Delhi 32, Greene 23
GREENE – Delhi bumped Greene from the top spot in the MAC standings using tough defense to hold down the Trojans in Tuesday’s matchup of division leaders.
Delhi led 16-2 at one point in the first half before the Trojans regrouped cutting the tally to 16-14 early in the second half.
“We had some foul trouble in the first half, and two starters out hurt with our offense and ballhandling,” said Greene coach Dave Gorton. “We got within two points, but couldn’t get over the hump. What hurt us was not taking care of the ball.”
Other than the third quarter when Greene reached double-digit scoring, the offense was stuck in low gear.  Thankfully, the Trojans’ always-tough defense kept the count within striking range.
“Our goal was to hold (Delhi) in the 30s, and we thought we would be able to win the game if we did that,” Gorton said. “We just had so many unforced turnovers and passed up good shots we don’t normally pass up.”
Greene will host Bainbridge-Guilford in the MAC Tournament on Friday.

Greene 55, Delhi 40
GREENE – Goal one for Greene was accomplished Wednesday night.
The Trojans (11-0, 14-4) finished unbeaten in MAC play for the first time in program history topping Delhi by 15.
Goal number two:  “Take the league (championship),” said Greene 1st-year coach Chris Rice.
Greene extended its lead in the fourth quarter hitting 8 of 10 free throws. Joe Miranda led the way making four of his six charity tosses finishing with 10 points.
“We’re seeing extremely unselfish play, we’re moving the ball around, and we’re taking better shots,” Rice said. “Our defense has been playing great; it was just about finishing on the offensive end.”
The Trojans finished plenty in the second half after clinging to a 15-9 halftime lead.  Jordan Harrington, the MAC’s top three-point shooter, had a pair of 3s in the second half finishing with a team-high 12 points.
The Trojans made seven three-pointers in the game, four of those coming in the pivotal final period.
“These guys don’t give up, and the mental toughness is really there,” Rice said, whose club has won eight games in a row. “They’re all buying into what we’re trying to do.”

Sidney 46, Oxford 38
SIDNEY – Combined with Delhi’s loss Wednesday, Sidney moved into the number two spot in the MAC standings topping visiting Oxford on senior night.
The Warriors led by seven heading into the fourth quarter, and held off Oxford making 8 of 10 free throws. Kyle Smith was a perfect 6 of 6 from the foul line in the fourth quarter, and he had eight of his 10 points in the final stanza.
“They’re a good foul shooting team, and we tried to not foul them, but we ended up fouling them a couple times down the stretch,” said Oxford coach Tim Davis of Sidney.
Outside of Kevin Davis’ big offensive night, the Blackhawks struggled on offense. Davis had 24 of his team’s 38 points, and he added eight blocked shots and eight rebounds.
“They went to a zone defense in the second half, and we failed to make outside shots,” Tim Davis said. “We were hoping to get into the top four (of the playoffs), it just didn’t work out.”
Oxford (10-8) hosts Bainbridge-Guilford Tuesday.

Sherburne-Earlville 61, Canastota 19
SHERBURNE – It was a big night for Sherburne-Earlville’s seniors.
Before Wednesday night’s game, the Marauders honored their outgoing seniors, and then the seniors played most of the first-half minutes in Wednesday’s blowout victory.
The victory also clinched a Center State Conference Division One title, said S-E coach Karen Mulligan.

Afton 48, Oxford 36
AFTON – Afton defeated Oxford for the second time in less than a week Thursday, although the Crimson Knights had to withstand a much more spirited effort from the Blackhawks.
Shakari Coss had her second straight strong game against Oxford scoring 14 points including seven in the final period to put the game away.
“We moved the ball pretty well, and it was nice to be in a competitive game,” said Oxford coach Chris Palmer. “We played hard, it just didn’t come out the way we wanted.”
Oxford sophomore Hannah Ryan had her team’s highest individual scoring game of the season finishing with a career-high 18 points in the defeat.
“We had (Hannah) in the high post against their zone, and she made a lot of nice, strong moves to the basket and some nice passes,” Palmer said.
Oxford plays at Harpursville or Deposit on Monday.

Bainbridge-Guilford 47, Greene 33
GREENE – If B-G coach Bob Conway didn’t look overly excited after Friday night’s MAC playoffs win over Greene, it’s likely because there is still work left to be done.
Conway had good reason to smile as his Bobcats avenged an early-season loss to Greene, and with the victory, the longtime B-G mentor became the first area coach to reach 500 career wins.
“He’s a heck of a coach and he’s very humble,” said Greene coach  Dave Gorton. “That’s why kids play so hard for him because he’s worried about them. It’s a credit to him (reaching 500 wins). It’s not easy to even coach 500 games.”
Similar to the first meeting, the Bobcats stretched their lead out in the second half, only this time, they didn’t give the advantage back.
Becca Reyes hit three three-pointers in the third quarter, and Jillian Cannistra had three of her four threes in the second half as well as a five-point game turned into a double-digit margin.
Reyes had a game-high 13 points, Cannistra scored 12, while Megan Palmatier netted 10.
“There was a little bit of back and forth early in the third quarter, then they hit the three-pointers,” Gorton said. “It’s tough to beat a team when they shoot the ball as well as they did. We just weren’t able to weather the storm.”
Katie Carey had 10 points for Greene, nine coming in the second half, and Nicole Flohr netted eight.
Greene plays Windsor in a non-league game Monday, and then hosts Sidney Wednesday for third place in the league.
B-G matches up with Delhi next weekend in a rematch of last year’s final. The Bobcats are seeking a repeat championship.
B-G: Jenna Nordberg, 0; A. Miller, 0; Abi Selfridge, 3 0-0-6; M. O’Hara, 0; Jillian Cannistra, 4 0-0-12; Becca Reyes, 5 0-0-13; Kori Thornton, 2 2-2-6; Megan Palmatier, 4 2-2-10. Totals:  18 2-2-47.

Sherburne-Earlville 51, Adirondack 24
BOONVILLE — Sherburne-Earlville continued its decade reign of dominance in division one of the Center State Conference Friday night.
The Marauders (13-5) held host Adirondack to just two baskets in the second half to pull away for the victory.
The win clinched S-E’s fourth division title in five seasons and fifth championship over the past 10.
“We played really good defense, and actually should have had a bigger lead than we did,” said S-E coach Kevin Vibbard. “We came back in the second half and continued to play even better defense, and we were able to finish the shots we missed in the first half.”
Gavin Giroux and Sam Tuttle led the way for the Marauders with solid post play. Giroux came alive for eight points in the third and Tuttle added two inside buckets.
Giroux led with 14 and Tuttle scored 10.
“We got it inside in the second half, and those guys finished,” Vibbard said of his two big men. “They’ve been doing it all years. They are two of the better post players in our league.”
Sherburne-Earlville plays at Canastota Monday.
S-E: T. Rodriguez, 0; Tyler Bigford, 2 4-6-8; K. Fredricks, 0; M. Hull, 3 1-3-7; D. Seymour, 4 0-0-9; I. Fleming, 1 0-0-3; J. Jillson, 0; I. Fredricks, 0; Gavin Giroux, 6 2-2-14; S. Tuttle, 4 2-4-10. Totals:  20, 9-15-51.

Sherburne-Earlville 44, Adirondack 29
BOONVILLE – Sherburne-Earlville’s usually potent offense had an off night, but the defense was in peak form in Friday night’s road win.
Savannah Irwin scored 21 points including five 3s to lead the Marauders (15-4), and Lilly Berg scored 15.
S-E broke away in the third quarter, and held Adirondack to just two points in the final quarter to open double-digit lead.
“We didn’t shoot it as well, but it was good to see that when we weren’t playing well on offense, we were still doing well on defense,” said S-E coach Karen Mulligan.
The Marauders play at Cooperstown Tuesday in a non-league game to finish up the regular season. Cooperstown is currently the number one ranked Class C team in the state.
“It’s a good way (playing Cooperstown) to keep us sharp heading into sectionals,” Mulligan said. “It’s always tough playing over there, but we’ll give it our best shot.”

Unadilla Valley 49, Hancock 46
HANCOCK  – The future does indeed look bright for Unadilla Valley.
Sophomore Julia Oglesby had 24 points and 18 rebounds leading the Storm past Hancock Friday evening.
Freshman Shelby Meade had two buckets for UV midway through the final period, and Oglesby scored her team’s final six points. The Storm will play for fifth place in the league standings next week.
“They played a box-and-one on Sierra (Badger), but that didn’t seem to slow us down,” said UV coach Brandi Whitbeck. Julia and Shelby worked really well together tonight, Hunter Lake had another great game, Brooke Brown came off the bench and had two crucial baskets, and Kaleigh Fairchild played great defense on their best shooter. We have a lot of bright spots in the years to come.”
Ogslesby scored six in the opening period and Lakin had a three and a two. Oglesby did her best work over the final two quarters scoring 14 points.

Class B
Norwich failed to grab the brass ring in team scoring, but did plenty of good work on an individual basis claiming five individual titles at the Section IV Class B meet Saturday.
The Tornado, defending Class B champions, finished in second behind Windsor scoring 196.5 points to Windsor’s 209.
Earlier in the season, Norwich easily handled the Black Knights in a dual meet victory.
“The difference in the scoring was that we had a lot of first-round byes where we couldn’t score those bonus points (for winning),” said Norwich coach Bob Hagenbuch. “Windsor didn’t have that problem. They were able to wrestle more kids in the first round and score those points.”
Eli Rodriguez (99), Dalen Geislinger (120), Ty Rifanburg (126), Zach Mills (132), and Cole Rifanburg (145) all came home victorious.
Mikey Squires (99), Nick Glanville (106), and Jake Franklin (182) had runner-up finishes.
“I think that’s the most Class B winners we’ve had in a long time,” Hagenbuch said. “Any coach will take that, and we’ll take that over first place in the team standings if we had a choice.”
Geislinger’s win proved pivotal from a seedings standpoint in next week’s sectional tourney. Geislinger avenged a dual meet loss to CV’s Caleb Wiggins – a match he was winning — picking up a 5-0 decision.
“That was a great win for Dalen, and one of our best highlights of the day,” Hagenbuch said. “He dominated all aspects of the match.”
In defeat, Glanville and Franklin garnered the respect of Hagenbuch. Glanville went six minutes with defending state champion A.J. Burkhart of Waverly, and Franklin continued his big turnaround from last season when he finished with a losing overall record.
“Nick wrestled really tough, and Jake has been a nice surprise for us this year,” Hagenbuch said. “All of the guys are peaking at the right time.”
Team scores: Windsor 209, Norwich 196.5, Chenango Valley 176, Maine-Endwell 156.5, Oneonta 121, Susquehanna Valley 110, Owego 91, Waverly 65.5.

Class C

Bears capture team title
B-G/A/H coach Brandon MacNaught has typically looked at the Section IV Class C tournIn wrestling terms, move as many people forward into the Section IV tournament.
The Bears had double-digit wrestlers finish among the top three with half of those guys earning Class C titles as B-G/A/H captured the team title scoring 258 points.
Walton-Delhi was 24 1/2 points back at 233.5, while fellow Chenango County representative, Greene, was in the middle of the pack at 138.
“Our biggest downfall (in this tournament) two years in a row was the mix of injuries, bad decisions, and poor academics that forced us to leave a lot of points in the wrestling room,” said Bears coach Brandon MacNaught. “We hope to get through these issues and reach our full potential. We only have three seniors, so next year could be really nice, also.”
Greene picked up a pair of individual champions. Nate Banks (152) beat the Bears’ Madison Hoover in overtime, 3-1; and Braxton Howell (195) pinned his way to a first-place finish.
