Girls hoops split league games

G ranville split a pair of Wasaren League games, falling to Hoosic Valley but defeating Stillwater in recent girls basketball action.

In both games Emily Fuller led all scorers but with different results. On Dec. 14 Fuller’s 21 points paced Granville over the Stillwater Warriors, 43-31.

Granville won two of the four quarters as it outscored Stillwater in the second and fourth periods to earn its first league win of the young season. After being outscored in the first by just one point Granville battled back and dominated the second quarter, which proved to be the difference in the game.

Alyssa Scott scored eight points. Hunter Bassett had seven; Lauren Nelson had four and Meghan O’Brien scored three points in the win. Fuller was back in form dropping in a perfect seven-of-seven from the line after missing two against Tamarac; O’Brien and Bassett each also made every free throw attempted. Defensively, Granville held all Warriors shooters to single-digit scoring in the win.

On the road against Valley last Friday night Granville did not fare as well. While Fuller led all scorers with 15 points, Granville lost, 58-23, dropping to 1-2 in the league. Granville received scoring from O’Brien, Scott and Bassett but could not overcome the Indians’ stifling defense, netting just 10 points in the first half and 13 in the second. The Golden Horde is off until Monday, Dec. 27, when it plays in the Whitehall tournament.

Granville 8 15 6 14 – 43

Stillwater 9 3 9 10 – 31

Granville                8 2 10 3 – 23

Hoosic Valley       18 14 12 14 – 58
