Sherburne-Earlville 63, Mt. Markham 58

WEST WINFIELD – Sherburne-Earlville defeated Center State Conference Division II leader Mt. Markham on Friday, and moved to within one game of the Mustangs in the standings.

In a game of runs, the Marauders (5-3, 8-7) had the last one, a 6-0 salvo to break away from a 55-54 game. Cameron Yerton hit a three-pointer, and Sean Boise converted essential free throws to close out the win.

Early in the game, S-E finished the first quarter on a 12-1 salvo, and built its lead to 30-14 with three minutes left in the first half. Mt. Markham bundled together an 18-2 rush to knot the game by halftime. “I felt we showed a lot of character, especially on the road, to bounce back and play a good second half,” said S-E coach Kevin Vibbard.



Boise led the Marauders with 25 points on 8-for-13 shooting, and Yerton scored 11.

S-E hosts Waterville on Tuesday.

Otselic Valley 70, Cincinnatus 57

SOUTH OTSELIC – Otselic Valley regrouped in the second half, and erased Cincinnatus’ seven-point halftime lead to win for the 11th time this season.

Dusty Davis came alive with a career-high night. Davis, who was averaging under 10 points a game coming into the contest, was mired in a recent scoring slump averaging just 5.5 points over the last four games. The junior forward broke through in a big way netting 34 points.

“Thirty-four points is a big night for anybody,” said OV coach Dave Loomis. “(Davis) had been struggling to find his range, but he was able to take the ball inside, and did a nice job for us.”

Ethan Rounds added his second straight double-double finishing with 11 points and 12 rebounds. “Cincinnatus came to play tonight, and they gave us more than we could handle in the first half,” Loomis said. “We made a little adjustment at halftime, and tightened up defensively.”
