“My assistant coaches did a good job preparing the team defensively,” Northeastern Clinton coach Frank Dumas said. “We pretty much kept two people on (Ryan). (Allie) Cartier and (Taylor) Rabideau double-teamed her all night, and they did a wonderful job.”

Ryan, who averages 24.3 points per game, scored 12 Tuesday.

Jordan Dominic put up a game-high 18 points, including four triples, for the Cougars, and Skyler Hebert scored 15. Molly Roush added eight points.

Northeastern Clinton (7-8, 6-7) led by 10 at one point in the first half, but by halftime it was 26-24.

“The third quarter, we outscored them18-6, and that pretty much decided the game,” Dumas said. “That’s a big win for our program, because it’s been a little bit of a long season. But the girls haven’t given up.”

Grace Kelly scored a team-high 14 points, including nine from the foul line, for Beekmantown (13-3, 12-2).

“Kelly had a nice game. She pretty much runs the show for them,” Dumas said. “We put Molly Roush on Kelly, and she did a nice job on her.”
