“We won the matches we were supposed to win, and we dominated those ones,” Hagenbuch said.

Bainbridge-Guilford 42, Franklin 41
BAINBRIDGE – In his first game of the season, Alex DeGroat sunk the go-ahead free throw with 13 seconds left lifting Bainbridge-Guilford to its first win of the season on Thursday night.
Before DeGroat’s free throw, B-G guard Trevor Halaquist came alive offensively hitting two threes and scoring all 10 of his points. “Trevor started to penetrate to the basket instead of staying on the perimeter,” said B-G coach Greg Warren. “That was the difference maker.”
Sean Jones led B-G with 15 points – all in the first three quarters — and DeGroat just missed a double-double scoring nine points and grabbing nine rebounds.
Pete Ouimet pulled down a team-high 11 rebounds for B-G.
“Sean Jones was tough for us most of the game, and I thought it was his best game offensively,” Warren said.
B-G plays at Delhi Tuesday.

Sherburne-Earlville 5, New York Mills 0
EARLVILLE – Sherburne-Earlville improved on its pin count — and its overall record — moving its unbeaten mark to 3-0 with a sweep of New York Mills Thursday afternoon at Hi-Skor Lanes.
Tyler Coughlin rolled the match’s high individual game tossing a 255, while Zach Miles finished with a 647 triple.
“The varsity was much better, and Zach Miles and Tyler Coughlin were great for us tonight,” said S-E coach Don Philhower. “The rest of the guys threw some good games to get us close to 3,000 for the first time this year.”

Norwich girls win at Chenango Valley


Norwich 45, Chenango Valley 32
FENTON – Norwich will have to win games against several different styles of play if it intends on meeting its goal of winning a sectional championship.
Chenango Valley played a slow-down game — to no avail, mind you — as the Purple Tornado improved to 2-0 on the season in Wednesday night’s road contest.
Makenzie Maynard led the NHS offense with a season-high 17 points, and Meg Komendarek added 11. Maynard was equally effective in each half scoring eight in the opening two quarters and nine more over the final two.
“Chenango Valley wanted to run the clock down on every possession, and that is hard for us because we want to go up and down the court,” said Norwich coach Josh Bennett.  “Chenango Valley did everything it could to stay out of that type of game.”
Norwich jumped out to 10-point lead in the opening quarter, and raised the advantage to as many as 22 points in the third quarter.
NHS struggled with ball movement, and was a little indecisive on the offensive end for much of the fourth quarter against CV’s man-to-man offense.
“We did what we needed to do and had some good possession on offense and made baskets when we needed them,” Bennett said. “We’ll get better with our halfcourt offense. We just need more reps.”
Norwich hosts Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Friday at 7:45 p.m. in the first round of the Norwich Pennysaver Tournament.
Norwich:  Sherman, 0; T. Hansen, 0 3-6-3; G. Mirabito,  0; K. Dowdall, 0; K. Evans, 0; K. Seary, 2 0-0-4; M. Maynard, 7 2-2-17 ; M. Komendarek, 3 5-8-11; B. Murphy, 1 0-2-2;  S. Benjamin, 2 4-5-8; S. Gage, 0. Totals: 15 14-23-45.

Oxford 61, Schenevus 24
OXFORD – Oxford unveiled a full-court press with great success in Wednesday night’s blowout win over Schenevus.
The Blackhawks jumped out to a 19-4 lead after one period with Josh Nelson scoring eight points, and senior forward Kevin Davis dishing out six of his nine assists.
“We had a lot of fast break stuff; they didn’t handle our pressure well,” said Oxford coach Tim Davis. “We started a new defense and cranked up the press. We started the team we thought would be our best zone pressing team, and it worked well tonight.”
Kevin Davis didn’t score in the opening period, but finished strong scoring 17 points. He added 11 boards, nine assists, and eight steals.
Nelson contributed 12 points and four steals, and Harry Oliver netted nine points while pocketing eight steals.
Oxford finished with 28 steals as a team.

Sherburne-Earlville 60, Cooperstown 58
COOPERSTOWN – Sherburne-Earlville knows it will be in for a battle every time it travels to Cooperstown.
Wednesday night was no exception.
The Marauders overcame a shaky first half — and a 14-point deficit — scoring the winning basket with just 2.8 seconds remaining.
After a missed shot, Ian Fleming put back the offensive rebound to unlock the tie game. Cooperstown had a look at the tying basket in the final second, but the shot was off the mark.
“It was a good, gutty win, and we definitely did not play our best basketball early in the game,” said S-E coach Kevin Vibbard.
Matt Hull led the S-E comeback with 19 of his team-high 22 points after halftime. Hull drained two free throws with 1:07 left to tie the game.
“Matt showed more patience in the second half,” Vibbard said. “He let things play out in our halfcourt offense, and he was able to get to the rim.”
Gavin Giroux added 16 points for the Marauders, while Sam Tuttle pulled down a team-high 10 rebounds.
S-E: T. Rodriguez, 1 2-3-4; Bigford, 1 2-4-4; Matt Hull, 7 8-11-22; D. Seymour, 1 0-2-2; Ian Fleming, 3 0-0-6; Gavin Giroux, 7 2-2-16; Sam Tuttle, 2 2-2-6. Totals:  22 16-24-60.
