Defending sectional champs thump Afton girls

(Continued)

“We pressured them early and they had some trouble with it,” G-MU coach Jim Johnson said. “They’re young. I have older kids but no starter back. We have five seniors this year, even though none of them were starters last year. The ability to pressure them helped us tonight.”

G-MU will play two-time defending Section Four Class D champion South Kortright at 7:30 p.m. Saturday for the title.

“They have three really good players in Tori Rockefeller, Kayla Craft and Miquela Hanselman,” Johnson said. “They have a lot of good players, but those three are really good. They’re going to get some shots, but we have to be able to keep them from getting easy baskets. We can’t be giving them points. They’re going to score enough anyway.”

Laurens plays Afton in the consolation game at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Franklin 47, CV-S 34

Junior guard Jordan Beers scored a game-high 26 points to lead Franklin to a victory in the Anton Remy Tournament.

Marisa Cawley contributed 15 points for Franklin (1-0), which will face Milford (1-0) at 5:45 p.m. Saturday in the final round of the three-team, round-robin tournament.

Lauren Loucks scored a team-high 12 points for the Patriots (0-2), who trailed, 29-19, at halftime.

Worcester 39, SS 21

Cierra Ralph, Jaime Thompson and Grace Harrington each scored eight points to lead visiting Worcester to a non-league victory.

Renee Handy hit five threes en route to a game-high 15 points for Sharon Springs, which received 10 rebounds from Janelle Cross.

Sharon Springs (0-1) visits Richfield Springs on Thursday.

Worcester (1-0) hosts Edmeston on Tuesday.
