Lake George 26
LAKE GEORGE - The Lake George Girls Basketball team fell into a mid-season slump as they lost to Greenwich 52-26 in a non-league game Jan. 3.
Powering toward the win, Greenwich had a blowout third quarter as Lake George's defense collapsed and the Witches outscored the Warriors 18-0, partially due to their in-your-face defense.
Kelly Flaherty carried the Warriors by scoring 13 points, including three 3-pointers, to lead Lake George. Caroline Murphy and Hahnah Saroff each contributed four points; Chelsea Sipowicz and Courtney Laczko hit one basket each; and Kelly Mellon scored a foul shot.
With the loss, Lake George recedes to 4-4 for the season and Greenwich improves to 4-3.
