ELLENBURG — The Northern Adirondack Bobcats’ heavy full-court press was just too much for Lake Placid to handle in the Section VII Class C semifinal game, Monday, where the Bobcats pushed to a dominant 64-22 win.

The duo of Abby Peryea and Alexis Belrose led Northern Adirondack with 14 points apiece, with Belrose hitting one three-pointer. Abigail Peryea had 12 points to add, and Isabella Gilmore nine. Sophia Charland also tacked on six points.

“Our girls worked hard with their man-to-man pressure defense,” Northern Adirondack coach Dennis LaBarge said. “Senior Abigail Peryea had a fantastic all-around game for us tonight.”

For Lake Placid, Nadia Phillip led her team with eight points, and LaBarge said she played well in the game.

With the loss, the Blue Bombers end their season with a 13-8 record. The win advances Northern Adirondack to the Class C championship game where they will take on AuSable Valley in Saranac on Friday, at 5:30 p.m.
