High School Sports

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga girls basketball team played two tough games this week. The team finished with a 1-1 record for the week, which falls right in line with how the season has progressed as their league and overall records stand at .500. The week started out with a thrilling 60-59 victory Friday night against Troy high school. The score was close at the end; however, the score was not quite close going into the fourth quarter as Troy led 52-37 and seemed to be in full control. Saratoga had other ideas and came storming back with a 23-7 fourth quarter run closing out the Troy Flying Horses. Briann Barringer led the scoring for Saratoga with 15 points while Kerry Flaherty chipped in another 12. Troy, which is now .500 in league play, was led by Sabrina Wolfe’s 22 points. The roles reversed on Tuesday night as Saratoga fell 71-67 against the Albany Lady Falcons. The legs gave out in the fourth quarter for the Blue Streaks much the way the legs gave out for Troy in their previous game. Saratoga lost fourth quarter by fifteen points giving up a whopping 26 points in the final stanza alone. Saratoga had a huge game from Catherine Cairns who finished with 32 points while draining five three-pointers. Kerry Flaherty finished with 13 points for the blue streaks who oddly enough won each of the first three quarters of the game only to fall just short at the end. The Saratoga Boys’ team had a terrific week and seemed to be surging at the right time. The team has now won 3 in a row finishing off Troy on Friday night and Albany on Tuesday night giving the 2nd place Blue Streaks a 7-2 league record. The Troy Flying Horses pushed Saratoga into overtime only to get outscored 11-4 behind the out of this world play of Adam Anderson, who poured in 30 points on the night. AJ Lawton, Brian Hart and Mike Tillman chipped in with 16, 14 and 10 points respectively. Troy was led by Daniel Buie’s 19 points with the Flying Horses sitting in second place in the blue division. The second game of the week was another tough one for Saratoga as they finished off a pesky Albany team 66-60 behind Adam Anderson’s 22 points. Anderson who poured in 30 points the previous week, was a force to be reckoned with going to the line 14 times, hitting 12 of his free throws on the night. The game was tied going into the fourth quarter before Saratoga was able to pull away for the victory. Albany was led by Ja’Quan Bertrand’s 15 points. The Saratoga Central Boys basketball team lost a tough battle last Friday night against Hoosic Valley 46-43. This defensive battle went back and forth with Saratoga leading at the half 22-18. Momentum switched in the third quarter with Hoosic Valley winning the period 19-12 which would end up being the only period Hoosic would win in the game. Clearly it was enough as they held on for the win behind the stellar play of Isaac Sanchez and Bradley McGreavey. Sanchez finished with 20 points while McGreavey ended the game with 17. Tyrel Tilman led the charge for Spa Catholic with 20 points. Spa Catholic has not lost 3 of their last 4 but can turn this trend around with a win against Mechanicville Friday night.
