Ridgway gradually pulled away with the help of small spurts throughout the game as the Elkers remained undefeated with a 61-38 victory over Port Allegany in boys basketball action Wednesday night at Ridgway Area High School.
The Gators (1-2) held with the Elkers (4-0) through the early section of the first quarter as the game was even at 9-all. Ridgway closed the opening quarter on a 6-0 run as a Tony Leithner basket was sandwiched in between two hoops from Eric Matheson.
JOHNSONBURG â€“Â Despite a late rally from Smethport in the closing minutes of the game, unblemished Johnsonburg (4-0) closed out the visiting Hubbers, 55-49, and now shift their attention to next weekend's Elk County Holiday Basketball Tournament.
Nursing a 3-point lead down the stretch, Clay Schuler came up with a timely steal off Johnsonburg senior Kyle Sheldon and hit a layup on the other end to cut the deficit to one point at 48-47.
