FALCONER - The Falconer Golden Falcons placed third at the Falconer Duals among 10 teams on Saturday at Falconer Central School.
Lake Shore beat Warren, 38-29, in the championship bout with Falconer losing a heart-breaker in the semifinals to Lake Shore, 33-31.

The pool standings showed Lake Shore winning Pool A with a 5-0 record followed by Falconer at 4-1, Randolph at 2-3 , Salamanca at 1-4 and Panama at 0-5.
Warren took Pool B with a 4-1 record. Cattaraugus-Little Valley was at 3-2, Southwestern at 3-2, Cassadaga Valley at 2-3 and Maple Grove at 1-4.
The event was put together hastily by the Falconer Boosters to replace the Holiday Classic.
The tourney has been held for 27 years, but this year they didn't have a place to hold the event. Jamestown Community College, last year's site, was holding the annual Post-Journal Classic for men's basketball and the Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena was hosting the nationally televised Progressive Skating and Gymnastics, so, the Falconer Boosters took over the event.
