JV Score: Canton 36, Gouverneur 25 on Wednesday in Canton
The Canton Girls JV Basketball team hosted the Gouverneur Wildcats at Jerry Hourihan Gymnasium on Wednesday night. The Cats came into town with only one loss after the Bears upset them two week ago on their own floor. The game started out as a back and forth contest and continued that way until the fourth quarter when the young Bears went on a 16-3 run to end up winning the game 36-25.
The junior Bears were led in scoring by Winnie Downs who chipped in 9 points/8 Rebounds and fellow sophomore Vivian Coburn who contributed 8 points/10 assist in the winning cause. The eight grade “Olivia Duo” of Olivia Francey and Olivia White also had 5 points in the game. Rounding out the well balanced scoring attack was Jenna Larrabee 3 points/ 7 Rebounds, Tessa Alguire 2 points/ 9 Rebounds and Sara Aldous 2 points/3 steals.
“That was a fun game to be part of. The girls really had to scrap for every bucket and rebound. The difference in the game was that we valued every possession in the second half. We stopped turning the ball over and gave ourselves a chance to score.” The Bears will continue their road stand on Friday as the Massena Red Raiders will be in town. The Raiders are the Bears only loss of the season after beating them by one point earlier in the year. Tip Off is scheduled for 5:30pm.
Varsity Score: Canton 55, Gouverneur 42 The Bears were led in scoring by Ava Hoy who tickled the twin for 29 points and 12 Rebounds. Callie Klassen also netted 9 points for the Varsity Bears.
