SHERMAN (Feb. 6)- Sparked by Chris Robson, Sherman moved above .500 on the season.

Robson scored 29 points to lead the Wildcats (10-9) to a 70-56 victory over Forestville (3-13).

Robson and Jared Gleason took care of the scoring in the first half with 15 points and 10 points, respectively, as Sherman emerged with a 30-25 edge.

In the second half, Robson added 14 more points and Kolby Parks chipped in with 12 points of his own, as the Wildcats went on to outscore the Hornets, 40-31, over the course of the third and fourth quarters.

Robson had eight assists and six rebounds, Gleason had five assists and Parks contributed three assists for the Wildcats. Gleason checked out with 16 points and Parks scored 13 points in the win.

Jackson Egan netted 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead Forestville while Kalvin Stanbro had 12 points and nine rebounds. Lewis Markham added 11 points and four assists in a losing cause.

Bulldogs edge Clymer

BROCTON (Feb. 5) - In three different games this season, Brocton's opponent had the ball for the final shot. And all three times, the Bulldogs prevailed.

The latest heart-stopper came Friday night as the Bulldogs (14-4, 6-4) defeated Clymer (7-11, 5-6), 45-43, in CCAA West 2 boys high school basketball.

"I think we are getting a lot of learning experience," Brocton coach Matt Seiberg said of playing close games. "They had a steal which led to a fast break. They missed the layup. They could have tied it. It was just back and forth the whole time. They are a balanced team. Both games have come down to the last shot. It will be interesting if we play them again in the playoffs."

Both teams held a seven-point lead in the first two quarters, only to watch the opposition respond and tie the score. The score was tied 19-all at halftime and tied once again after three quarters, 33-33.

"It was probably the most competitive game we had all year, as far as not making bad mistakes," Seiberg said. "They just played good basketball. It was fun to watch. It wasn't hostile. The fans enjoyed the game and said so afterwards. That's what you want for high school basketball."

Garrett McFadden led the Bulldogs with 12 points, including seven in the first quarter while Aaron Riforgiato had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. Steven Krystofiak had nine points and seven boards while Alec Chelton had nine points, five rebounds and three assists.

Adam Honey led the Pirates with 13 points and five rebounds. Dustin Neckers and Dylan Neckers each scored nine points in a losing effort.

Wildcats top Westfield

SHERMAN (Feb. 5) - Chris Robson and Jared Gleason keyed a second-half comeback for Sherman (6-5, 9-9) in the Wildcats' 42-35 victory over Westfield.

Robson scored seven points and Gleason added five during a 15-8 third quarter as the Wildcats overcame a three-point deficit at halftime to take the lead for good.

Robson scored 19 points with five 3-pointers while Gleason added 12 points. Gleason brought down 11 rebounds to go along with six assists and four steals. Teammate Ty Prarom had nine rebounds.

For Westfield (3-7, 5-11), Jonathan Wilson scored 13 points with 11 coming in the opening period while Trevor North had six rebounds and Max Bates five. North also handed out four assists.

Brocton wins on late Chelton free throws

BROCTON (Feb. 2) - The Brocton Bulldogs' defense shined once more to compensate for a poor shooting performance in a 34-33 win over Frewsburg on Tuesday in CCAA West 2 boys high school basketball.

"As usual, the boys bought into knowing if we play good defense, they can be in any game," Brocton coach Matt Seiberg said. "(Tuesday) is another example of that. Especially playing a team we gave up 54 points to last time. They killed us on the boards last time."

Brocton held an 11-8 lead after eight minutes and a 21-14 halftime lead.

However, the Bears chipped away and trailed just 29-25 heading into the final quarter.

Frewsburg even held a 33-32 lead with two minutes remaining.

Brocton's Alec Chelton hit a pair of free throws in the final 34 seconds to give the home team the win.

Aiding in the Bulldogs' win was the shooting of Garrett McFadden, who drained four 3-pointers on his way to a game-high 14 points.

"He has been cold shooting, so it was nice to see him break out of that slump," Seiberg noted. "It shows we can hit shots. He was huge. We have to battle through cold funks."

Ryan Johnson and Steve Krystofiak each had timely baskets as they combined for 18 points in the win.

Cordell O'Brien led the Bears with 15 points and seven rebounds.

Wolverines lose

to Panama, 58-27

(Feb. 2) - The Westfield Wolverines' shooting woes continued Tuesday night in a 58-37 loss at the hands of the Panama Panthers in CCAA West 2 boys high school basketball.

The Wolverines made just 11 shots from the field as they are averaging just 38 points the last three games.

Panama held a 28-15 halftime lead and went on to outscore the home team, 30-22, in the second half.

"They played good man-to-man defense," Westfield coach Bob North said. "The first half we got good looks and didn't make them. In the second half they played great."

Jack Payne led Panama with 18 points and three steals while Josh Eddy had nine points and as many rebounds for the winners. Chris Blose had nine points, five assists and three steals for the Panthers.

"They have four kids on any given night who can put up 20," North said. "You pick your poison. We talked about Payne all night, but he still had 18. You have to double Eddy inside. I thought Max Bates did good job. Our interior defense was good. They're hard to defend."

Westfield's Eric Fermier led the team in scoring with 10 points and Trevor North had four assists.

Late Neckers shot lifts

Clymer over Sherman

CLYMER (Feb. 2) - Dustin Neckers' 7-footer with .6 seconds remaining lifted Clymer to a 52-50 win over Sherman, ending a five-game losing streak to the Wildcats.

Sherman led 46-34 entering the fourth quarter, but failed to hit a field goal and made just four free throws over the final eight minutes. The Pirates took advantage with an 18-point quarter and took a 50-48 lead late on Dylan Neckers' 3-pointer. The Wildcats' Jared Gleason tied the game with a pair of free throws with 23 seconds remaining. With 15 seconds left, Clymer worked the ball to Josh Summers on the perimeter. As the Wildcats' defense closed out on Summers, the senior captain found Dustin Neckers in close for the winner.

"To pull this one out tonight was kind of nice, especially coming back from the deficit heading into the fourth quarter," said Clymer coach Dan White. "We did a nice job getting out on the shooters."

Dylan Neckers finished with eight of his 21 points in the fourth quarter while Summers and Honey hit key 3-pointers in the final eight minutes.

Chris Robson led the Wildcats with 18 points, but just three came after halftime. Gleason finished with 16 points and eight rebounds while Kolby Parks scored all 15 of his points in the middle two quarters. Robson had seven rebounds, Parks had three steals and Kyle Carpenter had eight assists in the loss.

Chautauqua Lake upends Maple Grove

MAYVILLE (Feb. 2) - Aaron Swan led Chautauqua Lake to a 69-52 Division 1 West win over Maple Grove.

The junior guard tallied 17 points, including 9-of-9 shooting from the foul line, to go along with 11 rebounds and six assists for the Thunderbirds.

Devin Pope scored nine points during Chautauqua Lake's 20-15 first quarter. Swan followed with seven points as the Thunderbirds hit three 3-pointers in the second quarter for a 36-24 halftime lead.
