Penn Yan 57 Wayne 47

The Penn Yan Mustang boy's basketball squad hasn't enjoyed the new year for the most part. The Orange and Blue cagers ended the 2014 portion on a roll. But the start to 2015 has been rugged with the Penn Yan five losing three of the four games they have played. The Mustangs traveled to the shores of Lake Ontario to play Finger Lakes East foe Wayne Wednesday night, hoping to get back to their winning ways. And win they did. Penn Yan defeated Wayne 57-47.

Tanner Irwin, the talented Mustang junior, led the Penn Yan scoring ledger with 23 big points. Jake Covert authored a fine offensive game also notching 14 points.

The win improved their FL East record to 5-2. They are tied for second place with Mynderse and Pal-Mac. Penn Yan's overall record improves to 8-4. Up next for the Orange and Blue hardwood crew will be Waterloo at home Friday night.

Dundee 65 Bloomfield 46

The Dundee Scots boy's basketball team has been hotter than a 4th of July firecracker as the 2014-5 basketball season heads toward the final weeks. The Scotsmen hosted Bloomfield Wednesday evening in a Finger Lakes West match, and continued to roll. The Scots easily defeated the Bombers 65-46 to improve their Finger Lakes League mark to 8-1. They are 10-2 overall.

The Dundee scoring parade was led by Andrew Clark with 17 points. Jarrett Butler added 12 points while Tyler Kelly chipped in 11.

The Scots hold down the second place spot in the Finger Lakes West, one game behind first place and undefeated Naples. The Finger Lakes West powerhouse basketball teams will meet Feb. 3 in Dundee. The Scots play at South Seneca Friday night.
