S-E 50, Cooperstown 49

1/13

Cooperstown’s girls made a 28-point improvement over their first meeting against Sherburne-Earlville, but it still wasn’t enough.

Liz Millea scored a game-high 16 points, but host Cooperstown lost, 50-49, in a Center State Conference basketball game Monday.

“I thought we played awesome,” Cooperstown coach Mike Niles said. “We lost to them by 29 a month ago. It shows how much we’ve grown up in a month of basketball.”

Savannah Irwin capped her 12-point night by hitting two free throws with about 50 seconds left to give the Marauders a 50-48 lead.

Cooperstown’s Jenn Flynn hit 1 of 2 free throws with about 15 seconds left to make it a one-point game.

Cooperstown then fouled Irwin with 11 seconds left. She missed the free throw, but S-E’s Lilly Berg rebounded.

“We thought we might have tied her up or she might have traveled, but she kicked it out and then they swung it around, and the time ran out,” Niles said.

Berg scored eight of team-high 13 points in the fourth quarter, when S-E outscored Cooperstown, 15-12.

Cooperstown trailed, 26-23, but outscored the Marauders, 14-7, in the third quarter. Christina Noto went 4-for-4 from the line, Millea hit a three-pointer and SJ Morosko hit a late three-pointer that gave Cooperstown a 37-35 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

“The first time we played them, they ran us out of the gym,” Niles said of the 66-37 loss last month. “We did not get burned in transition. We ran a lot more offense and we were calmer. We played our guts out and took a big step.”

Maggie Hall had 11 points, Lucy Ford finished with eight points, seven rebounds and three blocks, and Millea had seven rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

Cooperstown (7-4, 3-2) will host Little Falls on Friday.
