Maintaining a two game lead, undefeated Barker posted a 61-49 victory over host CSAT this evening in a Niagara-Orleans League boys basketball make-up game.

Christopher Sweeney scored 18, Jacob Haight 12, Bryce Moeller 12 and Mitch Luckman 11 to lead the balanced attack for Barker which improves to 7-0 in the league and 11-0 overall.

Barker jumped out to a 21-10 first period lead as Haight netted 8 in the early going.

The Raiders maintained leads of 34-20 at the half and 46-36 at the three-quarter mark.

Sweeney then hit three of his four threes down the stretch to help put a lock on the Raiders victory.

The loss drops defending champion CSAT into fourth place at 4-3 behind 5-2 Medina and 4-2 Roy-Hart.

Barker next hosts Akron Friday.
