Fair Haven girls outlast Otter Valley basketball
BRANDON — Visiting Fair Haven pulled away down the stretch on Tuesday for a 32-21 victory over the Otter Valley Union High School girls’ basketball team.
The Otters, who have faced a challenging schedule in recent weeks, lost for the sixth time in seven outings and dropped to 7-12. They are set to wrap up their regular season at Windsor on Friday and are battling Woodstock for the Nos. 14 and 15 seeds in Division II.
The Slaters improved to 14-5 and appear to have a solid hold on D-II’s No. 4 seed.
On Tuesday, the Slaters were clinging to a 26-21 fourth-quarter lead over the Otters, but put the clamps on OV the rest of the way and sank six free throws to nail down the win, their second of the winter over OV. Lexi Quenneville scored 17 to pace the Slaters, including three first-quarter three-pointers.
Amy Jones and Gabby Poalino scored six points apiece to lead OV.
