Fighting Irish down cold shooting Tigers; Purple Eagles, Rams, Raiders bow
Unable to rebound from an ice cold shooting first quarter, Lyndonville dropped a 53-32 decision to visiting Notre Dame this evening in a Genesee Region League boys basketball game.
Able to click on only 3 of 24 first quarter field goal attempts, Lyndonville fell behind by 14, 21-7, as Notre Dame hit five threes in the early going including three by Ryan Moffat.
Notre Dame, which hit a total of 10 threes on the evening, increased the advantage to 17, 32-15, at the half and to 22, 42-20, at the three-quarter mark as a rash of turnovers combined with cold shooting plagued the Tigers.
Moffat finished with a game high 19 points as Nico Zambito added 8 and Wilson Lugo and Brendin Klotzback 7, Jake Wetherwax 5, Anthony Gugino 3 and Jordan Wetherwax and Jordan Lyons 2 each for the Irish.
Eric Neace led Lyndonville with 13 as Jacob Hoffee added 7, Nathan Poler and Matt Hess 4, Zach Johnson 2 and Dylan Nicholson 2 each.
The loss drops the Tigers to 0-2 in the league and 3-2 overall.
The Tigers played without their scoring leader, Eddie Schildt, who injured a knee in last Friday’s game against Elba.
