Horde girls fall at Valley

T he second-seeded Hoosic Valley Indians showed the Golden Horde the door out of the Section II Class B girls basketball playoffs Tuesday night in Schaghticoke, 56-24. Days after playing their way in with a strong offensive output against Cobleskill, Granville ran into the oppressive Valley defense and was held to five points in the first half of play. Granville was held scoreless in the first quarter and did not outscore the Indians in any quarter of play. The eighth ranked scorer in Section II in points per game, third in total points with 390, Emily Fuller, who topped 1,000 career points two games previously was held to five points by the stingy Indians defense. Fuller is also second in 3-pointers, with 47, behind only Cassidy Chapko of Valley who has 53 tres. Hunter Bassett scored five points, Meghan O’Brien four points, Alyssa Scott three points and Ashley Baker, Heather Chapman and Decker each scored two points for Granville. The defense fared not better as three Indians scored in doubled figures staking Valley to 33-5 halftime lead; Valley hosts Tamarac Friday night in the next round of the B playoffs.  The Horde finished the season 7-13 overall.
