Bath Haverling 63/Dansville 58

BATH | While he’s not absolutely certain, Bath Haverling girls basketball coach Randy Abrams suspects history was made Thursday during his Rams’ game against Dansville.

Behind a mammoth double-double from Jordan Yastremski, Bath rallied from a 22-point first-half deficit and posted a 63-58 victory over Dansville.

Yastremski netted 15 of her game-high 27 points during the third quarter, pulled down 16 rebounds and blocked four shots to lead the Rams to what is believed to be the biggest comeback win in the program’s history.

“It was a great game – to be able to come back from that kind of deficit is outstanding,” Abrams said. “I’m still kind of awestruck to be honest with you. To be down 22 against a quality team and then come back and win – if it’s not a record it’s got to be close.”

Dansville’s hot shooting and a lethargic first half from Bath conspired to put the Rams in a deep hole early. Bath trailed 22-5 after the first quarter and 32-16 at halftime.

However, the Rams rallied behind the play of Yastremski, Toni Townsend and Courtney Coots to outscore the Mustangs 47-26 in the second half.

“In the second half, we got a little more aggressive, got our fast break going and Jordan was a monster in the third quarter,” Abrams said.

Coots finished with 16 points and four steals, while Townsend added 10 points and eight rebounds.

Bath (8-1, 3-0) will play at Addison on Tuesday.
