Hornets get key CVAC hoops win over Chiefs

SARANAC — It was a tight game at half time, with Saranac trailing by just one, but in the end Plattsburgh High was too strong and pulled away for a 53-41 victory Thursday in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference girls’ basketball.

Marle Curle was strong throughout the whole game for Plattsburgh, getting 27 points on the night. Saranac coach Tim Newell said Curle took over the game and couldn’t be stopped.

“We tried to contain her the whole game, and unfortunately we were unable to do that,” Newell said. “She is a hard player to stop, and when she gets in a rhythm, she’s hard to defend.”

Olivia Carlsson added 11 points for the Hornets.

Saranac was within 22-21 at the half, and Newell said he was proud of the way his team battled.

“We played hard (Thursday), especially Kristen Napper,” Newell said. “I couldn’t be more proud of the way she has played as a senior this year.”

Napper finished the game with six points. Victoria Phaneuf paced the Chiefs with 18.
