Keeping the momentum, the Tigers used a 24-15 third period scoring edge to extend the lead to 14, 64-50, at  the three-quarter mark.

Poler hit three threes to lead that surge as Dillenbeck added 8 points including a three-point play and a three at the buzzer and  Hydock a three.

Newfane though came battling back.

Fouling on every possession to quickly get the ball back, the Panthers put together a 19-4 scoring burst to slice the deficit to just six, 79-73, with 19 seconds to go. Threes by Capen, Snow and Oudette highlighted that rally which also included 7 points by Srock.

Lyndonville though weathered the storm as four clutch free throws by Dillenbeck in the last 18 seconds finally put a lock on the win.
