ALBANY — Too much Carly Boland.
Way too much Sydney Brown.
“They both were in attack mode,” Shenendehowa girls’ basketball head coach Joe Murphy said after his team’s 69-42 win Friday against Albany.
In a showcase featuring two of the best teams in the Suburban Council and Section II, the Shenendehowa duo made sure their team returned home with its undefeated record intact. Boland scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, while Brown went for 22 points and 12 rebounds in front of an enthusiastic Albany crowd.
“The atmosphere here was great,” Boland said. “So many people, so many fans.”
“I enjoy these types of games,” Brown said.
The two squads had not played since Shenendehowa (12-0, 14-0) upset Albany (11-2, 14-2) in the 2014 Section II Class AA title game. Early on in Friday’s meeting, the two clubs appeared destined for a barn-burner. Each team made its first two field goals — plus four free throws apiece — in the opening minutes before Shenendehowa gained control.
