T he Whitehall girls basketball team picked up its third win of the season in dominating fashion last week.
The Railroaders held Salem to three or fewer points in the three quarters as they routed Salem 56-14.
Nine players scored for Whitehall, including four who recorded at least eight points. Ashley Davis led Whitehall with 13 points, Sam Baldwin added 10, Kelsey Faley netted nine points and Taryn Tracy scored eight points.
The performance was perhaps Whitehall’s best to date.
Whitehall recorded double digit points in every quarter including a 19-point first quarter. Its defense was also stingy, limiting Salem to three points in the first and fourth quarters, seven points in the second quarter and a single point in the third quarter.
Unfortunately the positive momentum from the game did not carry over to the Railroaders’ game at Bolton on Friday night.
The Eagles held Whitehall to 11 points in the first quarter and three players reached double digit scoring.
Sarah Calzada had 14 points and 13 rebounds and Olivia Seamans added 14 points and had 8 steals.
Ashley Davis had another big game, leading Whitehall with 18 points. Other than Davis, however, the Railroaders struggled to find the net. Whitehall was held to single digit scoring in three of four quarters while Bolton recorded double digit scoring in three quarters.
Whitehall’ s record is 3-9 in the Adirondack League and overall. They travel to Fort Edward tomorrow night before hosting Hartford (Feb. 4), Argyle (Feb. 7) and Fort Ann (Feb. 11) to end the season.
