Girls basketball: Danielle Scaperrotta leads Ardsley to win; more results

Ardsley has been doing a lot right this season.

Add one more thing with its recent promotion of eighth-grader Danielle Scaperrotta from JV to varsity.

Playing in just her third varsity game, the point guard had 11 points, including six down the stretch, to help lead Ardsley to a come-from-behind 60-47 win over visiting Edgemont Tuesday.

“This is a kid who, from the day she moved up, has been a player who has fit right in,” Ardsley coach Mike Pollio said, adding, “her performance, as good as it was, is no surprise.”

The surprise was that Ardsley (11-3) found itself trailing 25-23 at the half.

“We didn’t have our legs tonight,” Pollio said, noting that led to uncharacteristic fouls.

Edgemont (8-8) also got a big game from senior Shayna Davner.

Davner’s 19 points left her 27 shy of 1,000 for her varsity career. She’ll shoot for that mark at home vs. Pelham on Friday, which, appropriately, is Edgemont’s Senior Night.

Julia Hoffman (14 points) and Gaby Susz (12) also hit for double figures for Edgemont.

But it was Ardsley that had the more balanced attack.

Isabella DePasquale had four 3-pointers en route to 16 points. Casey Foley added 15 points, six coming from 3-point range, and Nicolina Chenard had 12 points.

“We’re a team where we can have a balanced attack and that’s very important for us, not to rely on one or two players. Big game, big spot, we need that balanced attack,” Pollio said.

Best of the rest: Clarkstown South’s Laura Castaldo hit for 24 points as the Vikings beat host Clarkstown North 59-40. … Casey Friend had 13 points as host Ursuline downed White Plains 66-43.
