Nine of Peyton Griffiths’ game-high 23 points came in the final quarter, when visiting Milford pulled away for a 45-35 Tri-Valley League boys basketball victory over Edmeston on Friday.
The Wildcats outscored Edmeston, 16-6, over the final eight minutes.
Griffiths and Will Ward both hit three-pointers early in the fourth quarter as Milford began to pull away.
“He hit some tough shots and we lost track of him a couple of times,” Edmeston coach Darren Belden said of Griffiths. “He’s a good player. He’s quick and he has a quick shot. We had good defense on him a couple of times and he still made it.”
Ward finished with nine points and Max Lang had eight for Milford.
Logan Vibbard’s 11 points paced the Panthers, who received 17 rebounds from Brandon Fallon, and eight points and 15 rebounds from Nick DeVries.
Edmeston (3-5, 2-3) will travel to Cherry Valley-Springfield on Tuesday.

Hancock cut its deficit to four points in the fourth quarter, but with about three minutes left, Palmer went to the line for a 1-and-1. He hit the first before missing the second.

Bauerle, who had 24 rebounds, four assists, four blocks and three steals, shared team-high scoring honors with Palmer, who had seven rebounds and four assists. Teammate Lucas Butcher had 11.
