Lake George holds off Corinth assault to win title

Lake George 38,

Corinth 36

CORINTH -- Lake George turned back a fourth-quarter scoring surge Feb. 9 by the Tomahawks to nail down a slim two-point margin, securing the Adirondack League West Division title.

Corinth outscored Lake George 15-3 in the final stanza, but the Warriors had put up enough points early on to take the victory.

Kelly Flaherty led Lake George with 11 points in the balanced effort. Brittany Baker aided with nine, Caroline Murphy contributed eight, and Sara Anderson tallied six. Amanda Chambers and Nicole Bureau each contributed two.

Corinth's Jordan Madison led Corinth with 11 points. Lake George advanced to 11-2 with the win. The Warrior Junior Varsity squad won their matchup.

Fort Ann 49,

Warrensburg 46

FORT ANN -- If it weren't for a sagging second quarter effort, Warrensburg would have upset Fort Ann in a high-scoring matchup Feb. 13.

Fort Ann's 13-6 advantage in the second stanza, however, provided the margin the Cardinals needed to secure a 49-46 win over Warrensburg in an Adirondack League crossover game.

In the balanced Burgher effort, Sophomore sensation Brittany DeCrescente led with a game-high 14 points. Classmate Isabelle Szabo contributed 12, which included two three-pointers. Senior Holly Gheen helped out with seven points, and Sophomore Ashlie Morehouse tallied six, Junior Kayce Duell stepped up with four points, and Senior Kaitlin May scored three.

Breanna Moore had 14 points to lead Fort Ann, while Jordan Aubin scored 12.

Warrensburg finished out their regular season with a 3-14 league record.

Hartford 37,

North Warren 34

CHESTERTOWN -- The Cougars Girls Basketball team was edged out 37-34 by a hard-charging Hartford squad in an Adirondack League crossover game Monday.

North Warren had an upset win in sight after leading 22-21 at the half and 27-26 to start the third quarter, but Hartford fought back with 11 points in the closing minutes, while containing the Cougars to 7 to put the game away.
