Clymer 52, Brocton 35
BROCTON - The Clymer Lady Pirates (4-3, 3-0) used a huge second half to pull away from the Brocton Lady Bulldogs (1-4, 1-3) to record a 52-35 victory in CCAA West II girls basketball action Saturday.
Carly McAfoose led Clymer with a game-high 16 points while pulling down seven rebounds. Breanna Summers had 12 points and seven rebounds while MJ Trisket added six points, seven rebounds, six steals and four assists in the win.
Jess Putcher recorded 16 points and six rebounds in the loss.
"We played well and had the lead after the first quarter," Brocton coach Ken Purcell said. "We played good defense. The second quarter was back and forth, but the third quarter was the difference maker. We got into foul trouble and Clymer was able to build a 15-point lead. We cut the lead to six with five minutes left, but after (Jess) Merle fouled out we seemed to lose our wind. The score doesn't really indicate how close it was."
Brocton hosts Panama on Tuesday while Clymer makes the trip to Sherman.
Silver Creek 61,
Catt-Little Valley 21
CATTARAUGUS - The Silver Creek Black Knights (6-1, 2-1) got back to their winning ways Saturday with a 61-21 win over Cattaraugus-Little Valley in non-league girls basketball contest.
"We got an early lead and started to work on our offensive a little bit," Silver Creek coach Tammy Rice said. "This game gave us a chance to go over our offensive sets and get more comfortable."
The Black Knights jumped out to a 22-0 lead after the first quarter on the back of standout center Jordan Brooks, who scored 14 points in the quarter.
"She does a good job running the floor and letting girls find her," Rice said of Brooks. "She has great positioning and played an amazing first quarter. Jade Lewis had an all-around solid game as well. She did a good job penetrating the lane and dishing to the open shooter."
Silver Creek took a 35-6 lead into halftime and never looked back en route to a big win for the team after losing its first league game of the season earlier in the week.
Brooks led the way with 28 points, 19 rebounds, five blocks and five steals. Lewis ran the offense to perfection, dishing out 15 assists and recording six steals to go along with nine points. Cora Utegg added seven rebounds in the win.
Silver Creek will be back in action on Tuesday when the team travels to take on Falconer in a non-league matchup.
