Girls even league record with vs. Bolton

T he Whitehall girls basketball team evened their Adirondack League record with a narrow win over Bolton Friday night on the Railroaders home court.

Whitehall overcame a one-point third quarter to pull out a 32-26 win.

Rebecca Lavin scored a game high 14 points and Victoria Christian pulled down 12 rebounds.

Olivia Seamans had a double-double for Bolton, scoring 12 points and grabbing 10 boards.

Neither team could generate any offensive momentum as they combined to commit nearly 50 turnovers.

Head coach Jim Burgey described his team’s performance as their worst all season but did give the players credit for responding in fourth quarter.

The Railroaders scored only 18 points through the first three quarters and after challenging his team to play better, Whitehall responded by scoring 14 points in the fourth quarter to seal the win.

The win came on the heels of a 50-29 loss to Fort Ann last Wednesday.

Jordan Aubin scored 22 points for Fort Ann and Kara Whitehall added 11.

Ariel Ayers led Whitehall with nine points, all on 3 pointers and Lavin added eight points.

Whitehall played a strong game defensively, limiting Fort Ann to 10 points in the first and fourth quarters but managed to score only 16 points in the game’s first three quarters.

Starting center and team leader Brittney Putorti missed both games with a concussion but is expected to play when Whitehall hosts Salem tomorrow night.

The Railroaders are 5-5 in the league and 6-5 overall.
