It was a banner night for the Finger Lakes East boys basketball league as Sectional play opened in Section V on Monday.
In Class B1, the undefeated #2 seed Wayne rolled past Dansville for a 32 point win and into the semifinals where they will host Livonia on Wednesday night. #4 Palmyra-Macedon will join Wayne in the B1 semifinal round as they held off a late surge from Hornell to hold on for a 53-44 win. Pal-Mac will travel to Batavia next to take on the #1 seeded Blue Devils.

To cap off an undefeated night for the Finger Lakes East, #6 seed Mynderse Academy followed a 2+ hour bus ride to Wellsville with a 67-41 rout of the home-standing #3 Tigers. The win propels Mynderse into Wednesday night’s semifinal where they will travel to face #2 C.G. Finney and superstar guard Markus Robinson who survived an upset bid from #7 Attica, 70-67. Wednesday night’s Mynderse-C.G. Finney semifinal game will be streamed live on FL1 Radio with pregame starting at 6:45 pm.
