“PHS made some big shots in the fourth quarter (and) were able to almost double their point total for the game,” Peru coach Eric Dubay said. “They were able to capitalize when it mattered the most.”
Meghan Mazzella put up 10 points for the Indians, and Amanda Laporte had eight.
“Peru missed too many easy shots and open looks,” Dubay said. “We must start to capitalize on opportunities given to us.”

ELLENBURG — Jillian Scott drained five 3-pointers and totaled 19 points to help the Bobcats come back from a five-point halftime deficit. Scott also recorded four assists.
“Northeastern came ready to play from the start,” Northern Adirondack coach Jessica Barnhart said. “Their girls stepped up in the first half, and (Kayla) Carder did a nice job for them inside the entire game.
“Our girls turned it around in the second half and really showed tenacity and, more importantly, heart. It was a great comeback win.”
The Bobcats had tied the score by the end of the third quarter, and regulation ended at 54-54.
Taylor Durnin and Rachael Venne both scored 12 points for Northern Adirondack, and Magan Magee had eight. Durnin also finished with 13 rebounds, including 11 in the second half. Venne added nine steals, including seven in the second half. And Magee chipped in with six second-half assists.
