Ludden girls hoops beats Caz again

Inside, Lauren Roy, with 15 points, and Roesch, with 11 points, both had strong showings. Solvay had Tessa Pucello earn 17 points, with Abbey Jones adding nine points and Tiffany Guinta eight points.

Bishop Ludden's boys team had just one outing last week, going to Homer and dominating the Trojans in a 63-29 romp to improve to 7-5 on the season.

Steadily, the Gaelic Knights worked its way to a 52-19 lead through three periods. E.J. Beauford, with 12 points, led a balanced attack where Tyler Young had 11 points and Jared Littlejohn got 10 points. Dennis Kelly (seven points) and Omar Osbourne (six points) were close behind.

Solvay's boys basketball team ran into Bishop Grimes Wednesday and lost to the Cobras 57-26, as it got just four points in the entire first half, quickly deciding matters.

The Bearcats would recover later, but no one had more than Jeremiah Cregan's six points. Mike Stone led the Cobras with 18 points.

Rough as that was, Solvay was as good in Friday's home game against Phoenix, steadily pulling away from the Firebirds in a 68-49 romp.

The Bearcats (4-6) outscored Phoenix in every single period, adjusting to the pace. After a slow first quarter, Solvay used a 23-point outburst in the second quarter to establish control and lead 35-26 at the break.

And the margin kept growing, thanks to four players scoring in double figures. John Savo had 17 points, with T.J. Fazio (15 points) and Cregan (14 points) close behind as they combined for seven 3-pointers. Dan Aiello added 10 points and R.J. Lostumbo got eight points.
