Reiller, John lift Warriors to win over Chaut. Lake

SALAMANCA ‹ The Warriors bounced back from a deflating loss earlier in the
week with a win Wednesday night against Chautauqua Lake, flattening the
Thunderbirds 70-57 thanks in part to the efforts of freshman Jackson John
and teammate Christian Reiller.
Coming off a loss where the team allowed 22 fourth quarter points on
Tuesday, the second game in two nights proved to be light work for the Red
and Gray as they stifled an early T¹bird rally after a slow start. The first
quarter yielded just 18 total points. The Warriors exploded for 21 points in
each of the next two quarters.
After putting together a 15-6 run when the visitors had closed to within two
points in the first quarter, John nailed two of his 13 points to end the
half with a 31-20 cushion. He also had eight rebounds, two assists, and two
steals. Reiller added 22 points, four assists, and three steals ‹ in part
thanks to his aggressive offensive style that sent him to the line for 12
shots ‹ in a game that, while perhaps not fundamentally sound, was a win for
the Warriors (5-8).
³A win¹s a win,² agreed coach Brian Koscielniak, who at times appeared
frustrated with his team¹s lack of fundamental play.
The third quarter saw the lead balloon to 19 points, as John nailed three
treys, including back-to-back jumpers from the wing as the defense failed to
close in time.
Meanwhile, the Warriors also got 16 points from Thomas Williams, who played
just three quarters due to illness. Matt DeBoy continued to come into his
own with eight points, 12 rebounds and three assists after a double-double
performance the previous night. He has 27 rebounds in just the two
consecutive games.
