Otselic Valley 67, George Jr. Republic 47

DRYDEN – Otselic Valley rebounded from its first loss 24 hours earlier rolling to a non-league road victory at George Jr. Republic Wednesday.

David Cerasani scored 11 of his 14 points in the third quarter, and Taylor Duell netted seven of his game-high 21 to push the Vikings’ lead to 21 points. “We were down (after the loss to DeRuyter), and we played like it in the first half,” said OV coach Dave Loomis. “That game took a lot out of us physically and emotionally, and it took a while to get under motion tonight.”

Robert Guyer added 11 points for the Vikings (18-1), who play their regular season finale at Cincinnatus Friday.
