Warriors fall to unbeaten West Genny in OT

Hamm improved from the Xavier struggles enough to lead the Warriors with 14 points, with Misener close behind as he got 12 points and Rogers added eight points.

While all this was going on, Liverpool's girls team met West Genesee and beat the Wildcats 60-40.

These Warriors and Wildcats were quite familiar with each other, too, having played two days earlier in the consolation game of the Juggler Classic at SUNY-Utica Tech, where Liverpool survived 72-70 in overtime behind Ally Zywicki's 34-point effort.

Nothing like that was required in the rematch, though. The Warriors played stingy defense in the first quarter and quickly built a 14-5 lead. By halftime, the margin had grown to 31-16, and Liverpool was not seriously threatened again.

Zywicki had 14 points this time, but Nicole Ciricillo hit a trio of 3-pointers and led the Warriors with 15 points as Lyteshia Price matched Zywicki with 14 points. Nina Tassone added eight points as Marie Temara, with 13 points, was the only Wildcat to score in double figures.

Now Liverpool awaits another rematch, hosting Utica Proctor Friday. The Warriors let a big fourth-quarter lead slip away in a 67-64 loss to the Raiders on Jan. 15 where Brianna Kiesel put up 40 points. Liverpool's boys make the daunting trip to Proctor on that same night.
