Olean stands TALL

Curry, Gagnon & Placek take final bows for Wilson



Sophomore Rachel Painter (7 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals) hit a 3-pointer and moments later Moore (13 points, 12 rebounds, 3 blocks) scored on an offensive rebound as Olean reeled off seven straight points to take a lead they would never relinquish. Lasher finished the quarter with 8 points, while co-captain Placek and junior Dana Smith also got on the board, but the Lakwomen trailed 16-12 after the first eight minutes.
The second quarter was all Olean, as they out-scored Wilson 15-3 to take a 31-15 halftime lead. Pearl and Bantelman (7 points) hit tres, while senior co-captain Sara Ziegler (14 points, 10 rebounds), Pearl, Painter, Ziegler and Moore added buckets. Junior guard Allie Bubar’s rebound basket and Lasher’s free-throw was all Wilson could muster offensively.
“Kaylee’s shooting helped get them out of their zone and we were doing a good job defensively on Curry,” Scholla said.
Ziegler did everything but get the mis-placed ball down from the top of the basket, netting seven third-quarter points as Olean out-scored Wilson 14-10 to put the game out of reach after three quarters, 45-25. Smith (8 points, 5 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 steals) shined for the Lakewomen and Curry, who averages 13 points per game, netted her only two points of the night on a pair of free-throws.
Olean’s big girls dominated the first half of the fourth quarter as well Ziegler and Moore combined for nine points and numerous rebounds, then both teams emptied their benches. Bubar, Placek and junior Emily Kam hit baskets for the Lakewomen, but the Lady Huskies coasted to the big victory.
