Leland & Gray hosted Woodstock during a girls’ basketball game on Tuesday, Dec. 28, 2021. Woodstock would win 40-31.

TOWNSHEND — The Woodstock varsity girls basketball team outscored Leland & Gray 8-0 in the fourth quarter and left town with a 40-31 victory on Tuesday evening.

The teams were tied at 13-13 at the end of the first quarter and were deadlocked at 27-27 at halftime. But the hosts were limited to just four points over the last 16 minutes.

Maggie Parker, who drilled three trifectas, paced the Rebels with 12 points, five steals and a couple of blocks. Mary Sanderson chipped in with six points and Hannah Greenwood added five of her own.

On one play late in the third quarter, Greenwood pulled down a defensive rebound and dished to Hannah Landers, and she found Parker, who passed to Sanderson for an easy layup. On another, Abigail Emerson forced the issue and pulled up for a transition hoop in close.

Abby Towle was the defensive standout for Leland & Gray, shadowing Woodstock’s best shooter throughout the second half.
