South High deals Lady Patriots loss

BROADALBIN — The Broadalbin-Perth Girls basketball team played host to South Glens Falls in a Foothills match-up Thursday night.

The Lady Patriots made a strong showing in the first quarter before the Bulldogs defensive pressure proved to be too much as South Glens Falls coasted to a 54-36 win.

Eighth grader, Emma Goebel, was high scorer for the Lady Patriots with 16 points while the Bulldogs were led by Ally Buser and Mackenzie Collier with 20 and 18 points respectively.

Goebel got the Lady Patriots on the board first, opening with a 3-pointer from the corner just 30 seconds into the game. Adrienne Morreale followed with a bucket in the lane to get Broadalbin-Perth off to a 5-0 start. Collier hit a free throw at the 4:06 mark to start things off for the Bulldogs but Kylie Stigberg responded with a basket to push the Lady Patriot lead to six.

Collier nailed a 3-point shot and, after Hannah Breen made a free throw, Buser made a 3-pointer to put the Bulldogs ahead by one.

Goebel’s 3-pointer at 1:27 was answered by another 3 point shot from Buser to give South Glens Falls an 11-10 lead.

Collier struck again with another 3-pointer but Caitlin Palmateer made a runner down the lane and Goebel added another bucket to tie the score at 14 at the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter saw the Bulldogs defense stiffen and their full court pressure created turnovers that allowed them to outscore the Lady Patriots 23-5.

The Bulldogs jumped out to a five-point lead with a free throw from Collier, while Breen and Buser each had a steal and a lay-up.

Makenzie Smith picked up a basket for the Lady Patriots but then the Bulldogs went on 12-0 run.

Buser made two 3-pointers, Collier added two baskets and Celyna Shaw made two free throws to give the Bulldogs a 31-16 lead with 4:13 to go in the half.

Lola DiCaterino managed to make a free throw for Broadalbin-Perth before Shaw, Collier and Jordan Palmer combined for six foul shots to put the Bulldogs ahead by 20 with 24 seconds to go.

The Lady Patriots were able to score once more when Nyah Thompson pulled up and hit an eight foot jumper with 3.0 left. The Bulldogs had a 37-19 lead at the half.

The Lady Patriots fared a little better in the third quarter as they were able to find some good shots.

After Collier hit a 15-foot jumper to lead off the second half for the Bulldogs, Goebel hit back-to-back 3-pointers to get Broadalbin-Perth started.

Collier fired back with a 3-point basket and then Thompson responded with a 12 foot jumper with 4:32 remaining in the third quarter making the score 42-21.

The Bulldogs got 3 point baskets from Breen and Madison Ruby to jump out to a 21 point lead.

Thompson stole the ball and drove in for a lay-up and Goebel added two more free throws for the Lady Patriots. South Glens Falls ended the third quarter scoring with another 3-pointer by Buser to make the score 51-31.

The fourth quarter was a low scoring effort by both teams.

With a 20-point lead, the Bulldogs only managed a 3-pointer by Buser, while the Lady Patriots got all five of their fourth-quarter points from Smith, which included three free throws and a steal for a lay-up at the buzzer to make the final score 54-36.

The Lady Patriots (3 -10 overall, 2-9 Foothills) will try to pick up their third Foothills Council win as they host Hudson Falls next Thursday.
