Lyons wins in Clyde to split Wayne County title

In one of the best atmospheres in all of Section V basketball in Clyde, it was the visiting Lyons Lions who emerged victorious on Wednesday night by a score of 47-35. With the win, Lyons splits the Wayne County League crown with the Clyde-Savannah Golden Eagles who each finish with one league loss each, at the hand of the other, and on their rival’s home court.The game got off to an ugly start in front of a standing room only crowd with both teams struggling to find the mark. It was sophomore guard Damon Hunter who provided the initial spark for Lyons with a trio of first half three pointers. Hunter finished with a team high 17 points in front of a hostile road crowd.D.J. Long added 12 points and Tre’ Johnson scored 10 in the victory but it was senior guard Devan Veeder who sealed the deal with two big fourth quarter three-pointers. Lyons’ head coach Zac Young called Veeder one of his favorite players he ever coached in a post-game interview and was happy his senior leader could experience a big win against their rival in his final regular season game.For Clyde-Savannah, who finished the regular season at 16-2 with a share of the league crown, it was Kam DiSanto leading the way with 10 points and 7 blocked shots.It was a rough way to go out on senior night for Clyde’s pending graduates/Lyons currently stands at 15-2 as both teams now turn their attention towards Sectionals. Lyons will likely be a #2 seed in Class C2 while Clyde-Savannah should be the top seed in Class C3.The game was webcast live by FingerLakes1.com Sports.
