Burgher girls on a roll as they start season

In the back court, Junior guard Isabella Szabo has been performing well, Smith said, in the absence of experienced playmaker Jaci O'Brien, who is sidelined with an injury until January.

Against Bolton, Szabo scored 7 points, including the game's lone three-pointer. Against Johnsburg however, Szabo hit two treys and 10 points to help secure the Burgher victory.

Senior Katelyn Kuklinski, the companion guard, tallied 8 assists and 5 points against Johnsburg, plus 4 more against Bolton.

Against the Eagles, Ashlie Morehouse scored a career-high 18 points along with 10 rebounds, Smith said.

"We're working hard as a team and excited to be 2-0 at this point," Smith said, adding a note of caution. "But now we're going into Adirondack League play, which is highly competitive, and we need to step up to that challenge every night."

On Friday the Burghers host Argyle, and on Monday, they host Corinth. Both teams traditionally have fared well.

Smith said his squad is ready for some grueling action.

"We hope to keep the momentum going," he said. "We're going to make a little noise in our league this year."
