Mechanicville trailed 22-14 late in the second period but finished the quarter with five quick points,  the start of an extended run that continued with 12 straight points after the break giving the Raiders control at 31-22, on their way to the Class B title before a huge crowd at HVCC on Saturday afternoon.

Mechanicville shot 10 of 13 from the floor in the decisive third frame and clamped down defensively on the potent Braves attack that was averaging 55 points in their three sectional games.

The Raiders put nine players in the scoring column with three reaching doubles.  Tournament MVP Amy DiSiena scored all 14 of her points in the second half for  Mechanicville who will carry a 16-7 mark into regional play this week.

Congratulations to the Red Raiders.
