Junior forward Jomaine Bogan finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds to power second-seeded Clyde-Savannah over No. 5 Kendall 72-28 in the Section V Class C3 championship Saturday at the Blue Cross Arena at the Rochester Community War Memorial.
It is the Screaming Eagles’ first sectional championship in boys basketball since 2000. They were 12-8 last season.
“They bought in, they worked hard and this is the result,” said head coach Tim Jackson, who is in his second year coaching Clyde-Savannah (19-2).
“We’re still not done yet, is what I told them in the locker room today,” said Jackson, whose team will play Class C1 champion Mynderse in the Class C championship game at 7 p.m. Monday at Waterloo.
“It’s going to be a tough game,” said Jackson. “I expect that. I want that. If we do what we do it should be interesting.”
Kam DiSanto chipped in 11 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 blocks for C-S.
Kendall finished 13-8.

Class C2 finals
No. 2 Lyons 64, No. 4 York 42
Damon Hunter scored all 18 of his points in the first half as second-seeded Lyons jumped out to a 35-18 halftime lead and claimed its first sectional championship since 2006.
Tre’ Johnson added 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds and Tony Franklin had 12 rebounds for the Lions (18-2), who held a 40-28 advantage.
“We just felt more comfortable than we did last year,” said Lyons coach Zac Young, whose team fell to Cuba-Rushford by three points in last year’s sectional championship but returned six seniors to this years squad.
“We had a good burst in the first quarter and we were able to maintain the lead.”
“Our main goal was to win sectionals,” Young said. “I told them sectionals was cake. And on every good cake there is icing, and I like icing. They got the message. I told them to enjoy tonight but let’s try to go as far as we can. We want to represent Section V in the state tournament.”
Lyons will play the winner of Monday’s Class C qualifier between Mynderse and Clyde-Savannah.
Lyons and C-S split their two matchups this season.
