Horde girls hoops drop two

T he Golden Horde girls basketball team dropped a pair of road contests last week, falling to Cambridge and Schuylerville.

A lopsided first quarter score sunk the Golden Horde’s hopes of a win against the Black Horses Friday night as Granville was outpaced, 19-3, in the first frame of a 57-32 loss. Emily Fuller was one point off the leading scorer’s 14 points, with 13 points, but it was not enough as Granville generated 14 points in the second half. Meghan O’Brien scored nine points. Lauren Nelson had five points, but Alyssa Scott and Hunter Bassett were held to a combined three points. Granville is 4-6 in league play and 5-8 overall.

Although the Golden Horde posted its highest point total of the season, it was not enough against Tamarac Feb. 3 as Granville fell, 74-60, in Wasaren League play. Granville was edged in both quarters of the first half and went to the break down by 13. The Horde matched the Bengals in the second half nearly point-for-point but was unable to close the gap.

Head Coach Lance Jordan said the team “gave up too many three-pointers and couldn’t match (the Bengals) offensively” in the road loss.

The Bengals’ Jenna Erickson led all scorers with 26 points and fired up four three-pointers. Fuller led the Horde with 20 points including two three-pointers and O’Brien joined her in double-digit scoring with 15 points. Scott added six points, Bassett seven, Nelson eight and Bridget Decker four points.
Tamarac           17 18 17 22-74
Granville           10 12 17 21-60

Granville                3 15 7 7 – 32

Schuylerville          19 12 18 8 – 57
