WINDSOR — Backed by a rowdy student section dressed up in the holiday spirit on Thursday, the Windsor High girls basketball team overcame a slow start and dominated the final three quarters, pulling away from Hartford for a 51-32 victory to improve to 4-0.

The Yellowjackets’ first three wins came by margins of 43, 73 and 30, respectively, so Thursday — against a team playing a division up — was the first time Windsor faced a true challenge. And the Jacks responded well, with their three leading scorers all in double figures.

Senior forward Reese Perry led the way with 16 points, senior guard Peyton Richardson added 13 and fellow senior guard Elliot Rupp chipped in with 10. The Yellowjackets, using a suffocating defense that consistently cut off Hartford’s passing lanes, outscored the Hurricanes 32-11 between the second and third quarters.

Senior forward Beth Dobrich had 12 points to lead Hartford, which dropped to 2-2.

“Our first few wins, we were blowing teams out and we were up from the jump,” said acting Windsor head coach Randy Rupp — filling in for Kabray Rockwood, who was out due to COVID-19 protocols. “To be punched in the mouth a little bit, to get our composure back, that says a lot about what our team is ready to do.”

Windsor heads to White River Valley on Tuesday, while Hartford hosts Blue Mountain on the same date.

Rivendell 34, Oxbow 31

ORFORD — The Raptors improved to 2-3 on the year with the home win.

Ryleigh Butler was top scorer for Rivendell with 9 points followed by Savannah Gray, 8 and Alex McFate 7.

Rivendell had a five-point lead at halftime and led by seven after three quarters. Oxbow made it close by winning the fourth quarter, 8-4. 

"We had a great battle today with Oxbow,," said Rivendell Coach Tim Goodwin. "It was a game that came right down to the end and could have gone either way."

The Olympians were led by Maggi Ellsworth, 11 points, Alexa Kosakowski, 10 and Emma Parkin, 8.

Oxbow (1-4) travels to Montpelier on Tuesday while Rivendell is home to Mount St. Joseph Academy on Monday.

White River Valley 43, Springfield 24

SPRINGFIELD — The Wildcats jumped on the unbeaten Cosmos early with a 12 point lead, 21-9, after the first quarter and were never threatened after that, outscoring Springfield 22-15 the rest of the way.

Sophomore Tanner Drury and junior Jillian Barry had 17 and 11 points respectively.

"Nice bounce back win after a tough loss the other night," coach Tim Perreault said. "We had good energy on defense. Ella Perreault owned the boards pulling down 15 rebounds despite being out sized." 

White River Valley (3-2) is home to Windsor on Dec. 28.
