Benet Academy looks to remain atop the ESCC standings with a late season win over Marian Central. It’s been a remarkable year thus far for the Redwings, who were just named the number one seed in the upcoming East Aurora Sectional.
The Canes got a very strong showing from senior Adam Pischke, who led all scorers with 26 points but it wasn’t enough to take down the Wings. Benet’s James Dockery led the Redwings with 20 points to go along with a 16 point outing from Jason Malonga as Benet Academy cruised to its 24th victory of the season.
With just one loss in ESCC play, the Redwings are still holding on to a share of the conference lead. Also at 7-1 in conference is Marian Catholic, which handed Benet its lone conference loss. The Redwings need a win against Carmel coupled with a Marian Catholic loss to Nazareth to win the ESCC outright.
