Eagles escape Indians in OT

BEEKMANTOWN — After a back-and-forth affair in the final minutes of regulation, the Beekmantown girls’ basketball team had enough of Peru’s late-game dramatics.

The Eagles (15-2, 14-2) received point production from five players in the extra session, while Shannon Ryan had a game-high 31 points for a 60-51 win in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference action Tuesday night.

“We had a six-point lead down the stretch, but they responded with a couple of 3-pointers to tie it back up,” Beekmantown coach Greg Waters said. “Peru is much-improved, and they played us with a sense of urgency.”

Mary Mazzella’s floater in the lane with five seconds remaining in the fourth quarter forced overtime.

But the Eagles remained composed and according to Waters, received unselfish play on the offensive end.

“Our team went 6-for-8 from the free-throw line in overtime and Kristine McKinnley had four points,” Waters said. “It was nice to finally clinch a first-round bye.”

McKinnley contributed 12 points, while Grace Kelly had nine markers in the win.

Peru’s Brianna Hackett knocked down 15 of her 17 points in the second half, including three 3-point field goals.

Mazzella and little sister Meghan added 14 and 11 points, respectively.
