The Niagara-Wheatfield girls basketball team won its first game under new head coach Kevin Schucker on Friday night, beating Kenmore East 54-33 in a Niagara Frontier League game at N-W High School
Kirsten Klettke (14 points, 11 rebounds) and Allyson Czaja (12 points, 10 rebounds) each had a double-double for the Falcons (1-3, 1-2).
“It feels great,” Schucker said. “We went up against two tough teams in Lockport and Niagara Falls. It was nice to come home and be able to get one.”
N-W will next play in the Tonawanda Tournament on Dec. 27 and Dec. 30.
“It’s nice to get a win going into the tournament,” Schucker said. “We’ve played well, just not enough to beat Niagara Falls and Lockport. Hopefully we’ll come back with some momentum going into league games.”
