New coach Chuck DeTaeye leads Braves past Newark, his alma mater, in the season opener and that leads our roundup for Wednesday's area sports
Winning your first game with your new team is always special.
But for Chuck DeTaeye, Wednesday night was even more special. That’s because the new boys basketball coach at Canandaigua Academy opened his era with a 58-52 win over Newark, his alma mater.
The Braves opened quickly with a 10-0 lead before Newark found its legs and closed to within six points heading into the second quarter. The game remained close the rest of the way, and CA had a one-point lead in the final minutes before it was able to hold off Newark for the final margin down the stretch.
Scott Loforte scored 16 points to lead CA, Jack Ferris scored 12 and Connor Fisher added 10.
Taylor Clements led Newark with 17 points, which included a full-court shot at the buzzer to end the third quarter.
The Braves play next against Brockport on Friday at 5:30 p.m. at the Spencerport Tournament.
