HAC 60
BLOOMFIELD 48
BLOOMFIELD — HAC’s Ryan Hllton scored a career-high 30 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked four shots to keep the Wolves league title hopes alive and propel HAC to an upset win at Bloomfield 60-48 Wednesday night in Finger Lakes West action. The game was a battle for second place as each entered the night chasing undefeated Marcus Whitman. HAC (8-4 and 5-3) still has to play Marcus Whitman twice before the season wraps up. Bloomfield falls to 6-7 overall and 6-4 in FLW. With the win, HAC salvaged a split with the Bombers, who beat HAC 62-60 early in the season.

> Xavier Israel slashed through for another 20-point night for HAC. Israel and Hilton countered Bloomfield’s Alexander Roach and returning FLW Player of the Year Patrick Geitner, who had 23 and 17 points respectively. The Bombers jumped out to an early 9-0 lead three minutes in before the Wolves snarled their way back into the game. Hilton’s ‘and-one’ midway through the first pulled HAC to within 9-5 and then HAC closed out the quarter trailing just 13-11.
Bloomfield stuggled to get to the rim in the second quarter thanks to a tenacious HAC defense which cut off any drive and Hilton, Andrew Alexis and Rob Dorsey plugging the middle. Offensively, the Wolves steadily pulled away and ran into halftime with a 28-22 lead. Hilton and Israel scored 26 of HACs points, while Roach scored 16 of his teams points by the intermission. Bloomfield opened the second half with an aggressive defense of their own and Geitner scored two quick buckets to cut the lead to just two, but HAC regrouped and a three point shot by Kyle Lacey extended the lead to 33-26 midway through the third, and by the end of the quarter the lead was 41-31.
Hilton, Israel did their parts offensively, while the defense shut down Bloomfield in the fourth, gradually extending the lead to 58-41 with about 4 minutes left. Gietner and Roach pushed the Bombers back with a combined 13 points late in the game, but the lead was too large to overcome. Hilton, Israel, Roach and Geitner combined to score 90 of the 108 total points in the game.

NAPLES 39
MARCUS WHITMAN 56
Seth Benedict and Jon Donovan combined for 15 points as Marcus Whitman opened a 21-7 lead after the first quarter. Donovan finished with a game-high 14 points. Benedict had 13. Liam Pendergast added 10, and Tim Cornish had nine on the strength of three 3-pointers. Rile McLoud chipped in six. Peyton Miller and Hunter Commisso had two apiece for Marcus Whitman. Nick Clearman paced Naples with 11. Conrad Rathbun had nine in a losing effort. Ben Chaffer scored eight. Evan Bay had six, Adam Quarterman three and Ben Green two points.

RED JACKET 69
HONEOYE 57
In order to top the Honeoye boys basketball team, Red Jacket had to go away from the basket, and let if fly from behind the three-point arch. This method can be risky, but luckily for the Indians (6-8), it worked, as they used nine three-pointers to topple the Bulldogs 69-57 on Wednesday at Honeoye.
