OLEAN — Sophomore Sara Pfeiffer poured in 51 points as Olean downed Fredonia, 74-53, in Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Athletic Association Division 1 West girls basketball action Monday.

“She had an amazing game,” Fredonia coach Carol Zirkle said. “She’s a very good shooter. She got to the line a lot and made eight 3-pointers. She can score from anywhere and we couldn’t get the ball out of her hands.”

Fredonia (6-3, 3-1) was outscored in all but one quarter, including falling behind 26-12 after the first.

“We didnt do what we needed to do defensively; we didn’t box out and offensively we didn’t follow the game plan,” Zirkle said. “We didn’t get the ball inside like we needed to and we missed a lot of shots.

“I’m disappointed, but the girls worked hard,” Zirkle continued. “Give it to Olean. They executed and made their shots.”
