It’s a girls basketball night in the league with some interesting early season contests as teams begin the gauntlet run through the always competitive Wasaren.
Stillwater/Mechanicville: The Warriors come in at 2-1, 0-1 losing to Hoosick Falls on Friday, while the Red Raiders enter with a 2-1, 1-0 mark, smoking Saratoga Catholic their last time out.
Sammy Pasinella is scoring 20.7 per and Amanda Kenyon adds 9.7 for the Raiders who put 68 on the board against the Saints. Danika Svendsen leads the Stillwater attack scoring 14 points nightly.
Waterford/Hoosic Valley: The Fordians were welcomed to the league by Greenwich Friday night with a 70-25 demolition. Waterford is lead in scoring by Hannah Canfield’s 6.5 points per, as Waterford has struggled to score the ball not yet reaching the 30 point mark in two games.
Hoosic Valley is 1-2, 0-1 falling to Tamarac their last time out. Becky Keasbey, Alex Rifenburg, and Cami Wren combine for 25 points per game, but the Valley’s bread and butter is their suffocating man defense and tonight the Fordians may not score 20.
Cambridge/Greenwich: The Indians step on the floor for the first time this season and have quality veteran players in Lynn Brownell, Helen Mooney, Victoria Dupius, and Bridley Nolan.
Greenwich enters at 2-0 having put 70 points on the board in both contests. Molly Brophy at 18 points per, Olivia Barnes 12, Emma Brophy 11, and Sabrina Whitehouse at 9 points lead a Witches attack that can score in bunches.
Tamarac/Hoosick Falls: Both squads have played just one time, the Bengals defeating the Valley, and the Falls getting past Stillwater in games played Friday night.
Emily Erickson with 16 points and Hannah Kreiger with 14 led Tamarac in their 50-37 win over Hoosic Valley.
Sidney Miller’s 12 and Kelly Pine’s 10 paced the Panthers attack in the 43-31 victory over the Warriors.
My picks: Mechanicville, Hoosic Valley, Greenwich, Tamarac
