CHAZY — Dakotah Cutting had 14 points in the Wildcats win over the Eagles, while Kaylie Hayden and Allison Baker each netted 10.

In the three-point game, Baker netted two, Hayden, Brittany Mieras and Saige Shaughnessy all hit one.

“Just a fun, really competitive basketball game tonight from both teams that came down to the final minutes of the game,” Chazy coach Josh Howell said. “Give coach Jeff Cutting and his girls credit. They came out in the second half and really did a nice job defensively.”

“Schroon Lake is a really good basketball team. We kicked off our regular season against them a month ago and they thumped us pretty good at their place, so I am proud of the improvement my girls showed tonight.”

For the Eagles, Samantha Gonyo and Carly Lapierre led the team with 10 points each. Kassidy Turek, Hadley Lucas and Emma Howell each had five points.

“Lapierre had a double-double tonight as she grabbed 11 rebounds to go with her 10 points, and I can’t say enough about Gonyo and what she means to our team. She had an outstanding game tonight,” Howell said.

“We definitely played our best basketball all season in the first half tonight, jumping out to a 28-21 lead at half. It’s crazy how even the stats were tonight, but ultimately the game was won at the charity stripe as Schroon Lake was 12-for-22 while we were just 2-for-5.”

Gonyo also recorded two treys, eight rebounds, seven steals and five assists, while Turek, Lucas and Howell all netted one three for the game.

“I told them after the game that there are no moral victories in losing, but I thought they outplayed Schroon Lake tonight and proved they can play with the top teams in our league,” Howell said.
