BINGHAMTON – Bainbridge-Guilford, playing perhaps at its highest level all season, threw a hefty scare into defending Class C state champion Elmira Notre Dame Saturday evening at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.
The Crusaders, who have not lost a game to a Class C team the past two seasons, needed a three-point play from Mallory Lawes and two free throws from Margie McKinery over the final 83 seconds to pull out a Section IV title win over the Bobcats.
“Our kids came out and played incredible; I’m just very disappointed for them,” said B-G coach Bob Conway. “We executed what we had practiced: We kept Lawes from scoring, and Marcie Day did a tremendous job on her. We also wanted to keep Agan (Kate) off the glass. We had some opportunities, the ball just didn’t bounce our way a couple times.”
