ALLEGANY — The journey begins with a trip down Route 417 in Cattaraugus County. As you continue further up the road, in between neighbors Olean and Allegany, you’ll begin to notice a different change of scenery out the window. In full view, completely visible to the naked eye, a bright beacon sits aglow in the quadrangle.

The designation: St. Bonaventure.

As you make that turn onto College Street, and follow it all the way to the back of the famed Division-I campus — the only Division I campus of its kind in the Southern Tier, you will find a place that has witnessed and amassed many memorable moments of ultimate grandeur take center stage, over the course of decades.

To name a few: More recently, a monstrous double-overtime win in front of a packed Wolfpack crowd for the then-Andrew Nicholson led Bonnies over St. Joes back in 2012. One that aided the team’s trek to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the turn of the millennium, 12 years prior. Even further back, the final curtain call for the basketball court’s namesake — Bob Lanier, back in 1970, when he played his final home game against one of the school’s archrivals in Canisius.

What happened further beyond that final day in the Reilly Center, can speak for itself. Loud and clear.

With the Bonnies having taken care of business over the weekend against Siena, and their eyes now set on No. 15 Florida Atlantic this upcoming weekend back on their home floor, Bob Lanier Court remained empty on Monday. There’s a pretty special reason behind that.

For one night only, high school basketball took over.

Inside that famed basketball chapel, on that historic hardwood, it was Andover/Whitesville and Arkport-Canaseraga’s time to make some noise, as both boys and girls squads came together for the opportunity of a lifetime. The girls took to the floor first to kick off the twinbill, in a first quarter battle that could have gone either way.

But thanks to some early three-point help, the Lady Wolves were able to navigate their way through the aperture to come away with the lead heading into the second quarter. With that now solely in their possession, the keys to the defense’s ignition were turned to start.

Arkport-Canaseraga began to take over.

The second quarter would see the team in white and teal catch an exuberant amount of fire on both ends of the floor, as they cashed in on every chance that was presented to them whilst holding Andover/Whitesville to just two points across their half-ending jaunt, setting the tone for the remainder of the contest to aid in capturing what was a 48-23 win.

“In high school basketball, shots aren’t always going to fall,” said Lady Wolves coach Rob Patrick. “You’re going to have to lock it down on defense when you can, and then really hope for them to fall while staying away from causing turnovers. We forced them to do some of the things that we were hoping to do on defense. For us, that was a big part of our game plan.”

Patrick added on the team’s opportunity to play on a Division-I floor entering and exiting the night, saying that “The girls were really excited to come here. I will say, they were a little nervous playing on a big court like this. It was nice of Andover/Whitesville to put this together, and give our girls this chance to experience something like this. Anytime you have a chance in an atmosphere like this, to give the kids experience, we’ll take it.”

Arkport-Canaseraga’s ascension to victory began after a close quarters battle with Andover/Whitesville (1-4) through the first eight minutes of the night. A timeframe which saw the Lady Wolves strike while the iron was hot on the first of two Morgan Gilbert triples right from the opening tip. The team in black would shake it off further down the line in the stanza, using some help at the line to coincide with a pair of Olivia Waters buckets down low to trim their deficit to three.

After the lead was kept intact by Gilbert’s second triple from long range, the Lady Wolves resumed where they left off with another strong start in the second quarter, going forward to score six of the first eight points to branch their advantage to as much as six approaching halfway to play. A big reason behind that — a near-perfect outing at the charity stripe, going 7-for-8 in all. An outing that saw Payton O’Dell record a perfect 6-for-6 tenure in the midst of it.

“(Payton) O’Dell, she is really difficult to stop in the paint. We’re undersized, and our girls did what they could against her,” Andover/Whitesville co-coach Aaron Rawady said. “They did a pretty good job, but she’s a talented player and she’s going to find a way to get her buckets. A couple of other kids did a great job knocking down threes when we had to collapse in the post. Rob had his team ready to go, and he always does a great job with them. They did what they set out to do.”

Arkport-Canaseraga (3-2) kept the momentum in their favor right at the beginning of the second half onwards, paced by the hand of Grace Groves outside, as she knocked down two of her three triples from within the frame to propel the team’s biggest quarter of the night to maintain their advantage on Andover/Whitesville heading to the last eight minutes.

Despite the deficit, there were plenty of bright spots for Andover/Whitesville off stellar plays down low, including a hard-fought basket from Julia Cavagna, and a short time later, an offensive board cashed in by Olivia Waters, who led the team in scoring with nine team-high points.

“We’re a very young team, very inexperienced. We lost a lot from last year but they’re starting to figure things out,” Rawady said. “Every day, they’re getting better and their effort is outstanding. We’re just trying to get down some of the fundamentals and the IQ things we need to be more competitive. We never question their heart and effort. They show up to play.”

Following Waters in the scorebook was Graci Lewis-Ellison, who posted six points, including a perfect 4-for-4 at the line. Grace Fry and Makaila Brewster each had three points. For Arkport-Canaseraga, O’Dell and Groves both paved the way with 12 game-high points each. Gilbert, along with Gracen Mahany each had eight points.

For Rawady, despite the result, it was a chance to give his team a once-in-a-lifetime night they will remember as time goes on. The majority of which had never set one foot into the Reilly Center, until now.

“This is a really great opportunity for the kids,” he said. “Most of them have never even been here to catch a game for starters. To be able to get on the court, that’s something pretty special they will take with them and remember it going forward. It was a great opportunity that Jimmy (Joyce) and Jake (Bannerman) were able to get set up for the boys and for the girls. We’re definitely appreciative of them, and we’re appreciative of Arkport/Canaseraga coming with us and playing. It’s a great night for everyone involved.”

With the Lady Wolves delivering victory number one, it was now the guys turn to take control of the night cap on Bob Lanier Court. And it was a game that developed into a mirroring image of the last.

What morphed into a fast and furious start on both sides for much of the opening frame, rapidly airmailed into an opening for one time to climb through. That being Arkport-Canaseraga, who finished the first quarter strong on a scoreless run and carried the momentum into the next eight minute stanza, growing their lead out to double digits and keeping it there permanently behind their defense to help put a wrap on a complete sweep of the action with a 79-45 victory over Andover/Whitesville.

“Our full-court press is our foundation,” said Wolves coach Max Houy. “Our defense is what wins us games, and the transition points that come from it, are even more important. When you’re in a big gym and the three-point line is a little bit further back than what we’re used to, you have to bring up the pressure. I was a little nervous about the length, but we covered it pretty well.”

Each team would jog off on a scoreless run to open the game, with the Wolves delivering the first punch on four straight points before Andover/Whitesville (3-3) fired right back with six straight themselves from three different scorers, as Colton Calladine, Brody Vance and James Miller-Young all provided the early firepower to deliver the 6-4 lead approaching halfway in the frame.

After some big shots at the charity stripe to ease their way back in front, a back-and-forth clash for the driver’s seat ensued, ultimately seeing the Wolves (4-0) reclaim it on what was the final lead change of the frame. With under two to play, the Arkport-Canaseraga defense forced multiple turnovers onto their side, which resulted in a quarter-ending 6-0 run to branch their advantage out to eight.

The advantage would reach as high as 13 at one point in the second quarter, behind a pair of back-to-back triples from the hand of Caden Carey, as the momentum remained firmly in Arkport-Canaseraga’s favor down to the end. As for the half’s conclusion, the Wolves ended it strongly by forcing three straight turnovers against Andover/Whitesville — cashing in on all three to lay claim on a 40-25 lead at the break.

A moment that Houy said, fired his team up. Especially with a quality opponent up next on their schedule, just under 24 hours away.

“That was massive,” he said. “We went into the locker room after that, and the guys were all fired up about it. We brought all that back out with us for the second half. We’re going to need every bit of that with Dansville coming up on the schedule. We’re 4-0 and playing a bigger school back home at Canaseraga, and we’re going to do our best to keep this momentum going.”

Andover/Whitesville coach Jimmy Joyce added on the second quarter, noting that “We weren’t able to stop their runs. Once we got them to a five or 10-point run, it snowballed into a 10, 15-point run. We were trying to limit them and tried to get some of our own in the same swing, but it snowballed. We got into early foul trouble too, which didn’t help matters much. We had some kids come up from JV on a short bench that also got some great experience too, so that’s a positive we can take away.”

By the time the second half arrived, the Wolves were clicking on all angles on the floor, as they tucked away the night’s final victory for good behind a stellar 23-8 run of Andover/Whitesville in the third quarter, ignited by a 14-point frame from Tim Vilkhu, who finished as the leading scorer for the Wolves with his game-high 23 points.

Following behind Vilkhu was Carey, who concluded with 16 points. Alex Vilkhu was the third Wolf to score at least 10 points, as he posted 11 in all. On the other side, Brody Vance bucketed 22 team-high points to pace the Andover/Whitesville offense. Following up was Colton Calladine, who had 11 points. Jake Mattison had six points off a pair of three-pointers.

One thing is for certain when both coaches looked back on the night and what it presented, they both share a common denominator: They were beyond grateful for the opportunity.

“We’re just so grateful to Andover/Whitesville,” said Houy. “This is all theirs, they set up all of this. I got an email out of the blue, and they are super sweet people over there. They told us that they had a date open to play at Bonaventure and asked us to come play. It’s a very cool experience for us coaches, and more importantly, the kids to have experienced.”

“I think that’s what we preached to our guys, win or lose from this. We wanted to experience this, and I think we did that,” Joyce reflected. “We didn’t play as well as we wanted to, certainly, but there were positive moments that we can take from this. Arkport-Canaseraga is a great team, and they play the game we want to play. But they’re better than us at it right now, and that’s where our aim is. Overall, I take more positives out of this and we have more work to do with it.”

Joyce added on the team effort from both sides to make the special night happen for everyone in attendance, saying that “I’m really glad everything worked out when we first talked about setting this game up. Without the Boosters clubs from both schools, none of this would be possible. We had volunteers far and wide from both communities step up to help us in every way they could. It was a total team effort across the board, and they all helped make this a fun, memorable and enjoyable experience for the kids that I hope will take this with them in the time to come.”

BOYS BASKETBALL

Genesee Valley/Belfast 79, Campbell-Savona 30

BELMONT — An exceptional genesis to a Monday night was one to behold from the Genesee Valley/Belfast boys squad, as they ripped and roared from within the confines of the Jungle in Belmont and never looked back on a furious first quarter start they established from the ground up, using it to roll past visiting Campbell-Savona with a 79-30 victory.

Right out of the gate, Genesee Valley/Belfast (4-1) hit all strides against the Panthers, putting their strongest frame of offense to work and finishing it with a lead they would never lose over the course of the battle. In all, the hosts recorded a humongous 26-6 run that saw three different scorers eclipse double figures at the end of the night to propel the offense to big heights.

Among them, Kadin Logue, who put together his best performance this season with 22 game-high points, including three of the team’s six triples from downtown. Following behind was Ian McKenzie, who chipped in with 13 points of his own. Jacob Borden provided a heavy inside presence down low to help round off the efforts with his 12-point game.

Genesee Valley/Belfast will now begin the search for their fifth win in their first six games next week, as they prepare for a visit from Cuba-Rushford back down the road in Belfast at 7:30 p.m. next Monday night.

Houghton Academy 48, Friendship/Scio 32

HOUGHTON — After tough losses to the hands of Fillmore and Jasper-Troupsburg last week, the Panthers of Houghton Academy ensured that the brand new week of action would begin on the most positive of notes Monday night, as they claimed victory over Friendship/Scio on their home floor by a 48-35 count.

GIRLS BASKETBALL

Fillmore 43, Holland 36

HOLLAND — It was not easy by any means, but after a first half that served as a true definition of a close quarters battle, the Lady Eagles of Fillmore emerged from the locker room fresh on the road against Holland. As a result, they performed a complete flip of the script on the Lady Dutch behind Amelia Rose’s phenomenal second half to set up a 43-36 hard-fought victory to record their fourth straight triumph to open the season.

“This was a well-earned victory on the road tonight,” Lady Eagles coach Tom Parks said. “Holland has size across the board and plays a reckless, kamikaze-style of defense. We were able to keep our composure, as they lost theirs and because of it, we strung together a brilliant and strong second half. Amelia scored most of her points in that half, and wound up having a huge game for us. I have to give credit to my forwards, they battled in the trenches all game. We give up a lot of height, but Preslee (Miller), Kylee (Ellsworth), Mattie (McCumiskey) and Rachel (Hatch) gave us huge contributions on the glass and in the paint against a bigger team.”

Fillmore (4-0) and Holland were neck-and-neck across the first eight minutes of play, delivering back-and-forth baskets until the Lady Dutch were able to scavenge a one-point lead to carry on. In the second, it was the defense’s turn, as the two teams combined for just nine points across the frame, with the hosts taking another narrow advantage with them into the break, leading by a 20-18 count.

With the Lady Eagles well within striking distance, the time to act was in the second half. They advanced forward and did exactly that behind a strong statement consisting of seven straight points out of the gate, setting up shop for what was a 12-6 run of Holland that allowed them to remain in front for good, despite some pressure down the stretch to close the game out.

Fronting that effort was Amelia Rose, who put together a tremendous second half for the Lady Eagles, scoring 11 of her game-high 17 points across the pair of quarters. Hope Russell chipped in with 10 points to go with four steals, while Grace Russell had seven points. On special teams, the rebounding paid massive dividends along the way, with Mattie McCumiskey grabbing 11 of them to take charge. Kylee Ellsworth ripped down six of her own.

Up next is a trip back home for the Lady Eagles to host the Lady Lakers of Hammondsport on Wednesday, beginning at 7 p.m. in The Rock.

Genesee Valley/Belfast 41, Campbell-Savona 25

CAMPBELL — With a fast start under wraps to begin their latest road trip on Monday, the Genesee Valley/Belfast ladies were hot on the button.

Despite host Campbell-Savona chipping away at their deficit to close out the half, the visitors in black did everything in their power to make sure their lead was never lost, as they emerged victorious with a massive third quarter run that allowed them to pull away towards a 41-25 win.

“The defense again was solid,” GV/Belfast coach Raegan Ryan said. “The girls really grouped at the half and focused a bit more on valuing each possession. Sometimes, teams can succumb to a mentality of trying to win a game in one possession, one quarter, one half, or play a bit tight. It’s really all about winning that possession, and the girls did that to come away with a win behind a lot of contributions from the whole team aside from points. It’s always nice when we find ways to hold teams to 25 points or below.”

Genesee Valley/Belfast (4-1) started the night with the first of two electrifying runs of Campbell-Savona out of the gate, as the defense buckled down and held the Lady Panthers to a near-complete standstill in the midst of their 12-2 run, which was powered by the likes of Sophie Zillgitt and Mary Hamer — combining for 10 of the team’s 12 points in the frame.

The action would begin to shift gears slightly, as Campbell-Savona took aim at chipping away their early deficit to the visitors in black with four different scorers for the Lady Panthers all recording at least a pair of points to help the cause. But Genesee Valley/Belfast was able to keep their advantage together to take a 22-11 lead into the break.

When the third quarter arrived, a completely different story.

Led by Mary Hamer and her powerful presence downlow, Genesee Valley/Belfast was able to put strong emphasis on the start of the second half with their momentum-maintaining 17-2 run of Campbell-Savona which saw their senior leader piece together eight of the team’s points in the stanza, as the visitors used it to the fullest possible to capture victory at the final buzzer.

Hamer would go on to finish with a game-high 16 points for Genesee Valley/Belfast, while Abby Sullivan knocked down both of the team’s triples to put towards a 10-point performance. Following up was Zillgitt, who finished with six points.

Coming up, the Genesee Valley/Belfast ladies will partake in tournament action over the road in Franklinville beginning Thursday night, as they prepare to take on Chautauqua Lake at 6 p.m.

BOYS VOLLEYBALL

Wellsville 3, Bolivar-Richburg 1

WELLSVILLE — Although the Wolverines of Bolivar-Richburg provided a major bounce back from a first-set defeat to the host Lions, momentum would remain in Wellsville’s favor to finish off the battle on Monday, as they claimed victory in the last two sets of the night in strong fashion to finish a four-set, 25-8, 16-25, 25-12, 25-8 win — their third in their first four games.

Leading the offensive efforts for the Lions (3-1) was Xavier Scott, who posted a game-high 10 kills to go with three blocks, two aces and a helper.

Fillmore 3, Genesee Valley/Belfast 0

FILLMORE — On a night that saw nearly 60 service points combined from four different scorers, it was one that the Eagles of Fillmore declared victory in on Monday against visiting Genesee Valley/Belfast, as they used a magnificent night of service to ignite a straight-set, 25-12, 25-20, 25-18 win inside The Rock.

Among the leaders from the back line was Nathan Tanner, who scored a whopping 21 service points to go with his two kills on the attack.
