RACHEL MOORE/P-R PHOTO Beekmantown's Kenna Guynup (4) looks to reset the offense as teammates Shannon Ryan (back) and Emily Anderson (44) post up during Tuesday's girls' Northern Basketball League contest at Beekmantown. Northern Adirondack's Jillian Scott defends Guynup on the play.

Northern Adirondack proved it belonged in the top of the Division I standings with a victory over AuSable Valley last week.

Tuesday night, however, Beekmantown’s height proved to be just too much.

Shannon Ryan tossed in a game-high 22 points, while Emily Anderson chipped in with 16 points in the Eagles’ 70-30 victory over the Bobcats in girls’ Northern Basketball League action.

Ryan scored 14 of Beekmantown’s 19 points in the first quarter. Anderson tossed in 10 points in the second quarter.

Tori Barrett and Gabrielle Rowell each had strong games for the Eagles. Both players finished with eight points.

“We again had a solid team effort on defense,” Beekmantown coach Greg Waters said.
