Lockport, Starpoint post impressive swim wins

Basketball Lions roll by visiting Ken East; Newfane girls win thriller.



Under the guidance of coach Mary Dooley, the Lady Mustangs return to action Thursday in a home contest against Akron. Start time is slated for 4:30 p.m.
Lockport 69, Ken East 40
LOCKPORT — Lions senior forward and UB bound diamond star Charlie Sobieraski poured in a game-high 19 points and added 13 rebounds to spark head coach Dave Gilson's Lions (5-1 NFL, 6-3 overall) to victory on Wednesday night.
Mo Townsend added 17 points for LHS and senior Ryan Lawrence chipped in with 10 points and 8 rebounds.
A 21-5 second quarter was the difference in the Lions' Den.
Adam Geib led the Bulldogs (1-5 NFL) with 10 points.
Barker 72, Roy-Hart 47
BARKER — A 29-11, third-quarter spurt was the difference in Barker on Tuesday night as head coach Dave Carson's team improved to 4-0 in the N-O and are 8-0 overall.
Mitch Luckman led the Raiders with a game-high 26 points. Fellow junior Chris Sweeney added 18 points and senior all-everything Jake Haight chipped in with 11.
Alex Stoddard topped the Rams (3-2 N-O) with 12 points. Fellow senior Cody Breedlove added 10 points.
“I think difference in the game was the third quarter — which was a big quarter for Sweeney and Luckman,” Carson said.
“Luckman had nine points with two threes and Sweeney had 11 points with three, three-pointers in that quarter. That was a good third quarter for the Raiders.”
Albion 65, Newfane 64
