Ballston Spa Scotties' Rally Falls Short Against Guilderland

By | Sports

BALLSTON SPA– Since opening their 2012-2013 campaign with a 45-39 victory on the road against non-conference opponent Cohoes, it’s been a tough season for the Ballston Spa girls’ varsity basketball team. The Scotties had lost seven-straight entering their January 8 matchup with Suburban Council foe Guilderland, including a one-point loss to Mohonasen on January 4. The Scotties fought hard to end their losing streak, but would drop their eighth-straight game to the Lady Dutchmen by a final score of 35-33.


Guilderland would jump out to a 14-6 lead by the end of the first quarter. They relied heavily on their sophomore guard Caitlin Corbett, who would score a season-high 18 points to lead all scorers. Corbett accounted for over 50 percent of the team’s total scoring. Shannon Mackesey and Jody Madsen finished behind Corbett with four points apiece. They also held Ballston Spa to just 10 points in the first half, and entered the second half leading 24-10.


Ballston Spa though, would not go quietly. The Scotties stormed back in the third quarter, putting up 16 points while holding Guilderland to just two points, to tie the ball game at 26-26 heading into the pivotal fourth quarter. In the end, Guilderland would leave with the two-point victory.


Ballston Spa would get big contributions from Paige Gallo, who led her team with 11 points. Sydney Hansen would hit two three-pointers and finish with 10 points. Taylor McMahon also chipped in with a three-pointer, her only basket of the night.


For Guilderland, they move their record to 4-3 in Suburban Council play to go along with their 5-4 overall record this season. They’re currently tied for fourth in the South Division with Columbia.


For Ballston Spa, this is their seventh-straight loss, and the team is still looking for their first win in Suburban Council play this season. They are 0-7 against conference opponents, and 1-8 overall.


Ballston Spa returns to action January 11, as they’ll head down Route 50 to face Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake on the road. They then return home to face their rivals to the north, Saratoga Springs, January 15.
