Heuvelton’s tenacious defense built an early lead, then came up big in final seconds of a 44-43 victory over the Hermon-DeKalb Green Demons in a thrilling regular-season ending. Heuvelton’s Logan Tallman slung a two-pointer from just inside the arc with 10.3 seconds remaining. The Bulldogs’ defense then tipped Bridgit Rust’s desperation shot with 1.3 seconds left to spoil Hermon-DeKalb’s bid for an undefeated West Division finish. Heuvelton secured the win and second place in the standings, while handing the Green Demons their only divisional loss in the final game of the regular season. In a game broadcast on North Country SportsNet, Heuvelton broke out to a 17-7 lead by forcing the Green Demons into nearly a dozen turnovers in the first 12 minutes. However in the run-and-gun contest, the Demons clawed their way back to within a bucket, 25-23 at halftime. Heuvelton started the second half keeping Hermon-DeKalb at a bit of a distance, leading by as many as nine points before suffering a scoring drought as well. The lead changed hands seven times before the Bulldogs emerged victorious. Olivia St. Pierre led Heuvelton with 12 points and nine rebounds. Lexi Weidner contributed eight points, while Maddie St. Pierre and Logan Tallman scored seven points each.

In the first half, Heuvelton led by as many as 14 points, and closed out the half with a 23-13 lead over the Hammond Red Devils. But no lead is ever secure against the Red Devils. Cassi Whalen scored the lone field goal for Hammond through the first 12 minutes. Whalen added two jumpers, while Courtney Bova and Mikayla Horton went 4-for-4 from the free-throw line to close out the first half to keep the Devils around. Whalen scored 12 points in the first half and 14 points overall. Slowly in the second half, Hammond chipped away. While still notching only two field goals in the third quarter, the Devils produced six points from the free-throw line and relied heavily on defense to stay in contention by holding the state-ranked #12 Bulldogs 10-6. Heuvelton had chances to put the game away in the second half, but managed just six points in the third quarter and was outscored 19-13 in the final frame. Courtney Bova scored 14 of her 16 points in the second half, including a three-ball and five straight free throws to help pull Hammond into the lead 33-32 with five minutes remaining. In the tug-of-war down the stretch, Heuvelton squared the game at 37-37 with just over three minutes remaining. The lead changed hands four times. The Red Devils used a 23-for-32 night from the free-throw line to close out the victory. Heuvelton was led by Maddi St. Pierre with 15 points. Logan Tallman added nine, while Olivia St. Pierre scored five and Lexi Weidner chipped in a crucial three-ball in the final run. The Hammond win tightened the top of the West Division standings. Hermon-DeKalb(10-0) opened up a two-game lead, while Heuvelton (8-2) fell two games back with Hammond just another half-game behind.

Jenna Dufrane connected for 16 points, while Barrett added 14 for Brushton-Moira to guide a 64-47 victory at Parishville. Miranda Collins tossed in 12 points to lead the P-H Panthers.

Chateaugay’s Katie Beach (13) controls the ball while being defended by Madrid-Waddington’s Tess Knight (5). In a scrappy game marked by tight defense and turnovers, Chateaugay pulled out to a 19-8 halftime lead, which would prove to be the difference in the game.

For both teams most of the game was played from the charity stripe with each squad connecting on 11 free throws.

The Hammond Red Devils had the Hermon-DeKalb Green Demons on the ropes, but scoring became scarce for just a few minutes and the Devils could not provide the knockout punch in the second half. Hermon-DeKalb escaped with a 51-50 victory in a key West Division victory. The Demons will get their chance to avenge the loss next week when the two teams play again in a rescheduled game at DeKalb. The Demons improved to 7-0, 9-1 overall and took a one-game lead over Heuvelton in the West standings. Hammond presented a balanced offensive attack in the first half to build a 28-17 lead by intermission. When Courtney Bova struck a three-pointer early in the third quarter, Hammond’s lead escalated to 16. However, the Green Demons fired off three three-pointers in the third quarter trim the deficit to 38-33. With the Red Devil offense struggling to score, Hermon-DeKalb’s Hunter Hitchman and Bridget Rust each tossed down trifectas that finally give the Green Demons a 39-38 lead early in the final quarter. While the teams traded buckets over the next four minutes, Hermon-DeKalb was able to build separation, when Hitchman knocked down four consecutive free throws with 1:16 remaining. Aly Crosby scored a pair of buckets in the final minute to draw the Red Devils within three points. Hammond’s Paige Frisian rainbowed a three-ball at the buzzer to finish the game, but a point short at 51-50. Hammond Coach Shawn Dack told North Country SportsNet, “It was (a good game). We had them. But it slipped through our fingers. But we are coming.” Hitchman closed out the game with a game-best 18 points, including 9-for-10 from the free-throw line. Cassi Whalen led the Red Devils with 13 points, while Frisina added 10 and Courtney Bova scored eight.
