Skaneateles got that task accomplished, rolling past Cazenovia 60-28. What was a close, low-scoring contest turned against the visitors when Skaneateles went on an 18-0 run that covered the end of the first quarter and most of the second period.
Trailing 26-8 at halftime, Cazenovia could not get anyone to generate consistent offense. Jocelyn Golden led with just eight points, while Burbidge and Danielle Tedesco each got six points and Kaylee Cunningham managed six points.
Meanwhile, Skaneateles pulled further away with a deep, well-balanced effort, Joanna Dobrovosky setting the pace as she got 13 points, 10 rebounds, nine blocks and seven steals. Nine different players converted field goals and six of them had six points or more.
This was the first of four straight road games for Cazenovia, who doesn’t play at Buckley Gym again until Jan. 7. The Lakers visit Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Tuesday and go to Cortland Dec. 20 before taking a two-week holiday break from game action.
