Hoosac Valley 73, Mount Everett 22

CHESHIRE — Hoosac Valley (8-0) put together a dominant defensive performance in its win over Mount Everett.

"We didn't really change our style," Hoosac coach Ron Wojcik said of the 'Canes defensive efforts on Carpenter. "We put a couple things in and mixed a couple things at her, but we really stayed with what we do press-wise.

"They missed some layups against our press. We were fortunate. Overall we were pleased. One of our better halves for sure."

Pittsfield 69, Drury 48

Bella Aitken got to the line in bunches and led the way with 15 points. Johnahyah Curry and Jordyn Lummus put up matching 12-point nights and Taea Bramer finished with 10.
