Fredonia defeated Dunkirk 39.5-15.5 and Falconer by a score of 40-15.

Dunkirk picked up its first win of the season, 37-18, over Falconer.

“I knew we had kids who could play,” Fredonia coach Ross Conti said. “With good preparation, which was tough with the spring, I knew we would be good. We started such a young team the last two to three years, it’s not a surprise. I’m pleased with how good they have played with the weather. To be shooting these scores, I’m happy.”

Nick Pagano shot a 39 for Fredonia while Jake Szymzcak 39, Alec Ambrose 41, Jake Lilly 44 and Kyle Muldowney 44 also contributed to the victory.
