Waverly 59, Candor 37
The Wolverines rebounded from their opening game loss by picking up a boy's basketball win Tuesday.
Waverly jumped out to a 23-9 first quarter lead and never looked back.
"It was a good game for us," Waverly coach Lou Judson said. "We came out and played really well in the first quarter. We got our post more involved and took advantage of their smaller size."
Big man Patrick Bronson was the forefront of that attack, getting a double-double of 25 points and 11 rebounds.
"Bronson had a good game in the post," remarked Judson.
Cody Marchese added nine points, eight steals and seven assists for the Wolverines while Dylan Perry had 10 points. Alex Uhl chipped in with five points, Zack Cooney and Ryan McFarland had four points each while Tim Sutton netted two points. Cooney also had eight boards.
It wasn't all good for Waverly (1-1), though.
"We struggled at times taking care of the basketball," Judson said. "But we were able to work through our mistakes."
Dylan Anderson had 11 points to lead Candor.
In the JV game Peyton Miller scored 23 points to lead Waverly to a 78-45 win. Hunter Bodine and Garrett Sutryk had 15 points each as well for the Wolverines.
Waverly hosts Watkins Glen on Friday.
