Wasaren Girls; Bengals, Panthers Post Easy Wins



Rick Lyons Staff Writer:  A full slate of action for the girls in the Wasaren Wednesday night produced no buzzer-beaters or late game heroics.  In fact  three of the four contests were decided before the final quarter played out.

Tamarac and Hoosick Falls both won handily and remain tied at the top of the league standings as the race for the Wasaren crown round’s the first turn.

Tamarac 61  Mechanicville 27

Leading Scorers:  Bengals – Hannah Krieger 16     Red Raiders – Julia Amedeo 9

Key Stat:  Tamarac won every quarter and hung 35 on the board in the second half.

Take Away:  The Bengals had 10 players score in running over the Raiders to their third league win in as many tries.  They’re skilled and deep, and that will be tested Friday night when they travel to Schaghticoke to take on the Valley.


Hoosick Falls 47  Cambridge 22

Leading Scorers:  Panthers – Megan Flynn 19    Indians – Bridley Nolan 9

Key Stat:  Hoosick Falls held the Indians to single digits in every quarter and led by 22 heading to the final eight minutes.

Take Away: The Falls have two legitimate scorers in Flynn and Kelly Pine, can shut you down defensively, and continue to cruise in the early going.


Stillwater 44  Granville 33:

Leading Scorers:  Warriors – Londyn Mitchell 13   Abby Higgins – 11    Golden Horde – Gabby Hunt 18

Key Stat:  Stillwater jumped out to a 19-5 advantage after one, increased that margin to 40-17 after three, and coasted to their second conference “W” on the year.

Take Away:  Stillwater sits in a three-way tie for second in the league standings and hosts league leader Hoosick Falls on Friday.


Hoosic Valley 47  Greenwich 32

Leading Scorers:  Valley – Cami Hren 12    Witches – Gabrielle VanDeWater 10

Key Stat:  The Valley exploded for a 21 point final quarter breaking open a close game and posted the well-earned “W” over the Witches who trailed 26-24 entering the final period.

Take Away:  Nice to see the Valley’s attack gear up with their best offensive quarter of the season.  They’ll need that offense and their ability to guard when Tamarac visits on Friday.
