Dansville J.V. 50 Hornell J.V. 43

It was a close contest as Dansville & Hornell got together in junior varsity hoop action at “the Corral” on Friday (Jan. 8) night. The Lady Mustangs weathered the storm of a depleted roster & some foul trouble to overcome the Red Raiders 50-43 to improve to 11-1 on the season. Hornell came into the contest & took an 11-10 lead following the first 8 minutes of play. Things quickly turned around in the 2nd quarter as coach Mike Didas noted, ” we used good pressure defense in the 2nd to force some turnovers & then managed to convert them on the other end to regain the lead at halftime.” Dansville outscored the Red Raiders 20-9 in the quarter in taking the double-digit lead into the second half. Hornell kept chopping away at the deficit & cut it to 6 heading into the 4th quarter. The Mustangs managed to hang on for the 50-43 win.
