PLATTSBURGH — Freshman sensation Shannon Ryan tallied 24 points for Beekmantown Friday — in the first half.

Ryan finished with a career-high 42 points, 19 rebounds and three blocks as the Eagles slipped past Plattsburgh, 60-50, in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference girls' basketball.

"We played well," Ryan said. "This was a good team effort and the guards did a great job at breaking the pressure.

"Everyone did well; this was a huge team effort."

Beekmantown (2-2, 2-1) took a 32-27 lead into the half, but the Hornets roared back in the third to tie the game at 43.

The Eagles, however, stepped up the defense in the fourth quarter and outscored Plattsburgh 17-7.

"It was a good fourth quarter," Beekmantown coach Greg Waters said. "The guards turned it over a lot less and we executed our half-court sets — which means get it inside.

"This was a nice game with a good team effort."

In the first half, the Hornets (0-3) got a lot of their scoring from Marle Curle, who finished with 15 points.

In the second half, however, Curle was held in check by the smothering defense of Grace Kelly.

"I thought Grace did a good job battling Curle," Waters said. "(Curle) is probably the best guard in the league and we knew she was going to get points, but Grace made her work hard for each one."

"(In the fourth quarter) we played some good defense," Ryan said. "Our guard Grace Kelly played great defense and (Rylei) Porter did a good job getting the ball up the court."

Olivia Carlsson scored a team-high 17 points to lead the way for Plattsburgh. Kianna Dragoon finished with eight.

Kelly finished with eight points to help Beekmantown.

Emily Anderson finished with six points, nine rebounds and three blocks — she is also part of a great tandem with Ryan on the inside.

"We've played together for awhile now," Ryan said. "She's really fun to play with.

"She is also really unselfish."

"They've played a lot together,' Waters said. "And Katie Munson, the JV coach, has worked with them and it's worked out well."

Ryan's 42 points overtakes her previous career-high of 38 points earlier this season in a 56-41 victory over Northeastern Clinton.

Stephanie Linder added 10 points and six steals, and Victoria Phaneuf scored eight and grabbed nine rebounds.
