Warriors Edged at Home on Senior Night


Rochester fell behind early and couldn’t make up enough ground as the Warriors took a 52-47 defeat to visiting Aberdeen on senior night Wednesday.

“Senior night, lots of emotions,” Rochester coach Derrick Pringle said.

The Warriors allowed Aberdeen to jump out on an 18-6 run to start the game, then outscored the Bobcats in the remaining three quarters but it wasn’t enough to cut the deficit all the way.

“Second and third quarters we started to close the gap, but a couple of miscues and technical fouls took us out of the game,” Pringle said.  “Hats off to (Aberdeen) coach Buckman. He really prepared his team to compete and they came out from the start and never let up. Hats off to them for a job well done.”

Tyler Klatush led the Warriors with a game-high 17 points, while Rochester ace pitcher Tony Groninger added nine and Larenz Payne scored seven,

Rochester closes out its season at W.F. West on Friday.
