Taking charge in the third quarter, No. 11 seeded Roy-Hart went on to defeat visiting No. 14 Buffalo Arts 66-54 this evening in the opening round of the Section VI Class B2 boys basketball playoffs.

Leading 25-20 at the half, Roy-Hart used a 20-12 third period scoring edge to key the win.

Rhett Goodwin hit two threes as Canyon Wood and Jon Gillings each had one and Tom Ragonese chipped in with 4 points to lead that surge which vaulted the Rams out to a 45-32 advantage at the three-quarter mark.

Wood finished with 11 as Goodwin and Ragonese both added 10, Reed Albee 9 and Aiden Petrie 8.

However, Roy-Hart will have little time to savor the win as the Rams must visit No. 6 Cleveland Hill in the next round at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
