MAYVILLE - The Chautauqua Lake Thunderbirds opened their season with a tough non-league contest against perennial power Riverside.

Riverside's inability to make free throws kept the game close, as it defeated the Thunderbirds, 55-38, in boys high school basketball action.

The Frontiers were a miserable 12-of-36 from the charity stripe. They took a 16-11 lead after the first quarter and increased the margin, 31-16 by halftime.

"We couldn't score," Chautauqua Lake coach Michael Putney said. "It was first-game jitters. I wanted to schedule something strong. We got a good taste of playing good competition."

The Thunderbirds played Riverside bucket for bucket in the second half as they were outscored 24-22.

Ian Clute led Chautauqua Lake with 12 points and 16 rebounds.

"Ian was very solid," Putney said. "He is one who can break out for a lot of points. I look for good things down the road."

Chautauqua Lake returns to action Thursday in the first game of the Pine Valley Tournament.
