Leading from wire-to-wire, Elba downed visiting Lyndonville 60-35 this evening in a Genesee Region League girls basketball game.

Emily Reynolds scored a game high 18 points and Titiana Draper 15 to set the pace for Elba as Alex Reigle added 9 and Carli Bogue 8.

Aubrey Lewis scored 15, Makenzie Muck 14 and Jasmine Plummer 6 to account for all of Lyndonville’s scoring.

Up 14-9 after one period, Elba stretched its advantage to 17, 28-11, midway through the second quarter after a 14-2 run highlighted by threes by Draper and Bouge and back-to-back layups off turnovers by Reynolds. The Lady Lancers maintained a 15 point, 30-15, advantage at the half.

Lyndonville did come battling back in the third period as an opening 6-0 run on a jumper by Muck, a rebound basket by Plummer and a layup off a turnover by Lewis cut the deficit to 9, 30-21.

Four straight free throws, two each by Muck and Lewis, then pulled Lyndonville to within 8, 35-27, late in the period but the Lady Tigers could get no closer.

However, Elba extended the lead back to 13, 40-27, at the three-quarter mark after a three by Leah Bezon and a bucket by Draper.

The Lady Lancers then put a firm lock on the victory by opening the final period with an 11-3 run including a thee-point play and two rebound buckets by Reynolds, to stretch the advantage to 21, 51-30.

Elba finishes the regular season at 12-8 while Lyndonville goes to 4-15 heading into Wednesday’s non league finale at Rochester Academy Charter.
