PLATTSBURGH — The Knights were in it the whole way, but the Hornet girls came out with the win.

The Hornets were down by seven points with about five minutes left, according to Mazella.

“We started to find a rhythm to close it out,” Mazella said. “We have been talking about learning how to win and finding ways to grind out games, and we did that tonight.”

Cora Long led the Plattsburgh offence, draining four three-pointers en route to her team high 16 points.

Mazella also praised Isabel DeTulleo and Alli Crahan for giving the team “a spark and great minutes off the bench,” late in the game.

Spaulding netted 14 points total, along with seven assists, five rebounds, four steals and seven deflections.

“Greenan got it going later in the game and hit some big shots to keep us separated,” Panthers coach Jason Hughes said. “Spaulding seemed to be everywhere on the floor tonight.”

He said his team got out to a great start early, using full court pressure to force some turnovers and capitalize off those turnovers.

For Schroon Lake, Isaiah Pelkey hit 23 points, including one three-pointer. Austin Hartwell was next with 11 points, and one three. Ethan Phillips also hit a trey.

“I know they will be tougher when we go to their place next month for the league game,” Hughes said. “A lot of credit to them for playing hard for the full 32 minutes.”

“The gym was full and it was a great atmosphere for the game. My guys played very well and I am happy with the win.”
