Siobhan Ryan again led Sacred Heart with 25 points.

Gianna Hoose led Southwestern with 21 points while Reece Beaver added 11.

T’BIRDS REBOUND NICELY

“What a difference a day makes.”

Those were Chautauqua Lake head coach Bill Persons’ initial thoughts after watching his Thunderbirds beat Franklinville, 64-39, on Saturday afternoon at the Southwestern Thanksgiving Shootout.

The win over the defending New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class D champions came less than 24 hours after Chautauqua Lake was outscored 24-4 in the opening quarter of a loss to Sacred Heart.

The opening eight minutes were much different Saturday as the Thunderbirds outscored the Panthers 18-8 behind 13 points, including three 3-pointers, from sophomore Lily Woodis.

Woodis finished with a game-high 27 points, one off her career high of 28 set last season. Sophomore Alexis Jacobson matched a career high and school record with 13 assists for the Thunderbirds.

“Lily ran the floor really well,” Persons said. “Lexi and Lily find each other all the time.”

Junior Hannah Weise chipped in 12 points and 11 rebounds while fellow junior Rebecca Henry had 10 points and 14 rebounds for Chautauqua Lake (1-1).

“I knew that Maple Grove scored inside early on against Franklinville on Friday,” Persons said. “I had an inclination that we’d be able to get inside a little bit so we focused on that.”

Dani Haskell led Franklinville (1-1) with 24 points while Abby McCoy had 8.

“I didn’t know what Sacred Heart was like, but I wanted to get a win this weekend,” Persons said. “It made not difference which game. This definitely took a bad taste out of our mouths. It was a team effort all around.”
