NT complete season sweep over NF

(Continued)

Tonawanda News —

The Wolverines then fouled Stone, who sank both of his free throws to put the game out of reach for the Falls.

"It feels good. I wanted to win last year (against the Falls) but it still feels good," said Stone, whose Jacks lost all three meetings against the Wolverines last season. "I wanted to pass this game and I was looking to pass, but they were giving me driving angles, so I figured why not and I ended up scoring. … I think we've played better (this season) and I think we will play better against (Ken) West next Tuesday."

The Jacks have now won five straight games, and Mountain said that his team is better than it was before winter break.

"We want to practice, plan and prepare like we just lost our last game. After losing to West and Lockport (in December) we were disappointed, but not discouraged," Mountain said. "It actually made us hungrier. We chose not to take any time off over Christmas. We came here and worked and just assessed where we needed to get better. The results are obvious. We're a better team than we were before the break. In a sense it's like we had a second training camp."

Niagara Falls held Jacks leading scorer Joe Piotrowski to only five points, but Awad reached double figures, netting 12 points and grabbing five rebounds.

The Jacks travel to Kenmore next Tuesday in a pivotal NFL showdown with the Ken West Blue Devils. Tip is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
