WG hoops takes second in Booster Club Tourney

Girls Wildcats roll past RFA, improves to 5-1

Shane Temara again led the way, with 19 points. Sam Brown stepped up for a career-high 15 points, all from five 3-pointers, while Nick Cunningham had 13 points and Schmidt got 11 points.

In order to win, Proctor had its own well-balanced attack, where Reed and Cliff Tracey each had 20 points, with Evans adding 19 points and Daquan Testamark 14 points. Corcoran defeated Ithaca 72-66 in the consolation game to finish third.

Back on Friday, West Genesee’s girls basketball team, remaining in good form, went to Rome Free Academy and defeated the Black Knights 52-40 to improve to 5-1 on the season.

It didn’t start well, as the Wildcats trailed RFA 13-10 after one period. But WG’s pressure took a toll, and it led to turnovers and baskets on the other end.

As a result, WG outscored the Black Knights 33-12 over the course of the second and third quarters to gain a lead it would not surrender.

Melissa Fumano led the charge, pouring in 18 points, seven of them free throws. Hannah Bakowski, with 13 points, and Grace Osterdale, with 10 points, also hit double figures, while Tiana Pugh led RFA with 14 points, eight rebounds and four blocks.
