North Collins 46, Pine Valley 29
NORTH COLLINS — The North Collins Lady Eagles earned their fourth win of the season on Wednesday with a 46-29 win over the Pine Valley Lady Panthers in a CCAA East 2 Division girls basketball game at North Collins High School.
After a 47-36 loss the night prior against Salamanca, the Lady Eagles earned their second league win of the year with a nice bounce back against Pine Valley (2-17, 2-5), who was coming off a 55-39 win over Ellicottville the night prior. North Collins (4-11, 2-5) was led by Makenna Williams with 19 points, while Hailey Jasinski added 14 points and Michaela Rice had 10 points of her own.
The two teams are tied in both league play and power point average with one game remaining. On Friday, North Collins hosts Ellicottville, while Pine Valley goes to Cattaraugus/Little Valley. Should the two teams have the same result on Friday, the higher postseason seed — should neither team opt out of the Sectional playoffs — would go to North Collins because of the overall win percentage tiebreaker.
Portville 58, Gowanda 29
PORTVILLE — The Gowanda Lady Panthers fell to Portville on Wednesday night by a score of 58-29 in CCAA East 1 Division girls basketball action at Portville High School.
