Losses puts spin on N-O

Wilson, Newfane both lose, but can still share title on Thursday.

Losses by both Niagara-Orleans League boys basketball frontrunners on Tuesday sets the stage for a fantastic finish on Thursday.

Visiting CSAT nipped Wilson, 45-42; while Akron (8-5) edged past visiting Newfane, 48-45.

That sets the stage for Thursday’s regular-season finales as Wilson (10-3 N-O) plays at Royalton-Hartland, while the Panthers (10-3 N-O) host surprising CSAT (9-4 N-O).

A number of scenerios can come out of Friday’s slate of games. If both Wilson and Newfane lose, there will be a three-way tie for first. If either Wilson or Newfane win and the other loses, the winner is the N-O champ out-right.

Tyler Martin scored 15 and Dustin DiLaura 10 for Wilson.

Roy-Hart 72, Barker 64

BARKER — Brad Bobbitt score 23 and Chris Luce 22 to spark Roy-Hart past Barker.

Josh Haight tallied 15 and Jake Haight 13 to lead Barker.

Leading by only two, Roy-Hart got four cluctch ree throws each by Bobbitt and Luce down the stretch to lock up the win. Bobbitt went 13 of 16 from the line on the night and Luce 11 of 14.

The Rams led 32-26 at the half.

MIDDLEPORT — Jesse DeWaters scored 15, Kristi Harnish 11 and Olivia Kelkenberg 10 to spark the attack for Roy-Hart on Tuesday to clinch at least a tie for the 2011-12 N-O girls hoops championship.
