Elmira NY- Last season the Elmira Express boys basketball team did not win a game. This year they are out to a 2-0 start including an upset win over Maine Endwell Wednesday night.Sophomore Tyler Moffe(#11 middle) led the come from behind win, banging home 17 points. Right behind him was Tyler Ladd(#5 left)) who hot handed 14 second half point enroute to a 16 point night. Alex Bellardini and Zach Nierstedt(#10 right) each finished with 13. The Spartans led after each of the first three quarters, but Elmira caught fire,early in the fourth quarter, hitting from nearly every point of the floor. That, coupled with Maine Endwell's cold shooting, enabled the Express to pull from a 12 point deficit to a 17 point edge late in the fourth. M-E did cut the lead to 11 with less than a minute to play, but by then it was too late. Elmira improves to 2-0 while Maine Endwell drops to 1-1.
