Building up an 16 point half-time advantage, Lyndonville rolled to a 64-34 win over host Wheatland-Chili in a Genesee Region League make-up game this afternoon.

Nate Dillenbeck scored 19 and Nathan Hydock 14 to lead the way for the Tigers as Russ Stephens added 9, Noah Poler 7, Casey Winiecki 4, Anthony Moule, Jon Slingerland and Basil Cousins 3 and Devin Rounds 2.

Brendan Moore scored 11 and Brian Napier 9 to pace the Wildcats.

Lyndonville’s Basil Cousins looks to drive by Wheatland-Chili’s Amaar Kelly.

Getting excellent results from a stingy zone defense, Lyndonville held leads of 12-4 after one period, 25-9 at the half and 41-15 at the three-quarter mark.

Winiecki had a rebound basket and a layup off a turnover and Dillenbeck a three to spark the Tigers in the opening period.

Stephens then had two jumpers and a three and Hydock a three-point play in the second quarter.

Two threes by Dillenbeck and a three and a fast break layup by Poler highlighted the third period scoring.

Dillenbeck also hit two threes in the final stanza as Moule, Slingerland and Cousins each made one.

Lyndonville which next hosts Notre Dame at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the league finale, is now 8-5 in G-R action and 12-7 overall.

W-C, which finishes at home against Elba on Wednesday, slips to 5-14.

Pembroke 54, Holley 48

Pembroke scored the game’s last seven points to earn a narrow 54-48 win over visiting Holley in another G-R contest.

A three by Cody Tanis put Holley up 48-47 with less than a minute to go but Noah Godzala answered back with a three to regain the lead for Pembroke for good at 50-48.

Godzala finished with 23 points.

Carson Major scored 24 and Kohl Morgan had 12 points and 13 rebounds for Holley which led 30-26 at the half.

Pembroke is now 8-11 and Holley 2-17.
