Girls Sectional Quarterfinals; Four Wasaren Teams Advance


Six league teams played quarterfinal games in the girls Section II basketball tournament Wednesday night with action in the B and C classifications.  At the end of the night four Wasaren schools posted victories, advancing to the semifinal round.

Class B

Tamarac 52  Hudson 47

Leading Scorers:  Bengals – Emily Erickson 13        Jordyn Sorel 11        Alexis D’Agostino 9 Blue Hawks – Deja Beauford 14

Key Stat:  In a close game throughout the top seeded Bengals took a 39-33 lead into the fourth and hung on to notch the “”W” over a determined Hudson squad.  Nine players scored for Tamarac as the Bengals paraded to the free throw line attempting 33 from the stripe converting on 14.  With the win Tamarac moves to the semifinal round where they’ll face Fonda at Averill Park on Tuesday at 7:30.


Mechanicville 57  Ichabod Crane 37

Leading Scorers:  Red Raiders – Amy DiSiena 14      Charli Goverski 13       AJ Joseph 10   Jada Brown 10         Taylor Grayson 9           Crane – Riley Paul 14

Key Stat:  Whatever Coach Goverski said to his team at halftime was just what the doctor ordered.  The Raiders held a slim 20-19 advantage heading into the break, but returned to the floor and blitzed the Riders with a 27-2 third period to take control, on their way to the quarterfinal victory.  Mechanicville, who nearly put all five starters in doubles, will advance and meet Mekeel Christian in Averill Park on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the Class B semi’s.


Class C

Cambridge 69  Greenwich 50

Leading Scorers:  Indians – Lily Phillips 23      Sophie Phillips 21       Stasia Epler 11   Witches – Tess Merrill 20        Molly Brophy 16

Key Stat:  The top seeded Indians started with a 19-6 first period and led 35-17 at the break, coasting to the quarterfinal “W” over Greenwich.  Cambridge moves to the semifinal round and a meeting with #4 Warrensburg at Colonie High School on Tuesday at 7:30.


Hoosick Falls 49  Hoosic Valley 36

Leading Scorers:  Panthers – Logan Thayne 18       Grace Wysocki 12      Madeline Walker 12         Indians – Renee Serafin 13

Key Stat:  Typically when a team fails to score a point in the first period, at night’s end they aren’t celebrating a win, but Hoosick Falls managed to do just that in Schaghticoke  Wednesday night.  Trailing 14-0 after the first eight minutes, the Panthers trimmed the deficit to 21-13 at the half, took a 31-28 lead after three and put things away in the final frame to post the come-from-behind- victory over the Valley in their Class C quarterfinal. The #6 seeded Panthers move on to face #3 Maple Hill on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Colonie High School.
