Penn Yan 82, Haverling 34

The Mustangs dominated the Rams, moving up to 9-7, while Haverling dropped to 7-9. Scoring was opened up by tying three-pointers around the minute and a half mark of the first period, though PY quickly asserted themselves, coming out firing to finish the first 29-14. Penn Yan outpaced the Rams straight through the second period, with PY's Brigham Hansen giving a top-notch performance. The second half of play saw the crowd erupt after a slam dunk from PY's Tanyon Dunning as the Mustangs continued to run away with the game, never giving Bath the chance to rally.

Also for the Mustangs, Griffin Emerson scored 13 points and Carter Earl scored 10. Leading the Rams was AJ Brotz with 12 points. Penn Yan also won the Junior Varsity game against Haverling 59-39.

Feb. 7

Newark 60, Penn Yan 42

In a game originally scheduled for Feb. 3, the Reds took the win in Penn Yan, dropping the Mustangs to 9-8, while Newark rose to 11-6. The opening minutes of the game looked like it would be a tough fight between the teams, but Newark began showing an advantage about halfway through the first period and from there, PY was simply outshot, outrun and outmaneuvered, with the period ending 20-6. The game slowed pace in the second period, with both teams showing some fatigue, though Penn Yan was unable to make much progress before halftime. The Mustangs fought back a bit after the half, thanks in large part to the efforts of Ashtian Dunning and the third period ended 42-30, but PY was unable to put anymore points on the board in the fourth and by the last couple minutes of the game, the wind was noticeably gone from the sails of Penn Yan's players and home crowd as the clock ticked down to a Newark win. Isaiah Camp led the Reds with 19 points, while Brayden Steve brought in 10. Dunning was the top gun for PY with 14 points.

Feb. 8

Geneva 61, Penn Yan 49

A second loss in as many days saw Penn Yan fall to an even 9-9 for the winter. Similarly to their game the night before against Newark, PY had a tough opening against the Panthers, with the first period ending 17-2 and Geneva more than doubling the Mustangs' score by the half. Also similar to their previous game, Penn Yan was able to make up some room in the third period, but was unable to overcome their opponents, finding themselves behind at the final buzzer. Devin Thomas scored 25 points for Geneva, with teammate Immanual Townsend bringing in 14. For PY, Brigham Hansen had 14 points, Tanyon Dunning had 13 points and Griffin Emerson had 10 points.

Dundee/Bradford 62, Romulus 49

Dundee/Bradford took the win over Romulus, moving up to 13-4 and hitting their third three-game run of the season. Romulus was 11-6 with the loss.

Nick Slavick assisted the Scots with six points and 13 rebounds. Romulus was led by Henry Morse with 20 points, while Mike Kaufman and Ben Jessop each scored nine. After the game, Dundee/Bradford was at the top of the Finger Lakes West.

Wayne 54, Marcus Whitman 40
