SECTION IV GIRLS BASKETBALL: STATE-RANKED GREENE ELIMINATES S-VE FROM PLAYOFFS (2024-02-08)

Tioga County Sports Report
SPENCER — The Spencer-Van Etten girls basketball team had a big task at hand when it hosted state-ranked Greene Thursday evening. S-VE was in a must-win situation as it hoped to qualify for the Section IV playoffs.

Unfortunately for the upset-minded Panthers, it was not to be as the Trojans, ranked sixth in Class C with just one loss on their record, shrugged off a slow start to post a 42-21 victory.

S-VE trailed just 7-6 after one period of play, but slipped behind at the break, 19-11.

The Trojan defense then held their host to one third-quarter basket to build a 33-13 cushion heading into the fourth quarter.

Aubrie Kastenhuber led the Panthers, recording a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds. She made a pair of 3-pointers and dished out one assist. Raegan Sudnikovich added six points, five boards and two steals; and Katelyn Klym had two points and two rebounds.

Faith Brenchley had one point, four rebounds, two assists and two steals; Lilyanah Doolittle chipped in with one point and a pair of boards; Bri Predmore added one points; and Adriena Farmer pitched in with five rebounds and an assist.

Greene rode a balanced scoring attack to the win with Claire Flanagan scoring eight points. Four other players scored seven points each.

S-VE hosts Candor Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in a playoff to determine the IAC South Small School champion. The winner takes on Moravia on Friday, Feb. 16 at TC3 for the IAC Small School title.
