Upon further review, Welch needs 50 to break mark

Quarterfinal Friday could turn into the third historic moment of the scholastic sports season.

In case you missed it, Cheektowaga senior Dominick Welch is on the verge of breaking one of Western New York's most hallowed records -- the career points mark of 2,355 currently held by 1990 Buffalo News Player of the Year Ritchie Campbell.

The Cheektowaga basketball Twitter account sent out a clarification Tweet, letting folks know that Welch needs 49 points to tie and 50 to break the mark during the Warriors playoff game at 7 p.m. against Lewiston-Porter at Cheektowaga.

Here's the Tweet.

Welch is coming off a 51-point performance in his last game against Depew last week. He had 41 in the game prior to that and in his last five games is averaging 37.4 points per outing.

If he breaks the mark tonight, it would be the third major Western New York scholastic career record to fall.

Jeff Anastasia of Olean broke Mel Palano's career coaching victory mark in January. During the fall, St. Francis quarterback Jerry Hickson broke Joe Licata's career passing yards record.
