A high powered Henninger basketball team invaded Powers Gym on Thursday night and won its third game of the early season.

The Oswego High School Buc varsity basketball team gave it their all, but it wasn’t enough as the Black Knights walked out of the gym with a 72-54 victory.

With Franky Vigliotti scoring a game high 23 points, including five from three point range and the Knights working the ball inside the visitors were on the run.

The Bucs were getting solid hard nose play from Dustin Sands who led the Bucs with 18 points and Ryan Lavner tossed in 15 points to lead the home team.

In the first the Bucs kept it close trailing just 15-9 and at halftime the count was 32-21.  Henninger began to pull away in the third and built a solid lead  behind a 29-point explosion over the eight minutes while limiting the Bucs to just 16.

Oswego didn’t give up, but the face paced ball movement by the Knights was difficult to defend. Henninger displayed why it is one of the best high school basketball teams in New York State.

Behind Sands and Lavner, Zach Gillard scored eighth, Dylan Lavner six, Nate Miller three, Steve Kunelius two and Trevor Martin had a foul shot.

Marquane Silvers and Romero Collier scored 17 and 15 respectively for the visitors.

Lady Buc Hockey Battles
