MAHOPAC, N.Y. – Mahopac High School’s girls basketball team may have posted their most impressive win of the season last Wednesday (Feb. 5), as the Indians rolled to a 64-57 league victory over Our Lady of Lourdes, handing the Lady Warriors their only league loss of the season.
Lourdes (14-4, 7-1) led 19-15 after a quarter, but the Indians defense held the host to 9 points in the second, with the ‘Pac taking a 30-28 lead into the break.
Mahopac (14-6, 7-3) won the third (19-17) and fourth (15-12) and hung on for the win.
Coach Chuck Scozzafava said he wasn’t surprised.
“I really felt like we should have beat them the first time (a 67-65 OLL win) we played,” Scozzafava said. “We just missed a few chances at the end. But this time we played well, and finished it.”
Caitlyn O’Boyle led the way with 14 points for Mahopac, Mia Klammer added 13, and Kristina Rush had 12.
Mahopac honored seniors April Heady and Olivia Conlin on Monday on Senior Night, where the Indians concluded regular-season play with a 38-34 win over John Jay of East Fishkill.
