BOYS HOOPS: Warren, Ike win consolation games

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. -Warren’s boys basketball team rebounded from a tournament loss on Thursday and a slow start Friday for a 57-40 consolation game win over Bradford in the St. Bonaventure tournament.

“It was a slow first quarter for both teams,” said Warren coach Jeff Berdine, whose Dragons are 5-2 after dismantling Bradford last week at home.

This time it took a 31-17 second half to do the job. Collin Fantaskey scored 13 of his game-high 22 points in the second half.

“I really thought we did a good job on the glass and got good transition baskets as a result,” said Berdine.

Jake McBride finished with eight rebounds for Warren, Jacoby Passmore, Tanner Stanz and Max Gross five each, and Fantaskey and Ryan Gustafson four each.

“Tanner (Stanz) had seven of the 10 points in the first quarter to give us a little momentum,” said Berdine. Stanz finished with 11 of his 14 points in the first half, in which Warren led by three before breaking away in the second half.

WARREN (57): Stanz 6 0-1 14, Suppa 0 1-2 1, Fantaskey 9 3-4 22, Gross 2 1-2 5, Passmore 3 0-0 6, Nowacki 1 0-1 2, Gustafson 0 1-2 1, McBride 1 1-3 3, Vasilisin 1 0-0 3, Totals 23 7-15 57

Eisenhower 53,

Southside 38

CORRY – Eisenhower is also 5-2 after a 53-38 consolation-game victory over Southside (Beaver) Friday at the Corry Holiday Tournament.

The Knights outscored Southside 32-15 in the second half.

“We got in a phase where we turned the ball over,” said Ike coach Dave Allenson. “We must have had 20 turnovers in the first half. In the second half, we didn’t run nearly as much but passed the ball and were still scoring layups; turning the ball over less.”

Jake Johnson scored 15 points and Tre Frank 10 in the win.

SOUTHSIDE (38): Romonchak 2 0-0 4, Lamoa 2 0-0 4, Berger 2 0-0 4, Larder 1 0-0 3, Conti 1 0-0 3, Thompson 4 0-2 9, Konopao 1 0-0 2, Wilson 4 2-4 9. Totals

Union 69, Sheffield 61

Sheffield rallied from an early deficit to cut Union’s lead to eight points in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t come any closer as the visiting Knights bounced the hosts into the Sheffield Sports Boosters Christmas Tournament consolation game with a 69-61 win Friday night.

Union closed out the first quarter on a 10-0 run, and once led by as many as 21 points. The Wolverines stormed back, outscoring the Knights 26-13 in the fourth before time ran out on the attempted comeback.

The Knights converted 14-of-33 attempts from the free-throw line, compared to 5-of-9 for the Wolverines.

“It all comes down to discipline,” said Sheffield coach Tony Richards. “We played decent at times, and then we’d start throwing the ball away. We need to be more disciplined running through our plays and show a little patience against any of the presses (Youngsville) throws at us.”

Jimmy Vile scored a game-high 18 points and Travis Petersen added 12 for the Wolverines. Vile also had 14 rebounds for a double-double, and Noah Heeter grabbed 11 boards.

The Union trio of Cole Morris, Trevor Corle, and Dylan Shirey scored 17, 14, and 14 points, respectively.

The Wolverines will take on county-rival Youngsville in the consolation game at 6 p.m. Saturday, while Union meets Cameron County in the championship final at 7:30. The Red Raiders defeated Youngsville in the first game, 69-31.

UNION (69): Corle 4 5-10 14, Shirey 4 3-6 14, Morris 5 3-4 17, Harris 3 1-4 8, Cicciarelli 3 0-6 6, Murphy 2 1-2 5, Carmichael 2 1-1 5; Totals 23 14-33 69.

SHEFFIELD (61): Petersen 5 1-1 12, Higby 2 2-4 7, Connolly 1 0-0 2, Johnson 4 0-2 8, Heeter 2 0-0 4, Vile 7 2-2 18, Confer 4 0-0 10; Totals 25 5-9 61.

Cameron County 69, Youngsville 31

Cameron County was too much for Youngsville to handle in the opening game of the Sheffield Sports Boosters Christmas Tournament, as the Eagles were handed a 69-31 loss at the hands of the Red Raiders Friday at Sheffield High School.

“I’m very disappointed,” said Youngsville coach Jim Kesterholt. “We were very undisciplined. We’re just not good enough to not play as a team, so it’s back to the drawing board. We need to have a better effort tomorrow night.”

Collin Lehnen poured in 17 points to lead the Eagles, while James Frazier chipped in eight.

Cameron County’s Nate Sestina led all scorers with 20 points.

CAMERON COUNTY (69): Clingan 5 1-2 11, Gusto 3 2-4 8, Grimone 1 0-0 2, Newhouse 1 0-0 3, Spehalski 1 0-0 3, Sestina 8 2-4 20, Smith 6 0-2 13, Olivett 2 1-1 5, Nollis 1 2-2 4; Totals 28 7-15 69.
