Hornell on Feb. 16 avenged a nine-point loss to the Eagles earlier in the season. Hornell and Way-Co traded nine-point games as the regular season wrapped in Hornell with a 56-47 victory for the homestanding Red Raiders. The second place position within LCAA Division I to enter sectionals was on the line.


Way-Co had a slim 10-9 lead after the first period and their largest lead of the night moments later when Evan Englert hit back-to-back buckets making it 14-9. Hornell’s Dominic Scavo answered with a pair of 2-plus-1 plays, giving the Red Raiders the lead. The teams traded buckets and the lead for more than four minutes. Trailing by one, Hornell’s John Dagon let a three-fourths-court shot fly that found the mark at the buzzer giving the Red Raiders a 24-22 advantage at the half.


The pendulum continued to swing in the second half. Hornell was up by four early in the quarter, but Englert’s 3-pointer, followed by a Tyler Thielges deuce gave Way-Co the edge. The quarter ended much like the first, as the lead changed hands on every score. In the four, Hornell went on a quick 7-0 and maintained the margin. As Way-Co sent Hornell to the line, the Red Raiders went 7-8 for a 56-57 win.
