DIVISION 4

PATTERSON SHINES

BROCTON – With time running out in the fourth quarter, Brocton head coach Jeff Franze knew whose hands he wanted the ball in – senior Jordan Patterson.

Down 40-39, with less than a minute left in regulation, Patterson took a pass, worked in and around the Clymer defense, waiting for the right moment to put up a shot.

As both the game and shot clock wound down, Patterson let go a 3-point attempt from 22-feet out, finding nothing but the bottom of the net and helping the Bulldogs (13-1, 9-1) escape with a 45-40 win over the Pirates (9-5, 5-3).

“To make that NBA three with the shot clock running down was huge, just absolutely huge,” Franze said.

“It took a little wind out of our sails,” Clymer coach Dan White said, referring to Patterson’s 3-pointer. “But we ran the out-of-bounds play at the end like we wanted to, it was just a little too rushed, instead of letting that play set all the way through. And that was the key thing.”

Patterson finished with a game-high 21 points, adding five steals while fellow senior Dan Ferguson finished with eight points and seven rebounds.

“They were very determined (Tuesday),” Franze noted of his seniors. “Dan didn’t score a lot of points, but he played good defense and we tried to run our offense through him. He made the right plays and it was a great team effort.”

Aaron Riforgiato, a freshman, finished with eight points and a game-high 10 rebounds for the Bulldogs.

For Clymer, Mitch Einink ended his night with a team-high 12 points, adding six rebounds while Dan Lictus chipped in 11 points and six rebounds of his own.

DIVISION 3

WESTFIELD BREEZES

WESTFIELD – The Westfield Wolverines (8-1, 10-5) had four players score in double digits en route to an impressive 75-12 victory over Franklinville (2-7, 3-12).

Tanner Dahl led the way with 18 points while Jon Coe added 14. Jordan Imm and Dan DeMarco each had 12 in the win.

The home team jumped out to a 26-3 lead after the first quarter and held a 38-8 halftime advantage.

The Wolverines dominated the boards with 42 rebounds. Jacob Gray pulled down 10 while Imm had eight. Dahl also had eight assists and four steals while Coe added five assists and six steals.
