Hornell 61, Way-Co 52

HORNELL — For the second straight game, the Hornell defense stepped up in a big way in the second half as the Red Raiders picked up a tough LCAA win over Wayland-Cohocton by a 61-52 final in Hornell last Wednesday. 

The first quarter of play was a one-on-one matchup between Way-Co’s Jamie Carman and Hornell’s Vinny Liberto. Carman scored the first ten points of the game for the Golden Eagles, who took a slim 10-8 lead halfway through the quarter. But Liberto quickly stabilized the Red Raiders and scored 12 of his 16 total points in the first as he kept the Red Raiders in the game.

Thanks to Liberto, Hornell built up a very slim lead in the final minute, but the Golden Eagles closed the quarter on 5-1 run that tied things up at 21-21 after a very high-scoring opening stanza.

But a hot finish to the first did not carry over to the second, as the shooting regressed to the mean rapidly for each team. Wayland-Cohocton found ways to generate a few easier looks, thanks largely to a strong effort on the offensive glass. When the Red Raiders called a timeout with just under two minutes left in the half, the Golden Eagles held a small 27-24 lead.

Hornell quickly regrouped and ripped off a 7-2 run over the final two minutes to take a 31-29 lead, but Way-Co’s DeAndre Green made one final bucket in the last ten seconds as the score remained tied at 31-31 going into the intermission.

Hornell came out of the break and took a quick lead thanks to a 5-0 run in the opening minutes of the second half. But as quickly as lead was built up, Way-Co erased it, and the teams traded 3-point buckets until Hornell held a 43-40 advantage with just two minutes left in the third.

Jackson White then buried a 3-pointer and Conor Smith made a great move to the hoop to give Hornell it’s largest lead of the night at 48-41, but the Golden Eagles hit one final triple in the last ten seconds to make it a 48-44 game going into the fourth.

After the quick break between quarters, White buried another trifecta in order to put the lead back at seven and gave Hornell the 51-44 lead.

Way-Co was led by Green, who scored 19 points. Carman also added 10 points in the loss for Wayland-Cohocton (0-3).
