Madison Stahl fired 20 points and dished five assists. Sisters Caitlin Pelkey and Lauren Pelkey combined for 17 points in the winning effort.

Willsboro 40, Schroon Lake 21

PORT HENRY — The Warriors (3-4) jumped out to a 27-point halftime lead, while senior center Amanda Mahoney (11) and forward Renee Marcotte (8) combined for 19 markers.

“We committed turnover after turnover, but came out strong in the second half,” Schroon Lake head coach Rich Hall said. “(Mahoney) was strong on the glass and Willsboro controlled the boards all game. We were missing two post players and a guard, and without them in our lineup, we’re young. Hopefully, it’s a learning experience.”

Lindsay Reynolds led the Wildcats (4-4) in scoring for the second straight day, totaling eight points and 10 rebounds.
