While the Warriors did recover and pull within single digits in the game’s middle stages, Proctor prevented any sustained run, and got away by outscoring Liverpool 23-13 in the final period.
Taylor still had 16 points, while Edwards had 12 points and Mike Russo earned 10 points. But the Raiders showed more depth, as Chris Simmons (18 points, nine rebounds) and Naronn Harvey (12 points, nine rebounds, five steals) controlled the paint and J’von Evans (17 points) and Kerion Barton (nine points) helped, too.
The win at Oswego made Liverpool feel a lot better. Now, at 9-4, it hosts Corcoran (who beat Proctor the night after the Warriors lost to them) and Central Square next week, a prelude to the tough homestretch that includes games against both Henninger and Fayetteville-Manlius.
