Dundee 48 Williamson 43
The Scots came back from an early 10 point deficit to take the lead and win 48-43 in their first game, played Nov. 26. Miller says, “Dundee showed a lot of grit and closed it to 2 before the half.”
Blake Machuga led the Scots’s scoring with 16 points. Steven Webster shot 10, and Logan Salvatore and Peyton Boudinot each added 8 points.
Rochester Academy 68 Dundee 58
When Rochester Academy came to town Nov. 30, the Scots found themselves digging out of a deeper hole, going down by 18 at one point. They cut the lead to 7 early in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t keop up the momentum.
Logan Salvatore had 16 points, Cody Salamendra had 12, Steven Webster, 11 and Blake Machuga, 9.
After seeing how the Scots fought back in both games, Miller is encouraged by the potential of the team. “If we can get started out better, we should do pretty well,” he says.
The Dundee Scots were scheduled to host Avoca Tuesday to open the regular season. Wednesday they travel to Hammondsport.
