ROCHESTER — Michael Farrington hit the game-winner with one second left to lift the NJCAA III second ranked Central Lakes College Raiders over the Rochester Yellowjackets 77-55 in a Southern Division game Wednesday.


Central Lakes went into the half down two in a game that saw many lead changes and was tied with 16 seconds left to play.

“This felt like a playoff game. Rochester doesn’t lose very often at home, so it is a great win on the road, “ head coach Jim Russell said.

Jessie Flemming scored 21, Maurice Hernandez 19 and Kwamaine Johnson 17 for the 20-1 Raiders,

Johnson added seven rebounds and eight assists.

“Johnson had a great game,” Russell said. “We played well as a team with 21 total assists and 53 percent shooting from the field.”
