Lady Patriots top Schuylerville, 63-38

BROADALBIN — It took the Broadalbin-Perth Lady Patriots a quarter to get into rhythm, but once they did, it was smooth sailing as they took down the Schuylerville Black Horses 63-38 in a Foothills Council match-up at Broadalbin-Perth High School Thursday night.

With the second quarter winding down, Broadalbin-Perth’s Caroline Iannotti stole the ball away from the Black Horses and hoist up an off-balance 3-point attempt to beat the buzzer, and make it.

A shot that encapsulated the entire game for both teams.

“It was a really heady play from Caroline [Iannotti] to get the steal and then know she had two seconds on the clock to beat it. It was a great instinctual play by her that gave us the momentum going into halftime,” said Broadalbin-Perth head coach Tucker Gifford.

It was a dominant second quarter from Broadalbin-Perth as the Lady Patriots forced Schuylerville into 10 turnovers and outscored them 24-5 to go into halftime with a 20-point lead.

“Once we slowed down, we turned them over numerous times with our press,” said Gifford. “When they were able to beat that, our zone worked well, which allowed us to get steals on the wings and led to runouts which changed the entire game.”

Broadalbin-Perth got a big boost on the offensive end from Makenzie Smith who scored 12 of her game-high 21 points in the second quarter. She also was effective on the glass collecting 15 rebounds.

“Smith was back for them and it was a tough match-up to try and guard her all night,” said Schuylerville head coach Jason Mehan. “She is a great player and she really hurt us tonight.”

Coming out of halftime, Schuylerville’s Lauren King tried to chip away at the lead that the Lady Patriots had built up, scoring six of her 10 points in the third quarter. King sat out a majority of the first half due to early foul trouble.

“She is one of our key pieces,” said Mehan. “It’s tough when any of your players get into early foul trouble because the movement of the basketball isn’t there and it clearly wasn’t there in the first half when she wasn’t out there. You saw in the second half she started to ramp it up a bit and get going again.”

The turnovers again haunted the Black Horses as they committed four more in the third quarter. Broadalbin-Perth’s Lauralie Grainer capitalized, turning two of them into transition lay-ups. Grainer buried a 3-pointer near the end of the third quarter to add to her point total of 12 on the night.

To begin the game, Schuylerville used a scoring by committee approach as they got nine points between five players, including two from Macey Koval who led the Black Horses in scoring with 11 points.

Emma Goebel got the Lady Patriots offense going in the first quarter, coming off the bench and contributing seven points. She ended with 13 total points.

After the first quarter the score sat at 10-9 in favor of Broadalbin-Perth. That is the closest the score got.

For Schuylerville, they fall to 1-17 overall and 1-15 in the Foothills Council and will be back in action on the road as they look to take on the second ranked team in the Foothills Council, the Amsterdam Rams Monday with tip-off scheduled for 7 p.m..

“We’re going into sectionals as a lower seed so we will take our shot,” said Mehan. “We have been tested with teams like Queensbury, Amsterdam, and Johnstown and I think we are ready to get a game possibly outside of our league and a tough schedule all year will pay off as we look to get a win here or there and see what happens.”

The Lady Patriots move to 5-13 overall and 5-10 in the Foothills Council with two more conference games remaining, with their next match-up coming Friday when they travel to take on the Glens Falls Indians at 4 p.m.

“We have games where we score 30 and then have games like today where we score 60,” said Gifford. “For us, it is just a matter of knowing that sometimes our defense can fuel our offense and we need to have confidence to take those shots as we look to build up some steam toward sectionals.”
