Last week we talked about the girls race in the Wasaren and pointed out there seemed to be a distinctive first and second tier in the league with four teams in each. That scenario played out Wednesday night as the top four squads, the Falls, Cambridge, Tamarac and the Valley all secured wins.
Cambridge 58 Mechanicville 37
Leading Scorers: Indians – Lynn Brownell 18 Bridley Nolan 15 Helen Mooney 11 Red Raiders – Julie Amedeo 11 Madison Harrington 10
Key Stat: Trailing 17-11 after the first eight minutes, the Indians out scored the Raiders 47-20 the rest of the way holding their hosts to single digits in each quarter.
Take Away: Cambridge is for real with a nice balance of scoring, and the ability to guard. The Valley’s next in a big one for both teams on Friday.
Tamarac 46 Stillwater 32
Leading Scorers: Bengals – Hannah Kreiger 10 Cassidy Medved 10 Warriors – Abby Higgins 11
Key Stat: The Bengals led by eight at the half but used a 12-2 third period to put this one away.
Take Away: Tamarac looked to have all their players back in the lineup on Wednesday, and when they’re at full strength they can play with anyone.
Hoosic Valley 62 Granville 27
Leading Scorers: Valley – Emily Norman 16 Becky Keasby 10 Golden Horde – Alexis Smith 12
Key Stat: In typical Valley fashion the Indians held Granville to 17 total point over the last three quarters as they improved to 4-2 in league play.
Take Away: Hoosic Valley placed nine in the scorebook, with two players in doubles. If the Indians get that offense rolling look out.
Hoosick Falls 50 Greenwich 42
Leading Scorers: Falls – Kelly Pine 15 Megan Flynn 11 Eliza Whitman 10 Witches – Isabelle Kuzmich 13 Gabbie VanDeWater 11
Key Stat: A 14-8 first period advantage for the Panthers gave them a cushion they needed every bit of as the two squads were virtually even the rest of the way.
Take Away: The Falls stay perfect in Wasaren play at 6-0 but will be tested by Tamarac on Friday.
