Bethlehem upsets Amsterdam

It what has to be the biggest upset in sectional play thus far the two-seed Bethlehem Eagles beat Amsterdam 51-45 in the class AA semifinals at HVCC Wednesday night.
Amsterdam was undefeated and is the No.1 ranked team in the state. The Rams had also just moved into the 24 spot nationally in the USA Today top 25 poll before the loss.
When you think about it the outcome shouldn't be that much of a shocker because Bethlehem is a talented, well coached athletic team. Meg Olsen , Taylor Teal and Alex McCullough are as solid a trio as there is in section II.
The key for the Eagles was their defense holding Amsterdam to just 45 points and stars Megan Gaugler and Brittany Stahura to just 17 combined points.
The Eagles are the No.10 team in the state and their only two losses came to Shenedehowa, who they will face in the AA finals. The Lady Plainsmen advanced thanks to a 45-29 victory over Albany. Tip-off for the all- Suburban Council AA finals is 5:15 at HVCC on Saturday.

In class B action the Hoosic Valley girls got more than they bargained for from the Lady Riders of Ichabod Crane but escaped with a 39-37 win. Ichabod Crane didn't back down from the Indians physical play and almost pulled off a huge upset. Clutch foul shooting in the waning moments of the game and tough defense that forced an off balance last second shot from Ichabod helped Hoosic Valley hold on. They'll play Cohoes in what figures to be a great match up of contrasting styles. The bruising physical defense of the Indians against the long range, run and gun Tigers. Tip-off is 12p.m. Saturday at HVCC.
