Wasaren Teams Roll on a Sectional Saturday


The Section II girls basketball tournament played its Round of 16 in the B and C classifications Saturday night with seven Wasaren teams taking the floor.  Yesterday we asked the question “Could the Wasaren teams sweep?”.  The answer this Sunday morning is almost.  The league squads posted six “W’s” in dominant fashion, with all six handling their business on their home floor.

Class B

Tamarac 45  Broadalbin-Perth 22

Leading Scorers:  Bengals – Syrita Faraj 13         Emily Erickson 10         Kate Machnick  B-P – Emma Goebel 10

Key Stat:  Tamarac throws a shutout in the first period, and allows BP just eight points through three quarters, as the Bengals double up Perth and advance to a Wednesday night quarterfinal and a matchup in Clums Corners with Hudson.


Mechanicville 64  Glens Falls 34

Leading Scorers:  Red Raiders – Jada Brown 20        Amy DiSiena 10            Falls – Felicity Williams 18        Anna Bayle 10

Key Stat:  The Raiders won every quarter, built a 34-18 lead at the half and saw nine players score in cruising to the victory over Glens Falls.  Mechanicville stays home for their quarterfinal game, taking on Ichabod Crane in a Wednesday night run.


Class C

Cambridge 66  Canajoharie 30

Leading Scorers:  Indians – Lily Phillips 27       Sophie Phillips 22            Canjo – Monica Hartleib 7

Key Stat:  Cambridge hands Canjo 26 first quarter points and follows with 23 more in the second frame to lead 49-10 at the break, on their way to the one-sided decision setting up a Wednesday night quarterfinal in Cambridge with the Indians playing host to Greenwich.


Greenwich 51  Duanesburg 32

Leading Scorers:  Witches – Molly Brophy 18       Tess Merrill 13        Kylee Masse 10  Duanesburg – Madison Meyer 18

Key Stat:  The Witches held Canajoharie to single digits in each of the final three periods, and put three players in doubles leading Greenwich to the comfortable “W” and their Wednesday night get-together with Cambridge.


Hoosick Falls 65  Middleburgh 48

Leading Scorers:  Panthers – Logan Thayne 32          Middleburgh – Kelsey Terrell 20        Halle Gasner 11

Key Stat:  The Falls built a 31-8 advantage at the break and Thayne posts another monster game with 32 points, including 10 of 11 from the stripe, and 17 boards leading the Panthers to the win and a quarterfinal matchup with the Indians of Hoosic Valley, Wednesday night in Schaghticoke.


Hoosic Valley 55  Schoharie 21

Leading Scorers:  Indians – Sami Dickinson 17       Alex Rifenburg 14             Schoharie – Julie Lehoe 12
