Tonawanda News — “Once we have our momentum it’s hard to stop (us),” Herne said. “It’s encouraging and we try to stay positive and we try to build each other up if something goes wrong.”
While the final score appears rather lopsided, the Lady Panthers gave the Warriors a strong test they needed to keep them sharp. Especially when you factor in that smaller, quick teams have been a challenge for Tonawanda this year.
“It was just fantastic. The kids wanted it so bad,” said Tonawanda coach Jay Hall. “We told them we can’t start slow, and they didn’t. In the third quarter we were ready for it, but Newfane chipped away, chipped away, and cut it to nine. Then our kids just said this is enough, let’s go. And it’s just great. It’s super, not for me, for them.”
Kalyn Compeau added 14 points for the Warriors and Paige Emborsky had 13 points for Newfane.Follow @tonanewssports and contributor @DaveARicci on Twitter for complete high school sports coverage.
