Just before that, the F-M girls team welcomed back Kiley Shoemaker from a foot injury that had sidelined her for the season-opening Oswego Tournament.
Shoemaker only had two points against Chittenango, but her presence inspired the rest of the Hornets, who used a 23-4 burst through the second quarter to pull away from the Bears.
Charlotte Beers led with 13 points, while Madison Beck earned 10 points. Rachel Miller (eight points) and Lauren Getman (six points) were close behind.
Having improved to 2-1, F-M heads north for this weekend’s Coaches vs. Cancer Tournament at Central Square, where it will take on CBA in Friday’s opening round.
Meanwhile, the boys Hornets go to Baldwinsville Tuesday, have its home opener Thursday against Auburn before a key early-season test next Saturday at Corcoran, who is off to its own 2-0 start.
