S-E 58, Cooperstown 52
Nicole Cring finished with 20 points, nine rebounds and four blocks, but state-ranked Cooperstown dropped a non-league game at Sherburne-Earlville.
“We were up by seven with 3:49 to go and we didn’t score again,” said coach Mike Niles, whose Redskins entered the game as the state’s 14th-ranked team in Class C. “We turned it over a lot and that was that.”
Mattie Dowdall scored the go-ahead points on a layup with 1:33 remaining, giving the Marauders (8-2) a 53-51 lead. Niles said Jordan Van Althuis secured the victory for S-E by hitting two free throws with about 20 seconds left.
Sumer Murdock contributed 14 points and Elizabeth Millea had 10 points and five steals for the Redskins (7-2), who were outscored, 17-5, in the fourth quarter.
CV-S 38, Worcester 24
Maddie Archer scored nine of her game high 14 points in the fourth quarter as host Cherry Valley-Springfield pulled away in the Tri-Valley League.
The Patriots closed on a 17-4 run.
“We came out with a little more intensity on defense in the fourth quarter and executed on the offensive end,” CV-S coach Terry Dubben said.
Jamie Thompson had seven points to lead Worcester.
Schenevus 56, Milford 53
Sierra Bentley, Sarah Mellor and Taylor Spranger scored 10 points apiece as host Schenevus won in the Tri-Valley League.
Karly Cairo and Ceara Marlow had eight points apiece for the Dragons (4-3, 4-2), who trailed, 20-10, after one quarter.
“We went to man-to-man,” Schenevus coach Tim Walke said of his team’s 18-5 run in the second quarter. “We started in a box-and-one on Addy (Lawson) and they were pounding ball in the paint. Then we went man-to-man and it was a tight game all the way through.”
Mataiah Waters had 13 points and Lawson finished with 11 for Milford.
