Girls lose play-in game


The Whitehall girls basketball team’s season came to an end Friday night as it lost to Canajoharie 43-31 in the play-in game of the Section II Class C tournament.

Despite a game high 14 points from Brittney Putorti, the Railroaders were unable to get past the Cougars who advanced to the next round.

Whitehall made the drive to Canajoharie and the long trip seemed to have an adverse affect on the team as they were unable to get their offense clicking in the first half.

The Cougars held Whitehall to five points in each of the first two quarters as they raced out to a 24-10 halftime lead. The Railroaders scored 13 points in the third quarter and eight in the fourth but were unable to complete the comeback.

The loss caps an otherwise successful season that saw the team win eight games despite the fact its leading scorer rebounder from last season, Kelsey Farley, never played a game and its emotional leader, Putorti missed several games with an injury.

The game was also the last for a core group of seniors that have been with the program for several years. Ariel Ayers, Rebecca Lavin, Victoria Christian, Faith Eaton, Putorti and Kendra Rocque all put on the maroon and white for the last time.

The team finishes the season right in the middle of a very competitive Adirondack League, having compiled a 7-9 record, 8-10 overall.
