EAST ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Zarriah Eldridge and Emma Romach each scored 16 points leading (8) East Rochester to a comfortable 68-46 win over (9) Avon in a Class C1 first-round game at ER Wednesday night.
The Bombers ran off 14 straight points in the final three minutes of the first quarter to take a 20-7 lead and never looked back. The cushion bulged to 40-17 at the half.
Avon opened the second half on an 8-2 spurt and seemed poised to climb back in the contest. However, back-to-back threes by Romach and Zarriah’s younger sister Aniyah pushed the deficit back over 20 points and the Braves were never again a threat.
Aniyah Eldridge finished with 14 points while Lily Funk added 11 for East Rochester. The Bombers lived up to the nickname, making eight three-pointers before halftime.
East Rochester improved to 14-7 and will face top-seeded Canisteo-Greenwood in Saturday’s quarterfinals.
Avon finished the season at 13-8.
