POPLAR RIDGE, N.Y. — Foul troubles proved costly as S-VE dropped a 38-36 IAC Small School crossover game to Southern Cayuga here Tuesday.
"We got into foul trouble right from the beginning of the game," said S-VE coach Abby Gentile. "Having only eight players, this made the night very difficult.
"Even with that, we fought and had a chance to win it at the end of the game. Unfortunately we failed to execute at both ends down the stretch and suffered the loss."
Hannah Martinez and Sophia Dutra scored five and four points, respectively, for the Panthers in the first quarter, but managed just one field goal, by Tara Perkins, in the second and fell behind at halftime, 13-11.
The Chieftains maintained the lead in the third on 3-pointers from Kaley Driscoll and Avery Colton, offsetting treys by Martinez and Madelynn Pasto.
SC failed to pull away in the final frame, going just 2-for-12 at the free throw line, but held S-VE at bay by making five field goals while the Panthers converted six.
Martinez would lead S-VE with 10 points, three steals and two assists while Dutra had seven points, eight rebounds, two assists and two steals; and Perkins had seven points and two assists.
Paige Grube contributed five points, six rebounds and three steals; Pasto had five points, two assists and two steals; Hannah Forrest tacked on two points; and Cora Sousa added a pair of thefts.
S-VE hosts Union Springs Friday.
