Friday Night Hoops


A handful of league teams ran the floor on Friday night, the majority playing non-league opponents with the Wasaren schedule set to begin next week.


Cambridge 73  S.S. Seward 46

Leading Scorers:  Indians – Lily Phillips 23      Sophie Phillips 17      Fiona Mooney 13     Seward – Alexa Roach 17     Josely Medina 13

Key Stat:  How about a 31 point quarter in your season-opener.  Back that with an 18 point second period and Cambridge has half a hundred on the board at the half.  Lily Phillips knocks down five triples and 23 points before the break, all leading to Cambridge facing Cooperstown this afternoon in the championship game of the Delaware Academy Tip-Off Tournament.

Take Away:  The Indians are a young squad with three sophomores in the starting lineup. That trio combined for 53 points and 10 made threes, and this team as the season unfolds will only get better.  


Hoosic Valley 39  Stillwater 25

Leading Scorers:  Indians – Sami Dickinson 16      Alex Rifenburg 10       Warriors – Montana Marinello 7

Key Stat:  The Valley holds Stillwater to 16 points through three periods and single digits in every frame.

Take Away:  Hoosic Valley wins two of it’s first three to start the season, both over Stillwater, while the Warriors at 0-4 continue to hunt for their first victory.



Waterford 75  Bishop Maginn 45

Leading Scorers:  Fordians – Bobby Valigorski 22      Mike Talavera 19      Mike Castracani 15        Maginn – Anthony Davis 10

Key Stat:  Waterford won every quarter and used a 24-13 advantage in the second, fueled by Valigorski’s 12 points, to open things up.

Take Away:  The Fordians put three players in high doubles and that will serve them well entering league play.


Greenwich 49  Hadley Luzerne 42

Leading Scorers:  Witches – Jesse Kuzmich 15     Sam Howard 10      Eagles – Danny McMahon 23

Key Stat:  Greenwich used a 16-6 final period to notch the come-from-behind “W” over Luzerne.

Take Away:  The Witches nearly put four players in doubles with John Walsh scoring nine points and Carson Mosher eight.  Add in Kuzmich with 15 and Howard’s 10 and Greenwich shows nice balance in their season-opener.
