Bainbridge-Guilford 47, Greene 35
BAINBRIDGE – Since an early-season division loss to Delhi, Bainbridge-Guilford is just two games from running the table in Midstate Athletic Conference play.
The Bobcats won their 10th straight game Thursday night getting a double-double from freshman Megan Palmatier. The young forward was tough around the basket drawing numerous fouls on her way to a 17-point, 10-rebound night against the Trojans.
“She worked really hard on her post game on the JV last year, and she’s been a strong player for us,” said B-G coach Bob Conway of Palmatier. “She’ll hold her ground.”
The Trojans, winners of four straight coming in, likely saw their opportunity of winning the MAC go by the wayside, but can still finish among the top two in the league if it wins out. One of Greene’s remaining league games is against first-place Delhi. “We’re not conceding anything,” said Greene coach Dave Gorton.
B-G led by 11 at halftime, and quickly pushed the lead to 15 points early in the third. Palmatier drained two free throws after getting fouled on an offensive rebound, and Marissa Thornton had a steal and a layup to make it 28-13.
Greene battled back to an 11-point deficit by the end of the third. Katie Carey hit a step-back three ball for the Trojans, and Alyssa Sands pumped in a pull-up 12-footer with 45 seconds left in the quarter.
