Ethan Fry had a second-half-high 19 of 21 points as Fredonia rallied for a 62-53 Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Athletic Association Division 1 victory over Allegany-Limestone on Tuesday at the Fredonia High School.

“At this point in the year, playing in the league we play in, any win is important,” Fredonia head coach Nick Bertrando said. “Allegany-Limestone has been at the top of our league since joining. I’m proud of the guys and how they competed tonight.

Hillbillies seniors Alex Field, Nick Creeley, Nick Whitfield and Gabe Schrader were honored ahead of their final home game of the regular season.

For 16 minutes, it looked like it wouldn’t be a successful senior night.

After halftime, Fredonia (10-7, 3-5) beat the Gators (10-7, 3-4) 19-9 in the third quarter before securing the victory by nine points.

“They won three at half time but we tightened up defensively and executed better offensively,” Bertrando said, adding of Fry, “He started to be a bit more aggressive on the attacking side and stretched the ground a bit.”

Whitfield finished with 18 points and Creeley added 8 while Keegan Whitfield, Schrader and Jay Hawk each had 5.

“Creeley had a pair of big 3s early on,” Bertrando said. “Every little bit counts, especially against a strong and well-drilled Allegany-Limestone squad.”

Tyler Curran led Allegany-Limestone with 21 points and Anthony DeCapua had 11.

The Hillbillies travel to the South West for another Division 1 West game on Friday.

“There are no nights off in CCAA Division 1 West. They got us home. Aaron is doing a good job there,” Bertrando said. “They play hard, they play physically. Every time you play there it’s a tough atmosphere. They do a good job defending the pitch at home.

Trojans fail

WEST ELLICOTT — Southwestern nearly handed Olean its first Division 1 West loss on Tuesday night.

In the end, the furious return of the Trojans came to a halt.

With a chance to go up four in the final seconds, the Huskies (14-1, 10-0) missed a free throw, but Southwestern’s three-quarter field pass was intercepted, allowing Olean to miss time on a 57-54 victory. .

The Huskies entered the fourth quarter with a 46-27 lead before the Trojans (7-11, 4-4) started to pull away. Eventually, Olean led 55-54 with 15 seconds left and got the ball in. Southwestern attempted to put the Huskies on the free throw line, but was called for an intentional foul. Olean made a free throw to move up 56-54 then made another free throw with less than five seconds remaining to move up 57-54.

The Huskies led 15-5 after a first quarter in which the Trojans turned the ball over eight times.

“There was a lid on the basket in the first half” Southwest head coach Aaron Emley said.

Southwestern cleaned up their offense after that, finishing with just 13 turnovers.

Matt Pannes led the way for the Trojans with 25 points and 10 rebounds while Jason Ni had 14 points.

“Jason in our last three games has been our most consistent player,” Emley said. “He progressed as a senior.”
