EAST HAMPTON - The 28th-seeded Innovation girls basketball team knew it was going to be in for a tough game against No. 5 East Hampton.

Unfortunately for the Ravens, they were right and the game was over before it began.

Lindsay Orbann scored a game-high 17 points for Bellringers and Innovation was shut out in the first quarter on its way to a 60-15 loss in the first round of the Class S state tournament Tuesday night.

It didn’t get any easier for the Ravens over the next three quarters.

Innovation made just six baskets in the game with Bailee Nardi leading the team with a game-high five points.

The Ravens finish their season 9-13.

“It was a really good season for these young ladies,” Innovation head coach Michael Jessie said. “They played hard down to the last minute.”  

Parish Hill 53, Goodwin Tech 35: Paola Barbosa once again did all she could to keep the Gladiators in the game. It just wasn't enough against top-seeded Parish Hill.

Barbosa scored a team-high 22 points as Goodwin Tech's run in the Class S tournament ended Tuesday night.

Tanija Russell and Aiyana Montes were the team's second-leading scorers with four points each.

The Pirates, meanwhile, got a game-high 24 points form Maria Tomas and 17 from Kaysie Dupis.

The Gladiators held a four-point lead heading into halftime, but fell apart in the third quarter, effectively putting the game out of reach.

Goodwin Tech finishes out its season 8-13, while Parish Hill (19-2) will play No. 17 Wamogo (11-9) on Friday.
