Salamanca 60, Franklinville 49

SALAMANCA ‹ The Lady Warriors finally put it all together just in time to
topple league-leading Franklinville on Tuesday night.
With an admirable defensive performance on center Samantha Kopp, Katie Auge
(17 points, including a career-high three treys) and the Lady Warriors led
by as many as 20 points in a 60-49 victory. Kopp, clearly frustrated with
the smothering defense, finished with 23 points and 16 reboards ‹ but scored
just seven in the second half ‹ entirely from the free throw line.
The loss was the first league defeat for Kopp and New York State-ranked
Franklinville.
³She got her points, but no open looks,² said Lady Warrior coach Colleen
Wiedman. ³Katie (Auge) did an awesome job,² she added, while at the same
time her team was able to play straight-up man-to-man defense without
resorting to any gimmicks to lock down Kopp.
After leading by just one after the first quarter, Salamanca expanded the
cushion to 10 at the break as Ashley Abrams continued to look resurgent
after breaking the 1,000 point barrier over the holiday break. She finished
with 16 points in just three quarters of play. Brittany Haines added 12
points.
The win pushes the Lady Warriors to 5-2, 3-0 in league play and gives them
sole command of first place in the CCAC II East.
Auge also had three rebounds, two assists and two steals.
