Unatego girls top Union-Endicott at home

JARED BOMBA | The Daily Star Unatego’s Jenna Faulkner drives past Union-Endicott’s Sabrina Evans during the first quarter of Tuesday’s non-league girls basketball game at Unatego.

Meghan Perry scored a game-high 19 points to lead nine Unatego scorers as the Spartans pulled away from visiting Union-Endicott on Tuesday, Jan. 21, in non-league girls basketball.

The Spartans held a 14-12 lead after one period, but took a 34-20 lead into halftime with a 20-8 run in the second period. Meghan Perry scored 15 of her 19 in the first half, and Tatum Codington came off the bench to hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer, extending the deficit from 11 to 14 entering halftime.

Jenna Faulkner scored seven of her nine points in the third quarter as a 19-11 advantage in the frame made the deficit 22 entering the fourth.

“We came out in the third quarter and jumped on them right away,” Unatego coach Bob Zeh said. “They’re a good team, but they kind of faltered after we got the first couple of buckets.”

Meghan Perry totaled nine field goals and a free throw for her 19, and was joined by sister Morgan Perry in double digits with 12 points on four field goals and a 4-for-4 mark at the line. They each had seven rebounds.

Codington finished with 10 points on four field goals and a foul shot, while Faulkner and Alexa Lucia each totaled nine points.

Maddie Wilsey scored three points and produced six steals for the Spartans, who received 25 points from substitutes.

Alexa Suero scored all 15 of her points from beyond the arc to lead Union-Endicott. L.J. Shabazz followed with six.

Unatego (12-1, 5-0) will travel to Delhi for a big Midstate Athletic Conference contest Tuesday, Jan. 28.

Cooperstown 53, South Kortright 39

Piper Seamon had nine of her game-high 12 points in the second half to lead Cooperstown to a non-league win at South Kortright.

The Hawkeyes outscored the Rams, 30-17, in the second half after taking a one-point lead into halftime.

Cooperstown also received eight points in the second half from Ashley Kiuber, including seven points in the third, and two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter from Lindsey Trosset (eight points).

Chenango Forks 60, Walton 56

Chenango Forks nipped host Walton behind 24 points from Bree Fargnoli in non-league play.

Three of Fargnoli’s buckets came from long range and Kait Eaton, who chipped in with 17 points, also hit three 3-pointers.

Chenango Forks used a 20-8 third-quarter run to briefly pull away from the Warriors, but Walton rebounded with a 20-8 fourth-quarter burst of its own.

“They didn’t give up,” Walton coach Gary Backus said. “We had a furious rally and the kids played hard.”

The Warriors trailed by as many as 16 points, but brought it to a three-point game late in regulation.

Jacqlyn Gransbury led the Warriors with 22 points on eight field goals, including six 3-pointers. Senior center McKenzie Clough pulled down 21 rebounds to go with her 12 points and four blocked shots.

Although Walton managed to drain 20 field goals, one less than Chenango Forks’ 21, it only managed to go 8-for-20 free throws. Chenango Forks finished with a 12-for-21 clip from the charity stripe.

Walton (7-5, 3-2) will host Oxford at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23.

Stamford 65, Davenport 34

Stamford downed Davenport in the Delaware League behind a game-high 33 points from Melanie Hoyt.

The Indians took a 19-10 first-quarter lead, and outscored the Wildcats in each quarter. A 16-4 run in the third quarter built on a 12-point halftime deficit.

Hoyt finished with 14 field goals and went 5-for-6 from the foul line. She also grabbed 17 rebounds on her way to a double-double.

Gwen Tompkins joined Hoyt in double figures with 11 points on four field goals.

Jessica Zuill topped all Davenport scorers, accumulating 16 points on five field goals, including three 3-pointers.

Stamford went 12-for-25 from the foul line, while Davenport managed an 11-for-24 mark.

Stamford will host Roxbury at 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23.

Worcester 48, Gilboa 28

Worcester eighth-grader Hailey Shalor hit six 3-pointers as Worcester defeated Gilboa in nonleague play.

The Wolverines took an 11-4 lead after one quarter, and extended a 43-22 lead after three quarters with advantages of 15-9 and 17-9 in the second and third frames, respectively.

Shalor led all scorers with 22 points, hitting six of her eight field goals from long range.

“The game really opens up when Hailey shoots like that,” Worcester coach Chris Kalthenbach said in a media release. “Four different players were able to convert from deep tonight, it truly demonstrates our ability to share the ball and doesn’t allow teams to key on one player.”

Delimar Vega-Haley hit a pair of 3-pointers to join Shalor in double figures with 10 points on four field goals. Iriyah Haley (six points) had two 3-pointers and Elizabeth Odell (also six) had one as the Wolverines totaled 11 buckets from beyond the arc.
