HAMMONDSPORT — Through what was mainly a defensive start to the ballgame on Friday, something had to begin opening up as time went on between both Friendship/Scio and the Lakers of Hammondsport.

That time would come in the second quarter, when the host Lakers rode every groove they could find, as they posted a 20-point end to the first half while continuing to hold Friendship/Scio in check to garner all the room they needed to remain out in front with the lead, sealing it permanently in the second half with a 55-37 triumph.

After an 8-6 narrow lead held in possession by Hammondsport, the hosts in white and purple would begin laying down more brickwork for what was their biggest stand of offense in the game — a 20-point bonanza fronted by four different scorers, including a pair of three-pointers from Henry Morrison outside, and some help inside by Cody Cook with his pair of scores in the paint.

In all, a 20-5 run would come into full fruition for the Lakers to close out the first half with a 28-11 lead. An advantage they would go on to seal even further into the second half to wrap up the victory for good.

Pacing the Friendship/Scio (3-9) offense was Ethan Davenport, who had two of the team’s three triples from beyond the arc to put towards a team-high 14 points. Brenden Loucks and Taylor Moore each concluded with nine points.

Up next for Friendship/Scio is a trip back home to welcome in the Arkport/Canaseraga Wolves for a 7:30 p.m. tip-off in Friendship, Tuesday evening.
