JV Girls Basketball Beats Potsdam

Monday night the Canton JV Girls Basketball team hosted the Potsdam Sandstoners in the first round of this year’s “Route 11 Rivalry,” winning by a score of 48-19. 

The Bears jumped out to a quick 11-3 lead against  a shorthanded Potsdam team that has been hit by the injury bug and only had six eligible players dressed. 

“Potsdam had a short bench tonight but I really like what Coach Cruikshank is trying to do with them.  They will be a different team the next time we see them,” Coach Mike Wentworth said.   

The junior Bears were again led by the Dynamic Duo in eighth grader Ava Hoy with 19 points, 9 rebounds and Amelia Rodee 14 points, 12 rebounds. 

“They both have been playing very well the last few games and I like how much better they have been rebounding and protecting the rim,” Wentworth said.   

Rounding out the scoring for Canton on the night; Mattie Porter four points, Lindsey Filiatrault and Allysa Jacob three points, Camryn Sipher and Kayla Larrabee (six rebounds) two points, Courtney Peters one point.  

The 7-3 Bears will be traveling to Ogdensburg on Thursday night to face the Blue Devils. Game time 5:30 p.m.
