FRIDAY SCHOLASTICS: Cheshire girls get their first W; Wallingford squads triumph at home; Wilcox sunk at the buzzer

MILFORD — Well, something had to give.

The Cheshire and Jonathan Law girls basketball teams were still looking for their first victory when they collided on Friday night in Milford, and it was Cheshire, fueled by a balanced attack, that got the goose egg out of the win column with a 48-40 SCC crossover decision.

The backcourt of senior Amelia Perlini, junior Ella Kulas and sophomore Allie Grove combined for 38 points as the Rams extended a 22-20 halftime lead to 32-27, then made it stand up in the fourth quarter.

Kulas scored 15 points, Grove delivered 12 and Perlini, the point guard, chalked up 11.

Cheshire is now 1-8, Law 0-7.

Sheehan 50, Guilford 36: The Titans didn’t have their best game of the season, but they improved to 6-1 all the same with the SCC interdivisional victory in Wallingford. Sheehan, the winner of five straight, got a game-high 15 points from freshman Megan Wresien and 11 from her twin sister Jenna Wresien. Point guard Liv Cassesse added 9 points for the Titans and fellow junior Bella Perno popped a pair of 3-pointers. Guilford (1-5) got 12 points from Keira Reynolds and 10 from Kat Baseggi0.

Lyman Hall 49, Career 27: The Trojans snapped out of a two-game slide with the SCC interdivisional win on their home floor. LH built a 22-6 lead in the first quarter in improving to 4-4.
