GABE DICKENS/P-R PHOTO Saranac's Kayla Napper (left) tangles with a Northeastern Clinton opponent for possession of a loose ball during Tuesday's Northern Basketball League girls' matchup at Saranac Central School.

Saranac used a huge third quarter to pull past upset-minded Northeastern Clinton for a 66-54 victory Tuesday in girls’ Northern Basketball League action.

Tori Trim scored a game-high 20 points, while Kayla Napper tossed in 16 points and dished out six assists to lead the charge for the Chiefs. Trim drained four 3-pointers.

Summer Gillespie added 11 points and 10 rebounds.

After being tied after the first quarter, the Cougars took a five-point lead into the half. But Saranac exploded for 28 points in the third quarter to take a 49-40 lead.

“It was a typical Saranac-NCCS game as both teams were very aggressive early in their offense,” Chiefs coach Tim Newell said. “I felt we had great intensity to start the game, but we were too impatient in our offensive sets and tried to force too many early shots. That allowed NCCS to get out in transition.

“We had some adjustments to our defensive schemes, which allowed us to apply more pressure full court. The girls did a nice job in the third quarter pushing the ball and attacking the basket with their dribble.”

Shaylyn Rowe led the Cougars with 14 points. Kayla Carder added 13 points, while Peyton Sample finished with 12.

Beekmantown 64, Peru 40

PERU — Shannon Ryan poured in 35 points as the Eagles defeated the Indians.

Beekmantown outscored Peru 18-7 in the second quarter to distance itself.

Emily Anderson added 10 points for the Eagles, while Grace Kelly chipped in with nine.

“I thought we played them very strong through the first quarter,” Indians coach Eric Dubay said. “Their size was a little too much to handle, especially once a few players got into foul trouble in the second.

“Ryan is tough to stop once she gets the ball in the paint. She is surrounded by a good group of girls as well. They kept their heads and executed their game plan very well.”

Maddy Flynn scored a team-high 15 points, including four 3-pointers, for Peru. Meghan Mazzella and Sam Spear each chipped in with nine points, while Amanda Laporte added seven.

“I thought the girls showed more spirit, more fight than we have before,” Dubay said. “Maddy Flynn shot the ball very well for us, and Sam Spear did a good job boxing out and rebounding. Overall, the girls are improving and it showed (Tuesday).”

PLATTSBURGH — Taylor Saltus scored 17 points to lead the Patriots over the Hornets.

Logan Snow added 14 points for AuSable Valley, while Madison Rondeau chipped in with 12 points. Madison McCabe finished with eight points.

“AuSable is yet another team with strong guards that apply lots of pressure, and we simply struggle with the pressure,” Plattsburgh coach Brad LaValley said. “AuSable can take you off the dribble with the excellent guard play, and if you switch to zone they can shoot the lights out.

“We battled to the end. I like how we never gave up. We just have to keep scrapping and work to get better.”

Ashley Marlow paced the Hornets with seven points. Shea Frady chipped in with six points.
