OLEAN — ”The kids played well, even though we lost,” Frewsburg coach Jeff Collver said after the Bears fell to Olean, 53-48, in a non-league girls basketball game Thursday night.

Sarah Pfeiffer poured in 37 points, including 17 in the fourth quarter to keep the Lady Huskies in front.

Frewsburg, which lost to Olean, 60-55 in double-overtime, earlier in the season, got within two points but could never take the lead in finishing the regular-season 17-3, including a 10-0 record in winning Division 2 West.

Olivia Lynn and Gabby Iuculano each had 19 points to lead the Bears. Lynn also grabbed 15 rebounds, Iuculano had nine, and Hannah Boardman and Kaitlyn Blanchard had seven.

Olean, meanwhile, connected on 16 of 18 free throw attempts and ended the regular season at 17-3 overall and 11-1 in Division 1 West.
