Grace Controls The Game In Limited Playing Time

BREWSTER – Grace Galgano was an All-Section 1 player last year as a sophomore, so everybody knows how good the Brewster High School girls basketball standout is.

Now they know how good she can be without playing a full game.

Galgano sat out the first quarter and a half after picking up two early fouls, but still had a double-double as the Bears beat Somers, 54-47, in their season opener on Tuesday.

Galgano had 17 points, 12 rebounds and six blocked shots. Teammates Alexis Mark – who was also in early foul trouble – and Madison Dakin both had 11 points.

Amy Lasher had a game-high 21 points for Somers.

“It was a typical league game with Somers,” Brewster coach Mike Castaldi said. “It was back and forth, both teams spent the first half getting into the flow of the game. We built a 12-point lead in the third and they cut it to one, but the kids made plays. We pulled out a really ugly first-game win.”

Castaldi credited strong play from Sophia Alzugaray, who had nine points.

“When Grace and Lex were in foul trouble, Sophia came off the bench and buried three three-pointers in the first halfl,” he said. “She kept us in the game.”
