Pal-Mac 32 Penn Yan 30

The Penn Yan Mustang girl’s basketball team completely shutdown the visiting Pal-Mac Red Raiders in the second and third quarters in their Finger Lakes East League showdown in Penn Yan of Friday night.  

Penn Yan limited Pal-Mac to just four total points in that 16-minute time frame.  But unfortunately for Penn Yan, two quarters does not constitute a whole game.  

Pal-Mac outscored their host 12-6 in the initial quarter and dominated the final eight minutes with a 16-8 run.  

This would be enough to give the Red Raiders a narrow 32-30 victory.  A 3-pointer by Pal-Mac with just 1:33 remaining proved to be the game winner and sent  Penn Yan down to defeat.

Kate Disbrow notched 11 points to lead the Lady Mustang offense.  Emily Simpson added 10 points and Morgan Simmons 5.  Chelsie Travis and Kaleigh Neuberger grabbed six rebounds each for Penn Yan.  Earlier in the week, Penn Yan’s Rachel Roddenbery was named the Player of the Week in the Finger Lakes East for the week of Jan. 17-23.

The Lady Mustang’s record falls to 7-4 in the F.L. East (tied for 3rd place).  They are 7-6 overall.

Pal-Mac 44 Penn Yan 41

The Penn Yan Mustang boy’s basketball team journeyed to Palmyra to take on the Red Raiders in a Finger Lakes East League  showdown on Friday evening.  Early on, it looked like the upstart Mustangs were primed to pull off an impressive upset, and record their second league win of the year. 

The Orange and Blue cagers dominated the first half and raced to a 24-15 halftime lead.  But the wheels came off the Mustang offense in the 3rd quarter.  Penn Yan was held to just 3 points in that stanza and Pal-Mac pulled even at 27 after three quarters.  The Red Raiders continued their comeback in the final period and slowly eased away to a 44-41 victory.  

James Burdette led all Penn Yan scorers with 15 points.  Dylan Yonts added 10 points and adam Stork 7.

With the loss, Penn Yan’s season’s record slips to 1-9 in the league and 2-10 overall. 

The Mustangs fell to Marcus Whitman 59-34 Jan. 31 in a make-up game.

Naples 56 Dundee 55

The Dundee Scots basketball squad hoped to close the gap in the Finger Lakes West and make a late charge toward a possible league title last week.  They traveled to Naples Friday to face the Big Green and hoped to come away with another league win.  

But their Ontario County hosts had a different plan.  The maroon clad cagers from Dundee jumped off to a quick 13-9 lead after one quarter.  

But the Green machine countered with a 19-10 run in the second quarter to grab a 28-23 halftime lead.  The third quarter belonged to the Scotsmen in this see-saw contest.  They recaptured the lead with a 19-10 run of their own.  Dundee led 42-38 after three quarters.  But the pivotal fourth quarter belonged to Naples.  They outscored Dundee by a 18-13 count which would be just enough to give the hometown team a narrow 56-55 win.

Garrick Conyers continued his torrid shooting for Dundee.  He netted 24 points to pace the Scotsmen attack.  Joe Tortolon registered 16 points.  Kyle Woodard added six points.  Dundee’s FL West record dropped to 6-4 with this crucial loss.  They currently are in fourth place in the league.  Dundee is 8-4 overall.
