McCabe leads AuSable Valley past Northern Adirondack

CLINTONVILLE — The AuSable Valley upperclassmen played well on Senior Night, but it was a freshman who made the biggest impact.

Madison McCabe scored a team-high 16 points and the Patriots avenged an earlier loss with a hard-earned 55-51 victory over Northern Adirondack in Northern Basketball League play Thursday night.

“McCabe came to play, scoring 16 points and hitting big shots on the perimeter in the second half to help us maintain the lead and secure the victory,” AuSable Valley coach Roger Long said. “It was Senior Night, and Logan Snow, Taylor Saltus and Bryce Douglass all played a good game.”

Meghan Strong and Snow added nine points each for the Patriots.

AuSable Valley jumped out to a 21-15 lead in a high-scoring first quarter and was able to hold off the Bobcats.

Taylor Durnin scored a game-high 18 points to lead the Bobcats, while Jillian Scott had 15 points and Magan Magee, 11.

“NAC made some great adjustments at the half, taking away penetration and forcing us to shoot from the perimeter,” Long said. “I can’t say enough good things about what coach (Jessica) Barnhart has done for their program. She is taking them to a different level and her players really compete.

“Taylor Durnin had a great game and really kept them in the game. I’m glad we were able to come out with a win in a hard-fought game.”

Saranac jumped out to a 23-9 halftime lead.

“Saranac played a great game,” Peru coach Eric Dubay said. “They hustle, work hard and are a very scrappy team.

“I thought our girls came out tonight and played very hard. They hustled for loose balls and played hard on the defensive end of the floor. We just have to be able to knock down more shots.

“I thought Maria Remillard, in her last home regular-season game, played well. Mazzella was able to get it going in the third quarter but had to sit after some foul calls.”
