Railroaders fall to league’s best

I f last week’s games were a barometer of how far the Whitehall girls basketball team has come since last season, they still have some work to do if they want to compete for a league title.

The Railroaders squared off against Adirondack League division leaders Fort Edward and Lake George and ended up the wrong side of both games.

On Dec. 12, defending league champ Fort Edward cruised to a lopsided 66-16 win over Whitehall.

The Flying Forts, undefeated entering the week, outscored Whitehall 33-3 in the first half and had as many players score double digit points as Whitehall had score any points.

Sam Godfrey scored a game high 17 points, Taylor Boucher added 14 more and two other players each scored 10 points.

Ashley Davis scored a team high nine points for Whitehall and Rebecca Lavin added five points. Only two other players scored a point for the Railroaders.

On Friday night the Railroaders squared off against another undefeated team and while the score was closer the result was the same.

Lake George outscored Whitehall 27-13 in the second half on its way to a 43-31 win.

Hahnah Saroff had 11 points for Lake George.

Brittney Putorti scored a game high 16 points for Whitehall.

The Railroaders actually went into the half with a two point lead after outscoring Lake George 12-6 in the second quarter but the Warriors defense clamped down in the second half limiting Whitehall to only five points in the third quarter.

With the losses, Whitehall drops to 1-3 in the league and 2-3 overall. They host North Warren on Friday evening before a two-week layoff during the holidays.
