(Troy, NY)


 -After three quarters, in a two point game with fifteen lead changes, the girls Class C NYSPHSAA title game looked like it was headed towards a big finish. That is, until Cambridge used a 9-0 fourth quarter run and held Watkins Glens scoreless for six plus minutes to capture the title 57-43.


-Cambridge held a slim 41-39 lead with just under six minutes left in the game when Sophie Phillips hit Stacia Epler for a monster wing three pointer to push the Indians lead to five points, 44-39. The next Cambridge trip down the floor Sophie Phillips again dished off this time to her sister Lilly for a lay-in to extend the margin and help seal the victory.
