Oursler leads Vikings over Pioneer in Class A final


Niagara Gazette — Grace Olszewski buoyed GI through the stretch sail. Captain Shannon Rogers scored 11 for Pioneer.

Banker said she felt blessed by the playoff match-ups which provided only minimal challenges after a narrow win over Williamsville South in the very first round.

The turnovers, which gave much of the first half the look of playground ball, were “something we’ve struggled with all year,” said Banker. Ball protection will be crucial and the Lady Vikings encounter the Section V (Rochester) champs Pittsford Mendon at 1 p.m. Saturday in the Far West Regional at Buffalo State.

LADY VIKINGS’ LOG: It was a full house in the N-Trip gym at game time… In the house: another banker, First Niagara manager Mike Samland… Two tip-offs started the game when the first resulted in another tie-up… GI went three-less for the second consecutive game but shot just about 40 per cent (21-54) from the field… Most of the Pioneer players got plenty of hang time on high-arcing free-throw attempts… The hosts upped the ante with pizza in the media room.
