Generals stave off second-half attack by Wolves, win 57-48

Queensbury, NY – The Generals built a 13-point lead in the first half, but the SUNY Adirondack Timberwolves showed tenacity and nearly tied the game in the second stanza. Herkimer's end game saved the day, and Herkimer won 57-48 on Sunday afternoon.

wbball 02 10 2013 CraigHerkimer scored first when Victoria Seabrooks turned, jumped, and scored in the paint. Shileeka Williams stole the ball, sprinted, and scored. Then the Timberwolves sank two from the free throw line. That proved to be preview of the great foul shooting that was to come from the homestanding T-wolves.

The game was off to a fast start. Both teams were sprinting and both were scoring, although most of the scoring was by the Generals. The first three minutes of play saw 19 points posted on the board. Herkimer led 13-6.

Alyssa Craig hit for three from the left side. Aniya Webb ("A-Webb") added a three from the left of the arc's center, and Herkimer was ahead 19-8. Craig popped in another from long range, and it was 22-9. The visiting Generals had a 13-point lead.

It appeared that the Generals would soon tame the 'Wolves, but they could not. The scrappy Adirondack Five kept working and fighting.

Herkimer's offense cooled off, and the 'Wolves kept attacking. They were also doing very well from the foul line. They would end the first 20 minutes having made 14 of 16 attempts from the stripe.

The teams left the court with Herkimer ahead 32-26.

The second half began, and soon Adirondack converted a three-point play. 32-29.

Seabrooks took a pass from Williams and scored. Whitney Brown sank a free throw. She was playing with some caution because she had already been assessed three personal fouls. Brown drove into the paint and reclaimed an eight-point lead at 37-29.

wbball 02 10 2013 WilliamsWilliams hit another three, and, with the score 43-32 it looked as if Herkimer would pull away again, but the Wolves would not allow that to happen. Head Coach Larry Ramos' team continued to work and scrap like their namesake wolves. Herkimer led 45-34 at the midpoint of the half, but the 'Wolves were ready for a scoring run.

In less than four minutes, that 45-34 lead shrank to three points: 45-42. Then the 'Wolves intercepted a Herkimer pass, charged to the basket, and scored. They had whittled the visitors' lead to 45-44.

A-Webb was having a big day, and she sank a timely three. 48-44. Whitney Brown drove for two and it was 50-44, with 5:16 to play.

This Herkimer squad has become known for its solid end game, and they put another good finish on the game at Adirondack. Webb's two free throws and field goal put the Generals up 54-47. Williams hit for two. It was 56-47 with just a couple of minutes left. The 'Wolves added a point, but Webb matched it. The game ended 57-48. Herkimer won, having overcome Adirondack's highly commendable 22-for-28 performance from the line.

Herkimer's season record is now 18-6 – they have won 75% of their games. They will get right back to business on Monday when they host Schenectady CCC in a 6:00 p.m. contest.

Note: The Herkimer coaching staff had a different look for the Sunday game. Because the game had been postponed from Saturday, two assistant coaches were not available, so men's coaches Matt Lee and Hank Testa assisted Head Coach BJ Gouger in the women's game. Gouger then assisted Lee and Testa in the men's game.

Herkimer scoring: Randio 4, Williams 13, W. Brown 10, Webb 17, Seabrooks 4, Loucks 3, Craig 6 – Total 57
