OBSERVER Staff Report
BUFFALO — The Lake Shore Lady Eagles’ season came to an end in heartbreaking fashion on Tuesday night, falling to Amherst, 70-63 in overtime, in the high school girls basketball Class A2 Semifinals at Kenmore West Senior High School.
Lake Shore (16-6, 3-seed) rallied from a 12-point deficit to take the lead with under a minute to go, before Amherst (16-6, 2-seed) tied the game on a three by Leah Shutts with well under a minute remaining in regulation.
Shawni Cornfield had a layup roll in-and-out at the buzzer that would have won the game for Lake Shore. The Lady Eagles were outscored 12-5 in overtime.
Cornfield led the Lady Eagles in scoring this season, while eclipsing the 1,000 point mark in her career on Tuesday.
Only a sophomore, Shawni and twin sister Lani Cornfield will both likely return to Lake Shore with two years of their high school careers remaining.
