Second-half rally leads Stamford girls past Downsville

STAFF REPORT

Nora Hager scored 11 of her 16 points during a 16-4 third-quarter run that helped host Stamford to a 41-28 Delaware League girls basketball victory over visiting Downsville on Friday.

Downsville led, 14-13, at halftime. In the second half, Stamford switched to a box-and-one to slow Kaileen Townsend, with Hager and Heather Dunning taking turns guarding her.

“That seemed to swing the game around,” Stamford coach Lonnie Nickerson said.

Hager hit a three in the third quarter along with a few fastbreak layups. Kimi Freer also had 16 points, to go along with nine rebounds and seven steals, for the Indians (3-2, 3-2), who will play Laurens on Friday in the Stamford Christmas Tournament.

Townsend finished with 16 points for the Eagles.

CV-S 47, Edmeston 22

Brianna Dunham and Sydney Smith each scored five points apiece for Edmeston.

RS 48, G-MU 36

Kaity Richvalsky shared a game-high 15 points to lead visiting Richfield Springs to a Tri-Valley League victory.

Gilbertsville-Mount Upton’s Meghan Meers scored the first field goal of the second half, a jumper,

to pull the Raiders to two points, but Richvalsky converted a three-point play shortly after to start a 7-0 run to give Richfield Springs a 37-28 lead, heading into the final quarter.

‘‘She helped to put it out of reach,’’ G-MU coach Jim Johnson said.

Meers had a team-best 15 points for the Raiders.

Richfield Springs (3-3, 2-2) will visit Deposit on Jan 6.
