By Shawn Robinson - WNJ Sports Writer

BATAVIA – Clinton-Massie scored the first 14 points at Batavia and cruised to a 78-40 SBAAC American Division victory Friday.

The Falcons (6-2, 3-1) never let up after that, pushing its margin to 40 in the waning seconds.

Massie’s advantage reached 20 after a 7-0 run midway through the third quarter and 30 after an 8-0 run midway through the final period.

Falcons Brendan Lamb and Nick Chowning shared game-high scoring honors with 15. Teammate Griffin Laake chipped in with 14.

John Witt came off the bench to lead the Bulldogs (4-8, 0-4).

The win puts Clinton-Massie in a first-place tie for the American Division lead with Western Brown, who suffered its first league loss of the season Friday to New Richmond.

CM also won the JV game, 47-41, behind Nate Baker’s 16 points. Max Applegate had 18 for the Bulldogs.

Clinton-Massie is scheduled to host East Clinton Saturday night with the freshman game slated to start at 4:30 p.m. followed by junior varsity at 6 p.m. and varsity at 7:30 p.m.
