Caz girls romp past Chittenango, 44-20

Defense again solid for 2-0 Lakers

— Against Marcellus, it worked again. The Mustangs never scored double-digit points in any quarter until the fourth, by which point Cazenovia, with its own modest attack, had gained a 33-22 edge.

Maggie Carpenter led the way, earning 15 points, and got ample support from Sally Langan, who added 10 points. For the Mustangs, Lauren Soule led with 14 points.

Before the loss to Cazenovia, Chittenango had moved to 2-0 on the young season last Tuesday night by going to Jordan-Elbridge and flattening the Eagles 73-18.

Catching a J-E side still recovering from the graduation of star center Molly Hourigan (who is now at Holy Cross), the Bears did whatever it wanted on offense in the first quarter with an astonishing 32 points.

And it continued all the way to halftime, where the Bears led 56-11. Kaitlin Antelmi set a career mark with 28 points, 10 more than the entire J-E roster, while Sierra Shafer and Kate Boyer both finished with 12 points. Sarah Moon added six points.

The Bears had to go to red-hot Skaneateles on Tuesday before returning home Friday to get its own shot at Marcellus. On those same nights, Cazenovia would host Phoenix and visit J-E.
