Golden Horde girls take two in a row

G ranville battled to .500 in the Wasaren League with two straight victories, defeating Stillwater and Schuylerville.

Playing a rescheduled game Saturday evening, Emily Fuller poured in four three-pointers en route to tying a season high 28 points as the Golden Horde surprised the Black Horses, 45-39. The win was the first for Jordan during his tenure in Granville.

Fuller scored 13 of those 28 points in the final frame. Darian Chapman dropped two foul shots with seconds left on the clock to seal the win for Granville. Meghan O’Brien contributed 12 points as the only other Granville player to score in double figures.

Defensively, Granville held down Black Horses’ Katelyn Fane, allowing her only five points, eight off of her season average while preventing double digit scoring from all other Schuylerville players.

Granville climbed to 4-4 while Schuylerville took just its third loss of the season; Granville is 5-6 overall.

The Golden Horde turned back the Warriors Friday night to rally to a Wasaren League win over Stillwater, 42-36. Fuller led all scorers with 23 points, notching eight in the final frame as the Horde pulled away from a third quarter tie. Hunter Bassett sparked the fourth quarter rally with a bucket as the Horde outscored the Warriors, 11-5, for the victory finishing with 11 points. Heather Chapman scored six points and Meghan O’Brien added two points.

Granville moved out to a lead in the first half but Stillwater was able to battle back and close the gap at the halfway point. Granville moved to 3-4 in the league with the win.

Granville  13 12 6 11 – 42
