Girls Basketball; Valley Tops Greenwich


The four Wasaren runs Tuesday night resulted in three one-sided affairs, while Hoosic Valley and Greenwich played to a five point decision.

Hoosic Valley 40  Greenwich 35:  In a defensive battle between a pair of unbeaten squads in league play, the Valley used a 12-5 third period advantage to gain control, on their way to the victory over the Witches.

The Indians held a 17-16 lead at halftime, before building an eight point cushion through the third, and hung on for the home “W”.

The Valley put five players in the scoring column, all dropping between seven and 10 points with Ashley Madigan’s 10 leading the way.

Greenwich was led by Olivia Barnes who tallied a game-high 19 points.

Looking ahead, the Witches will host the Panthers of Hoosick Falls on Friday, while Hoosic Valley has an open Friday night.



Hoosick Falls 49  Cambridge 33:  The Panthers out scored Cambridge 29-12 over the middle two quarters in notching the win over the Indians.

Ally Burdick led the Falls with 10 points as the Panthers won their fourth of the season in as many outings.

Helen Mooney with 15 points paced the Indian offense, as Cambridge drops to 0-3 with the loss.

The Indians will look for that initial “W” on Friday in a home contest with Mechanicville, while the Falls travels to Greenwich to take on the Witches.


Tamarac 64  Saratoga Catholic 32:  The Bengals built a 23-8 cushion after one, on their way to doubling up the Saints and posting the easy road win.

Renna Poulin with 16 points, and Emily Erickson with 13 led Tamarac who improves to 3-1 on the year and will look for win number four on Friday when they host Stillwater.

Emma VanDeCarr and Kristin Mahar scored 11 and 10 points respectively for the 0-3, 2-4 Saints, who travel to Waterford on Friday to take on the Fordians.


Mechanicville 66  Waterford 21:  It was all Red Raiders as Mechanicville won every quarter in cruising to the victory over the Fordians.

Ten players scored for the Raiders with Sammy Pasinella’s 17 points, and Julie Amedeo’s 10 leading the way for the 3-1, 4-2 Mechanicville squad.  Next up for the Raiders is an away run on Friday night in Cambridge.

Hannah Canfield with 11 points paced the Fordians who fall to 0-4, 0-5, but will look to put a number in the win column on Friday when they host the Saints from Saratoga Catholic.
