The Frontier Regional girls basketball team pulled out a win over Southwick, 43-30, on the road on Thursday night. 

“I told the girls this is the type of game that can get away from us,” Frontier coach Dave Machon said. “Winless team on the road.”

The Red Hawks could never get comfortably ahead against the Rams but did enough to return to South Deerfield with a victory.

“It never felt like we had the upper hand and that they could come back at any time,” Machon said.  “It was a good test.” 

Amelia Sobieski registered a double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds. 

Kaitlyn Mackin also reached double-figures with 10 points. 

Marie Diemand chipped in with nine, along with Meghan Self, who added eight for the Red Hawks.

Easthampton 48, Pioneer 44– In a back-and-forth contest, some late free throws by the Eagles sunk the visiting Panthers in Easthampton. 

Paige Loughman led the Panthers with 21 points while Alina Cecunjanin scored a career-high 11 points.

 Steph Scoville notched a double-double with 10 points and 14 rebounds. 

Pope Francis 41, Athol 39 – Facing a deficit at halftime, the Red Raiders made a run at the Cardinals in the second half but could not complete the comeback at Mallet Gymnasium. 

Looking to add another clutch shot to her resume, Kendall Deleo tried to send the game to overtime but the shot missed.

Haley Bigwood grabbed an offensive rebound off Deleo’s miss but left the putback attempt just short.

Bigwood scored 21 points for the Red Raiders with Taylor Cleveland adding another 10. 

 ​​​​​Mahar  55, Smith Academy 29  –  The Senators, led by a scoring outburst from Micalyn Mailloux, cruised past the Falcons in Orange. 

Mailloux dropped 21 points and had it dialed in from distance with five 3-pointers. 

“We found the outside shooting in the third when they went to a zone,” Mahar coach Larry Fisher said. 

Mahar led 24-17 at halftime but a huge third quarter secured the home win.  Delaney Parker (nine points) and Courtney Page (13 points) chipped in offensively for Mahar. 

Page added eight rebounds with Saylor Kegans leading the team with 10.

Parker was a force on defense for the Senators with nine steals.

Hopkins 47,  Turners Falls 25 –  The Thunder stayed close through the intermission but could not hang with the Golden Hawks in the second half in the road loss.

Taylor Greene and Lily Spera carried the offense for Turners Falls, with nine and eight points respectively. 

Kendra Campbell missed the game with an injury sustained Wednesday night against Mohawk Trail.

Duggan Academy 73, Pioneer 59 – The Panthers got 20 points from Troy Emond, but fell on the road to Duggan Academy. 

Jared Hubbard (10 points) and Ryan Potter (11 points) also reached double-figures for the Panthers.  

A 6-for-20 night at the free throw line hurt the Panthers.
