Redskins run away with Class C sectional title

(Continued)

“Holy cow they hit some threes, which is not something (Weedsport has) done all year,” Niles said. “We were really afraid of getting into foul trouble on (point guard Gabby) LaForce. We had a couple of people in front of her at all times.”

LaForce’s 10 points paced Weedsport, which received eight apiece from Marsden and Cassie Weeks.

Haggerty, who dominated the inside with center Cring, scored 10 points in the opening half for the Redskins. Cring finished with eight points and Millea had seven for Cooperstown, which advanced to a Class C state quarterfinal March 9 at Oneonta State.

The Redskins of the Center State Conference will face Unatego or Harpursville in the quarterfinal. The Midstate Athletic Conference rivals will play for the Section Four Class C championship at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Broome County Arena in Binghamton.

Cooperstown, which has not played Harpursville this season, earned a 37-34 non-league road win at Unatego on Dec. 11.

Cooperstown 59, Weedsport 44
