A good number of Wasaren teams have enjoyed successful basketball seasons this year, while playing a different type of schedule with most teams having the opportunity to face opponents they typically would not when playing a Wasaren schedule. Two of those squads were in action on Wednesday and both the Cambridge girls and the Hoosic Valley boys stayed hot, capturing wins.
Cambridge 62 Hudson Falls 18
Leading Scorers: Indians – Sophie Phillips 13 Lilly Phillips 12 Stasia Epler 10 Tigers – Emma Rose 8
The talented Cambridge squad has rolled through most of their nine games thus far with little difficulty, as was the case in Hudson Falls Wednesday night where the Indians ran out to a 23-3 lead after the first period and cruised from there to the one-sided “W”. Cambridge placed three players in doubles with eight Indians scoring points on the night as Cambridge, with the win, remains undefeated with two contests remaining on the year.
Hoosic Valley 47 Rensselaer 39
Leading Scorers: Valley – Logan Reilly 20 Tyler Eddy 17 Rams – Romell Johnson 15
Hoosic Valley built a 29-13 lead by the break and rode that cushion to the home victory over the Rams in Schaghticoke Wednesday night. After starting the season 1-4, the Indians have been on a roll with last night’s “W” being their sixth straight. Sophomores, Reilly and Eddy combined for 37 points in the run, and both started quickly teaming up for 19 of the Valley’s 21 first period points, a quarter that ended with a 20-7 Indian advantage.
Mechanicville 70 Stillwater 59 – Tuesday Night
Leading Scorers: Red Raiders – Luciano D’Ambro 24 Devin Garland 11 Colin Richardson 11 Warriors – Lukas Lilac 14 Tyler Paffen 12 Jacob Zecca 10
On Senior Night in Stillwater a back and forth first half ended with Mechanicville holding a slim 31-30 lead, but the visiting Raiders slowly pulled away over the final two periods and notched the win over their neighboring rival on Tuesday night. D’Ambro’s 24 points led a trio of Raiders in double figures for the 11-1 Mechanicville squad. Stillwater ( 6-6 ) also posted three players in double figures with Lilac’s 14 points leading the way for the Warriors.
