Niagara Falls 73, Lew-Port 50

Head coach Sal Constantino had a different tone to his voice following the Wolverines’ league finale win.

Each player on the Niagara Falls roster contributed points, led by Mikey Bermudez’s total of 18 to lead all scorers. Breon Harris also chipped in 14 points with four assists and six steals and Tyler Sanders had eight points to go with nine rebounds as the Wolverines capped off a season that has featured its fair share of growing pains with a vindictive win, avenging an earlier loss to the Lancers.

“This season hasn’t been the greatest, but we got through it in a big way by ending things on a high note tonight,” Constantino said with a hint of optimism as the team heads into Section VI postseason play.

The Wolverines’ only senior, Jake Martineau, hit a pair of three-pointers in the first quarter that Constantino said set the tone for the rest of the game as Niagara Falls avenged an earlier loss to the Lancers.

Lew-Port was led by Jernard Jackson and Joey Scirto, who each managed 15 points in the loss.
