The semifinal rounds of the boys and girls Wayne County Championship Tournament played out on Tuesday night in the gymnasiums of the higher seeds and, for the most part, the top seeds advanced to Thursday night’s championship games.
In the boys tournament, Lyons held off a stiff challenge from East Rochester to pull away late for a 9 point win. The #1 seed Lions will host #2 Gananda at the Atwood Gymnasium for the league championship on Thursday night. Gananda, after trailing most of the first half, finished strong to defeat North Rose-Wolcott, 56-47.
Like Lyons, the top seeded East Rochester girls would advance to the championship game on Thursday night with a 72-46 win over the Gananda Lady Blue Panthers. ER will face North Rose-Wolcott who won on the road at Clyde-Savannah, 41-33.

I should be working but I am having a hard time taking my eyes off this game. Both teams are impressive & playing very hard. The defensive intensity is palpable. Folks, if you aren't watching @CAGrlsbball this season you are really missing out on a special team. #OneBravesFamily pic.twitter.com/396BxT70pZ

Luckily with all the concessions that had to be made to squeeze in high risk winter HS sports in NYS that they didn’t try to combine them…
Reminds me of playing the Knicks at The Garden in ‘94. https://t.co/33VQd6wJlV
