Class A1 Semifinals @ Schroeder
(1)Mendon 86, (4)Eastridge 61
There was a moment when it appeared Pittsford Mendon might have some trouble.
Eastridge trailed by only two late in the first half, but Jacob Shadders hit from half court at the buzzer and Mendon went to the locker ahead 40-35.
They came out a buzzsaw.
The Vikings opened the second half on a 20-2 run that needed less than four minutes and cruised to a 86-61 over Eastridge in the first Class A1 semifinal at Schroeder.
Eastridge was limited to just two field goals in the third quarter and Mendon outscored them 31-11. Michael Harrington had 13 points in the third quarter alone.
Dan Cook led all scorers with 30 points. Harrington finished with 25 while Connor Krapf added 12 and Shadders had 11.
Tony Arnold paced the Lancers with 21 points. The junior also topped 1,000 points for his career with a third quarter free throw.
Mendon remained perfect with the win and are now 22-0.
Eastridge ended the season at 12-9.
(2)Athena 53, (3)Irondequoit 45
Austin Brown broke a 44-all tie for Athena on a putback with just under three minutes to play and the Trojans made every play down the stretch against Irondequoit in the second Class A1 semifinal at Schroeder Wednesday night.
DeAndre Newsome nailed a corner three with exactly a minute to play that extended the Athena lead to four. The Trojans made four free throws late to close it out.
The game was close throughout. The only time either team led by more than six points was after the game’s final two points. The score was tied at the half and Athena led by one after three quarters.
