CBA, J-D girls both earn Friday wins

Basketball Brothers, Rams both move to 11-1

A week removed from their first of two clashes this winter, the Christian Brothers Academy and Jamesville-DeWitt girls basketball teams both found more success.

For the Brothers, a seven-day layoff did little to curb the team’s momentum as it went to Fowler and breezed to a 56-30 victory over the Falcons.

Over the course of the first three periods, CBA (11-1) steadily wore Fowler’s defenses down, and that translated into a 51-24 edge, which allowed the starters to rest late.

Marisa Romeo, closing in on the 1,000-point mark, added 14 points to that total on this night, with Julie Cuomo getting a team-high 16 points. No one else had more than five points, but seven other players did contribute at least one point to the cause.

In J-D’s case, it had to show the ability to bounce back from a defeat after CBA topped them 43-37 in that Jan. 11 showdown.

The Red Rams came through with a thorough effort in last Friday’s game against Cortland, ripping past the Purple Tigers 56-33 in large part because it started so well.

Cortland could not solve J-D’s pressure in the first quarter, and the Rams streaked out to a 15-4 lead. Steadily, the margin kept growing, and a 16-8 push through the third period extended the lead to 48-24, allowing J-D to cruise the rest of the way.

Cydney Goodrum, often fouled, made nine of her 13 points at the free-throw line, while Kayleigh Cavanaugh also gained 13 points. Alyssa Robens contributed 10 points as Nyree Mitchell managed six points. Eight different J-D players managed at least one field goal as, like CBA, it improved to 11-1.

The Red Rams step out of league play this week to face Corcoran and Gates-Chili (Section V), while CBA rests and plans for its return to action Jan. 29, against Fulton.
