Harpursville 75, Unadilla Valley 64

NEW BERLIN – Despite its seven-game winning streak going by the wayside, Unadilla Valley earned a measure of respect pushing unbeaten Harpursville for four quarters.

The Hornets, the number one ranked Class C team in the state, had 13 points from Amanda Frayer in the first quarter, and built a 45-32 lead at the halftime break.

“They couldn’t miss in the first half,” said UV coach Brandi Backus. “We made some adjustments at halftime, and that helped.”

Led by Amanda Off, Jordan Anderson, and Taylor Davis, the Storm closed the deficit to as little as six points in the second half. “We never gave up,” Backus said. “There were some mistakes in the fourth quarter, but you’ll have that with a young team.



Off scored a team-high 23 points, Anderson netted 20, and Davis 15.

Frayer topped all scorers with 28 points as the Hornets improved to 10-0 on the season.

The Bobcats went 1-for-10 from the field in the third as their lead was trimmed to one. Heggie and Lacey Barry had 18 combined points over the second half to lead the Oxford comeback.
