“We had a lot to be proud of, considering we lost 11 seniors from last year,” Dworetsky summed up the season.
