J-D girls denied unbeaten regular season by CBA

Hot-shooting first half helps Brothers to 62-50 win

— Then the J-D boys flattened Phoenix 85-31 on Tuesday night as Coleman, with 23 points, led the way. Kinsey produced 14 points, with Cavanaugh adding 13 points.

Meanwhile, both of CBA’s teams defeated Fulton. In the boys’ 65-48 conquest of the Red Raiders, the Brothers steadily built its margin throughout the night as Russo hit five 3-pointers, accounting for most of his 19 points.

Haines worked inside for 14 points, while Kevin Bailey had 11 points. Jack Pfohl and Cam MacPherson had eight points apiece.

When the CBA girls took out Fulton 57-44, it took charge with a 20-10 romp through the second quarter, Romeo, with 17 points, again led the way, with Johnson adding 12 points. Julie Cuomo hit double figures with 11 points and Michelle Wiese contributed 10 points.

Then the Brothers beat Mexico by a nearly identical score, 57-39, in the make-up of a Jan. 13 snow postponement, outscoring the Tigers 23-7 in the opening period and leading 39-13 by halftime. Romeo had 20 points, with Johnson (13 points) and Olivia Pitonzo (10 points) close behind.

Both of J-D’s teams have top seeds in Class A and will play quarterfinals on Friday night, the girls meeting Whitesboro and the boys getting Whitesboro or Oneida.

CBA, meanwhile, is the no. 8 seed in Class AA boys play, hosting Corcoran in the opening round Tuesday to see who gets a shot at top seed Utica Proctor, while the girls, with the no. 4 seed, host no. 5 seed Liverpool in Thursday’s AA quarterfinal.
