Olean's key to victory was three-point shooting. They won 67-32 behind 18 points apiece from Covi James and Zion James.

Lancaster's 49-40 win over Orchard Park saw a 61-year Section VI title drought snapped for the Legends. Gianluca Fulciniti chipped in 18 points in the victory.

The late games settled the Class A crossover game. Health Sciences hung on to beat top seeded Amherst 53-49 in a close game that came down to fouls and free throws.
