This past Saturday, your Warriors won a hard fought sectional playoff game at home vs Lake Shore 54-49. The boys trailed up until the 4th quarter, but then turned it up when they had to to make sure they would advance to the semi finals to face Lewiston Porter tomorrow evening, 6:45pm at Buffalo State
College. The Warriors showed some early nerves, but did enough to keep things close until they were able to tie and eventually take the lead mid-way through the 4th quarter. Seniors Armondez Cleague and Jason Saloman made sure the Warriors would play another day as they both tallied 16 points. Cleague also added 9 rebounds and 4 steals while Saloman had 5 rebounds and 2 steals. Sophomore Nevada Eldridge continued to improve and played big all game in the pain and finished with 12 points and 6 rebounds. Jaylen
Williams, Keonte Brown, Derek Frank, Jabari McDonald and Jesse Hawkins all played valuable minutes to help
secure the win. Come out Wednesday night, show your Warrior Pride and support your boys as they try to advance to the finals.
It was an emotional night for the 7 seniors on the Warrior basketball team as they took on Williamsville South in the final regular season home game. Unfortunately, the final score doesn't do justice to the hard work they've put in over the year. Jaylen Williams led the Warriors with 18 points and
Nevada Eldridge added 8 rebounds. Jabari had a career 7 points and 4 rebounds, Omar had 2 huge boards and Rayshawn Minter added a steal. A 73-56 loss was not what they hoped for, but seniors Jabari McDonald, Omar Al-Naji, Rayshawn Minter, KeShone Beal, Derek Frank, Armondez Cleague and Jason Saloman still have the eyes set on a league title with the last regular season game Friday Night @ Iroquois, tip-off set for 6:30. The Warriors sit a game back but play the first place team with a chance to get a share of the title. Come out and support your boys as they look to get revenge vs the Chiefs.
The Varsity Warriors posted a solid win over league foe Lake Shore 72-61. The Warriors led from the tip and had the lead up to 17 late in the 3rd and hung on for the win. Armondez Cleague was all over the court for the Warriors scoring 20 points, grabbing 6 rebounds, dishing out 8 assists, and
smacking 4 blocks. Nevada Eldridge had his best game as a Warrior tallying 19 points and grabbing 8 rebounds
to go with his 2 steals and aggressive play on both ends. Jason Saloman quietly dropped another 15 points while
Keonte Brown had 6 points. Next up, the Warriors host Williamsville South for Senior Night tonight, tip-off set for 6:30pm with senior night festivities starting at approximately 6:15pm. Come out and show your gratitude to our 7 seniors
