Last night it was a coin flip as to which game I’d go to see, Stillwater/Hoosick Falls boys, or Tamarac/Hoosic Valley girls. It turns out either would have been the right call. Both games had big implications in the league title chase, and both contests were overtime decisions, with the Valley putting away the Bengals 55-46 in OT to stay just one game behind front running Hoosick Falls in the race for the Wasaren crown.
Here’s a look at all the girls results from a Friday night in the league.
Hoosic Valley 55 Tamarac 46 OT
Leading Scorers: Valley – Kate Kennelly 18 Bengals – Emily Erickson 14
Key Stat: Hoosic Valley held the Bengals to single digits in each of the first three quarters, and led 32-23 heading to the final frame. Tamarac used a 16-7 fourth to send the game into extra minutes, and ironically the Valley out scored their hosts by the same 16-7 margin in the overtime.
Records: Hoosic Valley 9-2, 13-2 Tamarac 8-3, 9-5
Cambridge 50 Greenwich 46
Leading Scorers: Indians – Helen Mooney 18 Lynn Brownell 10 Olivia Mooney 10 Witches – Olivia Barnes 24
Key Stat: A close game throughout, Cambridge out scored the Witches 9-2 over the final 1:38 to post the victory.
Records: Cambridge 7-4, 11-5 Greenwich 2-9, 7-9
Hoosick Falls 57 Stillwater 27
Leading Scorers: Falls – Megan Flynn 18 Kelly Pine 12 Warriors – Abby Higgins 18
Key Stat: The Panthers defense shut down the Stillwater attack allowing just three Warriors into the scorebook, and threw a shutout defensively in the third period.
Records: Hoosick Falls 10-1, 14-2 Stillwater 5-6, 7-9
Mechanicville 68 Granville 24
Leading Scorers: Red Raiders – Julia Amodeo 16 Sammy Pasinella 16 Horde – Brooke Perry 8
Key Stat: The Raiders put double figures on the board in every period while holding the Horde to single numbers in each frame, which led to an easy “W” for the visitors from Mechanicville.
Records: Mechanicville 3-8, 4-9 Granville 0-11, 3-12
