Jamestown Prevails On Drake’s Tip-In

ORCHARD PARK — Freshman Trey Drake scored on a tip-in with 1.2 seconds remaining as Jamestown beat Orchard Park, 56-54, in Erie County Interscholastic Conference Division 1 boys basketball Wednesday night.

The Red Raiders (12-6, 8-2) led 54-52 and were inbounding under the Quakers’ basket with 20 seconds remaining, but Jackson Roskow picked up a steal and scored on a lay-in to tie the game at 54.

Jamestown then missed a 15-footer at the other end of the floor before Drake’s game-winning putback.

“It was a battle all game,” Jamestown head coach Ben Drake said. “I thought we played really hard. I was really proud of our effort tonight.”

Demarri Jones led the Red Raiders with 17 points and 14 rebounds while Elijah Rojas added 14 points and seven assists. Drake scored 8 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter, including a pair of 3-pointers.

“We had a lot of different guys making plays for us throughout the game,” Ben Drake said, “and four different guys scored in the fourth quarter of a back-and-forth game.”

Jaral Farmer and Jaylen Butera each grabbed five rebounds in the victory.

Bradley Fowler led Orchard Park (12-5, 7-3) with 14 points, Roskow had 13 and Tino Mancabelli added 11.

Jamestown took over first place in the league with a pair of games remaining, Friday night against Clarence at McElrath Gymnasium and Monday afternoon when the Quakers visit Jamestown at 1:30 p.m.
