BATAVIA — Undermanned Attica had Notre Dame on the ropes on Friday night but the Fighting Irish would eventually prove to be too much as they outscored the Blue Devils 20-10 in the fourth quarter to pull away for a 81-65 Genesee Region League win on Friday night.
Jordan Welker was outstanding all night for Notre Dame as he finished with a game-high 28 points to go with seven assists, five rebounds and four steals.
Jimmy Fanara and Jaden Sherwood also reached double-figures for Notre Dame as Fanara had 18 points, six rebounds and three steals, while Sherwood added 17 points, five steals and four assists in the win.
Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jay Antinore each chipped in with nine points for Notre Dame, which connected on 14 3-pointers on the night.
“We finally played a full game start to finish,” Notre Dame head coach Mikey Rapone said. “The first half we were a little suspect on defense but were able to keep up thanks to some good offensive play. At halftime I called on two guys (Fanara and Sherwood) to play defense on their two best players and they were up to the task. All around the defense was way better in the second half holding a very good offensive team to 25 points. But there is improvements to be made on each end still. We play a very good CG Finney team on Tuesday in Finney, so we need to be ready.”
Cole Harding had a big night in the losing effort for Attica as he finished with 25 points, 11 rebounds and six assists.
Ethan Meyer added nine points, Jack Janes netted eight and Landyn Thomas finished with six assists for the Blue Devils.
“Tonight was a really good high school basketball in terms of energy in the gym from both teams,” Attica head coach Rob Crowley said. “Hopefully we can put four quarters together and make a run here at the end of the season. Notre Dame did a nice job tonight in the second half.”
