LE ROY PENNYSAVER & NEWS - MARCH 5, 2023 Le Roy Youth Basketball Subitted by Ric Vangalio BOYS 5TH GRADE GLOW BASKETBALL VS ATTICA (02/25/23): With the Boys 5th Grade GLOW Boys Basketball regular season finally over, the Knights headed into the year end tournament as the 3rd seed in the west bracket. The Knights finished the regular season with a 5-2 record and felt good about their chances in the tournament coming in. This weekend’s opening game saw them face off against the 6 seed Attica Blue Devils. Le Roy who prefers to run a high paced offense, was lulled to sleep a little in the opening quarter of the game as Attica was intent on keeping the ball outside of the perimeter hoping for a breakdown of the Knights defense. Unfortunately for them Le Roy’s defense, led by Kiptyn Cone and Drew Spink made sure that wasn’t going to happen. After falling down to a quick 2-0 deficit, Le Roy’s regular season scoring leader Ryker Vangalio once again started the offensive spark with 2 quick baskets to give Le Roy the lead late in the 1st. Blake Biracree and Cole Cray also scored a basket in the 1st to give the Knight’s a 8-2 lead at the end of the period. In the 2nd period, Vangalio managed to add 6 more while Biracree added 2 more of his own. Harrison Porter and Carter McClurg provided the defense as the Knights finished the 1st half with a 16-4 lead. The 2nd half saw a little more offense for the Knights, but unfortunately for the Blue Devils, the same stingy defense for Le Roy as well. Scoring in the 2nd half was McClurg, who added 4 points as well as Harrison Porter scoring on an offensive rebound for the Knights. In the end Le Roy skated to a 39-9 victory and advanced to the 2nd round of the playoffs to face Wheatland-Chili. Leading the Knights in scoring was Ryker Vangalio with 18 points (5 steals, 3 rebounds, 3 assists). Also contributing on offense was Cole Cray with 8 points (4 rebounds, 5 steals, 2 assists), Blake Biracree with 6 points (3 steals and 2 assists), Carter McClurg with 4 points (3 rebounds, 5 steals) and Harrison Porter with 2 points. **Weekly Mowin'** * Trimming/Pruning Tree - Schrub - Hedge * Landscape Mulch / Curbing & Design Edging / Planting & Removal Bed Maintenance * Fertiizer & Weed Control * Spring & Fall Clean Ups Leaf & Debris Removal * Sod & Sod Removal * Minor Excvation Servicing the WNY region Nick Holly Owner/Operator (585)409-5520 GREENER MOWIN' & Services
