Allegany-Limestone Sinks Cardinals On Flanders’ Late 3

RANDOLPH — Sam Flanders hit a 3-pointer with 16 seconds remaining as Allegany-Limestone beat Randolph, 53-51, in a Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Athletic Association Division 1 East showdown.

On the ensuing possession, the Cardinals were fouled in the lane, but missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with an opportunity to tie the game.

Throughout the night, Randolph hosted Cardinals Vs. Cancer to help two families in the community and raised over $11,000 after setting a goal of $10,000.

“We usually make $4,000. Everybody went above and beyond,” Randolph coach Kevin Hind said. “It was standing-room only. It was a great atmosphere.”

The Gators (8-1, 3-0) jumped on top early and led 15-11 after the first quarter before Ty Hind scored 10 of his team-high 15 points in the second quarter as the Cardinals (8-3, 2-1) fought back to tie it at 24 heading into halftime.

Branson Morrison, Ty Rosengren and Dawson Bosley all hit 3-pointers during the third quarter as Randolph built a seven-point lead, only to see it shrink to four entering the final eight minutes.

“We had a chance to push it to 11 during the third quarter, but missed two easy layups,” Kevin Hind said.

Conner Golley chipped in 10 points for Allegany-Limestone while Morrison had 9 for Randolph.

FREDONIA ROLLS

PAST DRAGONS

Keith Piper scored 8 of his 15 points in the first quarter as Fredonia jumped out to a 21-5 lead over Maple Grove en route to a 75-53 Division 1 West victory.

“He would get an offensive rebound and put it right back up,” Maple Grove coach Rob Collver said of Piper. “They were a lot more physical and a lot tougher than us.”

Brayden Myers led the Hillbillies (8-4, 5-1) with 16 points while Tyler Putney added 13 and Kaleb Rybij had 11.

“We missed a ton of layups and putbacks in the first quarter,” Collver said. “Our defense wasn’t very good and their defense was really good.”

Nick Whitfield and Rybij each had eight rebounds while Alec Schrader handed out four assists in the win.

Peter Auer led the Red Dragons (5-6, 1-4) with 18 points to go along with eight rebounds and six steals. Tyler McPherson grabbed 13 rebounds and Darius Jones had five steals.
