  • Keshequa and Wayland-Cohoton clashed at the Nest to close out the month of January in girls hoop action on Jan. 31. The game started sluggishly on both sides, but then Keshequa’s Alex Flint caught fire both offensively and defensively, scoring 28 points on the night to lead the Indians to a 52-40 victory over the homestanding Golden Eagles.
    “Pete Piraino’s teams are known for their swarming defense,” Way-Co skipper John Crossett said. “They’ve done it for years and they do it very well.”
    The game opened in spurts as Wayland-Cohocton scored the first five points of the contest, the a Pete Piraino time out resulted in a reversal of the momentum as Keshequa would score the next nine points to take a five- point lead as Alex Flint scored five of those points and then Kristen Jackson would bury a huge three-pointer. Diane Cork and Megan Cheasman scored five and four, respectively, in the second for the maroon and gold, but Keshequa extended their lead as Alex Flint scored seven more, leading a 15-9 charge, giving the orange and black an eight-point, 24-16 lead at the half.
    In the third, Wayland-Cohocton briefly came to life scoring a flurry of baskets to trim the Indians lead to one point at 24-23 as they ran off the first seven points of the second half. Jade Harris and Mckenzie Weber each had multiple buckets in the run. Way-Co saw five players score in the fourth, while Alex Flint was in the midst of another 12-point burst, leading the Indians to some breathing room and an eventual 52-40 victory.
    Keshequa (10-4, 2-3) was led by Alex Flint’s 28 points, three rebounds, three steals and an assist. Hannah Acciari scored six with four boards, Kristen Jackson had five points with nine rebounds and two steals. Kate Forrester had six points. Lindsay Piraino netted three with a steal. Shannon Gordinier had two points and two steals, while Gabrielle DiAgelo played with an abdominal strain and scored two points with two rebounds and a pair of steals.
    For Wayland-Cohocton (6-8, 1-5), McKenzie Weber led the way with 10 points. Jade Harris scored eight points, all in the second half. Megan Cheasman also had eight points. Diane Cork scored five. Courtney Smith and Taylor Welytok had four each. Alyssa Recktenwald had one point in the setback.
