12/08/2016 - BOYS AND GIRLS BASKETBALL: York Picks Up Sweep of Waverly

By Kellan Heavican

WAVERLY----York scored 42 second half points as they turned a two-point halftime lead into a 64-47 victory Thursday night at Waverly High School.


After a back and forth first half, the Dukes (2-0) used a 10-3 scoring run to open the third quarter after Brady Danielson’s basket.  However, Tanner Wubbels scored with 2:48 left in the third quarter to pull Waverly within 32-27. That’s the closest the game would be.


Danielson scored 16 of his game-high 25 points in the second half including a three pointer with 5:38 left in the game and a three-point-play with 4:48 left to keep the game out of reach of the Vikings.


Waverly (0-3) didn’t give up.  With 2:06 left Alex Murray drilled a three to pull them within 54-31, but Garrett Snodgarss answered with back-to-back baskets to end any hopes at a comeback.


Wubbels finished with 17, which led Waverly.  Snodgrass finished with 14.  York outscored Waverly 42 to 27 in the second half. 


In a clash of Class B top 10 squads, the York Dukes overpowered the Waverly Vikings.


Waverly’s Taylor Cockerill cashed in on a three with 5:30 left in the third quarter that pushed their lead to 32-22, the largest of the night.  York (3-0) gave up four third quarter three’s, but in the final frame clamped down on Waverly.


The Dukes took their first lead since the opening basket of the game with 1:18 left as Lauren Riley hit two free throws.  Riley’s scored 12 of her game-high 14 points in the second half.


Waverly had one last attempt with under five seconds left, but the desperation heave by Clair Jones fell short.  Cockerill led Waverly with 9 even though nine different Vikings scored.  


The Vikings (0-3) were only held to one-three-point basket from Cockerill in the final frame in addition to five crucial turnovers.  Waverly hosts Blair on Friday.
