Greene 47, Unadilla Valley 26

NEW BERLIN - The lack of games had little effect on Greene in the first quarter Thursday night at Unadilla Valley.

Playing just their third game in 22 days, the Trojans (8-1) jumped out to a 15-1 first-quarter lead en route to their eighth win.                     

"We were really aggressive to start the game, and we made it a point to come out with intensity," said Greene coach Dave Gorton. "To start the game we were very focused, and had some outstanding offensive sets."

Payton Yahner had six points in the opening quarter, and Olivia Kennedy netted four.

Yahner scored all 17 of her points through three quarters of action, while Kennedy and Abby Yahner scored nine apiece.

"It was good to get back on the court tonight, and we have a lot of games scheduled," Gorton said, who has had multiple game cancellations. "It's (this season) been very weird. I've never had a season where so many games were stacked at the end."

Kadence York led UV (3-10) with 11 points.
