Stretched out over two periods, the Mustangs got outscored 23-7. No Marcellus player scored in double figures as Tessa Mosher led with eight points, while Molly MacLachlan got seven points. Meghan Witkowski and Rylie Spicer each got six points. Liverpool’s Rachael Windhausen led both sides with 17 points and nine rebounds.
Solvay also tumbled back in the wake of its own tournament title, shut down by a rested, refreshed Skaneateles side in last Thursday night’s 49-22 defeat.
Against a Lakers side that hadn’t played in two weeks, Solvay managed just a few field goals in the first quarter – and nothing for the rest of the half, blanked in the second period as the Lakers’ defense proved stifling.
Trailing 23-7 at the break, the Bearcats never recovered, despite Julie Gardner eventually picking up 10 points and Chelsie Delperuto adding seven points. Elizabeth Lane, with 13 points, and Joanna Dobrovosky, with 10 points, led the Lakers’ efforts.
