For Central Heights, it was another close one that got away.

“We have just been ‘snakebit’ this year when it comes to close games and this was yet another example,” Central Heights coach Scott Lane said. “A great game by both teams. I want to thank the seniors McKenna, Kenzie, Whitney, Madison for four great years.”

Sydney Meyer paced the Vikings with 13 points. Wellsville was led by Ashley Sparks with 15 points, Moriah Kayhill and Emily Newhouse tossed in 10 each.

Wellsville (44) — Geist 1, Newhouse 10, Kayhill 10, Graminski 6, Patton 2, Sparks 15.

Lyndon 32, WF 27

LYNDON — The West Franklin offense struggled in a 32-27 loss Tuesday to Lyndon in Lyndon.

“Tough game and struggled to knock down a shot,” West Franklin coach Kyle Conley said. “We got a lot of good looks but failed to capitalize on those opportunities.”

“Good solid effort on both ends of the court,” Lane said. “We came out with lots of energy in the first half and played great defense. Sydney Meyer really established herself in the post and forced their defense to collapse which opened up our shooters.”
