Having dropped its opener to Baldwinsville in the Tip-Off Classic in the Dome, the Warriors stayed even with WG in the first period, only to struggle late in the half as it was held to seven points in the second quarter.
From there, Liverpool was in catch-up mode, and didn’t suffer on the offensive side. In fact, Josh LaRue set a career mark with 16 points, while Mike Russo got 11 points and Caleb Taylor added nine points. Alzono Grainger had seven points as Abe Odum and Tyler Bliss picked up six points apiece.
However, none of them came close to the effort of WG’s Phil Allen, who torched the Warriors for 27 points, constantly earning fouls and converting 12 free throws.
Both of Liverpool’s teams would look for more success on Tuesday against F-M and on Friday when they play Oswego.
