Sumer Murdock scored 22 points and Alannah Haggerty had 14 to lead top-seeded Cooperstown to a 67-24 girls basketball rout of visiting Beaver River in a Section Three Class C-1 quarterfinal Friday night.
Murdock sank three three-point field goals and Haggerty grabbed 12 rebounds for the state-ranked Redskins (17-2), who jumped to a 21-2 lead after one quarter en route to a 38-7 advantage at halftime.
“Haggerty was out of this world,” Cooperstown coach Mike Cring said. “Maggie Hall had six steals and played out of this world on their point guard, too.”
Hall helped limit seventh-grade point guard Emma Puddington to two points for eighth-seeded Beaver River (6-13), which received a team-best 10 points from Abby Cornell.
Liz Millea contributed 12 points, seven assists and five steals for Cooperstown, which advanced to a C-1 semifinal at Onondaga Community College on Wednesday. Cring said his team will play Herkimer or Frankfort-Schuyler at 6 or 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Milford 47, CV-S 19
Addy Lawson finished with game-highs of 19 points and 11 rebounds as 16th-seeded host Milford cruised past No. 17 Cherry Valley-Springfield in a play-in game for the Section Four Class D Tournament.
“We made some shots and played good defense,” said Milford coach Jim Weir, whose team held a 12-0 lead on its Tri-Valley League rivals after eight minutes. “The two Loucks girls (Lauren and Jordan of CV-S) are pretty good players and they didn’t get much.”
Lawson scored 12 points in Milford’s 20-9 third quarter, which gave the Wildcats a 45-16 lead. Lawson also had five assists, five steals and three three-pointers for Milford (10-7), which will play a first-round sectional game at undefeated top seed Franklin (15-0) at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Franklin plays Schenevus for the Tri-Valley League championship at 6 p.m. Saturday at Oneonta State.
