BUFFALO —

The Lady Red Raiders came out of their locker room with steam pouring out of their ears and promptly produced a game-changing 18-2 run that the let air out of the Lady Lions balloon. A pair of 3-pointers from Peyton Butts and a dozen points from Chrisanna Green were the catalysts in a 29-point third quarter for the Lady Red Raiders, who now led, 46-36 after three.
Jamestown coasted in the fourth, but not before Green hit two more threes to finish with a game-high 27 points. Butts added 21 and Anne Campion had 13 for the winners.
The Lady Lions countered with a sensational grand finale effort from Franco (7 rebounds), who went out swinging, earning every one of her team-high 23-points.
“Sara’s a special player. Real steady. One of the kindest human beings you’ll ever meet,” Catalano said. “Her presence will be missed.”
Wagner finished with 13 points for Lockport. Bechtold, Dry and Wiley had three apiece and freshman point guard Carissa DiTullio added 2.
“We played hard tonight,” Franco said. “I’m glad I got to end it with these great girls. We left it all on the court. That’s all we could do.”
For Lady Lions senior stalwarts Kennedy Smith and Roserita DiMillo, it was their final game in a blue and gold basketball uniform
“It was a great experience for me being a Lockport basketball player,” Smith said. “I couldn’t be happier with the experience that I had.”
Added DiMillo, “We had a lot of fun. We’re like sisters. We all love each other.”
The future remains expremely bright in Lockport with several experienced underclassmen returning in 2014-15.
“We’ve got an experienced point guard now and an experienced two guard (Dry) and we’ve got Hailey and Alyssa coming back and (Katherine) Krchniak and Brooklyn (Camarra) will be ready to step it up,” Catalano said.
