B'ville breaks early skid, rallies in fourth quarter
One inspired rally, and one spectacular play, may just be the turning point the Baldwinsville boys basketball team so badly needed. The Bees were staring at a third consecutive defeat to open the season when it went to West Genesee last Friday night and erased a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat the Wildcats 59-58.

What a difference three weeks can make – or even less.

It’s fair to say that the Bishop Ludden girls basketball team liked dealing with Skaneateles the first time around. In a second head-to-head encounter in a span of less than three weeks, the Gaelic Knights went on the road to face the Lakers last Friday night and had a much different result, unable to overcome a first-half slump and taking a 48-40 defeat.
