Girls Basketball; Witches Post Victory


A trio of Wasaren girls squads played in non-league runs on Thursday night with the Witches of Greenwich opening their season in impressive fashion.

Greenwich 72  Galway 27

Leading Scorers:  Witches – Molly Brophy 34       Marquita Gutasy 13       Tess Merrill 10    Galway – Beth Rapapi 9

Key Stat:  Greenwich backed a 15-3 first period with a 16-6 advantage in the second, taking a 22 point cushion into the break and coasted to the season-opening win from there.

Take Away:  Brophy hands Galway 34 leading a Witches attack that puts 72 points on the board their first time out.  While Wasaren competition will be stronger, Greenwich will be a handful for anyone.   


Ballston Spa 52  Stillwater 45

Leading Scorers:  Spa – Sierra Delany 16         Ana Gold 10         Warriors – Marley Mueller 13          Brooke Pickett 10

Key Stat:  A 17-7 second quarter gave Ballston Spa an eight point lead at the half, enough to hold off the Warriors for the win.

Take Away:  Stillwater is still looking for that first win at 0-3 and will chase it tonight when they host the Indians of Hoosic Valley.


North Warren 54  Saratoga Catholic 34

Leading Scorers:  Cougars – Sydney Gagnon 15       Emma Phillips 11          Saints – Ryleigh O’Connell 7

Key Stat:  The lines were good to the Cougars where they held a 4-1 advantage form three point range, and a 12-3 edge at the charity stripe.

Take Away:  The Saints are also pursuing that elusive first win with their next chance a week away when they’ll face Mechanicville in Saratoga.
