Today, the 4th-grade Edgemont boys bounced back from a tough loss at Westlake on Friday night, where they struggled against an aggressive 2-3 zone. Coach David Scagnelli noted that the team turned the ball over too frequently.
But at the friendly confines of EHS on Sunday, this group of upstart ballers from the Edgemont Union Free School District at Greenburgh made a statement.
Early, both teams struggled to find the range. The score stood at a frigid Edgemont 4, Byram Hills 2 after 7 minutes of play. But the Edgemonters clearly had found a rhythm that was absent Friday night: solid defense, good ball movement, and quality looks. One sensed it was only a matter of time.
And indeed that was the case. As the 2nd-quarter started, the shots started falling and Edgemont stretched the lead to 14-4 at intermission. An explosive third quarter opened the floodgates and put the game out of reach as the home team coasted through the 4th-quarter to seal a 32-6 win.
Scoring was led by Cam Siegal with 10, followed by Avery Yee with 8 and Jacob Naya with 4. David Rosen led the way on the boards with 8 rebounds, followed by Jacob Naya with 6 and Wells Cunningham with 5.
Coach Scags and his 4th-grade squad will prepare this week for a home and home against New Castle on Friday and Saturday.
